Dramatic Sunset, Amsterdam, Holland - I took this photograph from near the viewpoint atop the NEMO Science Museum during a dramatic sunset in Amsterdam, Holland. Sint-Nicolaaskerk (Basilica of Saint Nicholas or Basiliek van de Heilige Nicolaas), is the city's main Roman Catholic church located in the Old Centre district. I used a technique on this image by which I take a bracketed set of different exposure images during the sunset then another batch during the blue hour without moving my camera at all. Doing this allows me to combine the city lights into the sunset image using blending modes in Photoshop. I only use this technique if the sky is good, otherwise, I just use the blue hour for cities, skylines.
