Fun in Rotterdam, netherlands

Last Friday I decided to go to Rotterdam to do some photography. It was my lucky day because there was a lightshow on the new high rise building the "Zalmhavaven" I started early because in Rotterdam, you can't go wrong

Fantastic set. It looks like a cool and modern city and not what i would expect in Europe. I would love to visit there, looks like a perfect location for timelapses as well

Most people are focused on Amsterdam when they visit The Netherlands but for the architecture, you have to be in Rotterdam. Besides this area (Kop van Zuid) there are more interesting objects to find in this city.

Very nice series.  Yes, I like Samyang lenses.  Their new f1.8 series (24mm and 35mm) is very good.  Cheers.

with clear blue skies and thirty degree (C) weather. Just keeping up with my manual focusing skills at f/2 on a (slow) moving dog. Straight from C1P. Thanks for looking.

Thanks.  I love the lens.  Its really cool to have a smallish lens with that speed and versatility.  I am super limited when it comes to opportunities to shoot, as all of these were taken on the run with my 2 year old trotting along.

You have a lot of very interesting fauna to discover for such an urban area. And a very good eye to capture the mother and baby in the deep shade. Nice work.
