    Yesterday I made a day-trip to Amsterdam, which is a 1.5 hour ride by train from my place. Rain, wind, showers and sun were predicted so I was hoping for some nice photo opportunities. Unfortunately it didn't turn out great: the rain wasn't interspersed with sunny spells and around sunset the sun didn't really poke through the clouds. Oh well, I had a good day if only for being out.

    The National Maritime Museum (Scheepvaartmuseum)

    Just across the water north of the city center

    At the right a part of the EYE film museum

    When we went to Amsterdam last October, I remember wishing I'd got off the boat earlier by the time we reached this part of the water.... ! The light looks much nicer for your pictures though :)

    I think you are a little "harsh" on youself Ad :) You definitely got some very nice photos here. Particularly, #2 and #4 are brilliant - excellent framing in #2 :thumbsup:

    Agree, nice mood from the available light captured. The skies are dramatic.

    I know what you mean when you don't get just what you want. That said, I enjoyed this set.

    Sometimes moody can add to some impressive shots.
