Photographer's Note

Rotterdam by Night

Last night I went out night hunting with Rinie. We have done it a couple of times during the day, and pictures from this are scattered thru our portfolios, and got the same idea to once go hunting at night while cycling back from a Surinam dinner along the lighted harbour cranes of the Maritime museum on the Leuvehaven a few days before the summer holidays. So yesterday we gathered at 00:30 AM, on the Wilhelmina pier and started off....

Displayed here is our famous Swan with the Euromast visible thru the tuien of the bridge. On the right is the Noordereiland, Rinie’s bailiwick. Due to the long exposure time (13 sec) the Maas took on silky and flowing appearance.

Rinie capture from De Hef taken from aprrox the same spot is here.

PCS2 tech: framed as composed in camera; contrast, levels, curves & saturation (differentially) adjusted; USM-ed; added a frame and saved for the web.
