I took this photo in some unusual circumstances. I was in Amsterdam and I wanted to take a picture of the most photographed spot in Amsterdam. With all the tourists there it’s impossible to get a clear shot of the Iamsterdam lettering. To avoid getting recognizable people in the frame I took some distance and decided to got the other side of the water. Now something special happened, the dark clouds above the city were almost frightening, while the museum building was full in the sun. I used an ND (grey) filter for a long exposure (3 seconds), making the water reflect the light better.
