Amsterdam, Veer Distelweg Long Exposure

Just before 2014 came to an end, I travelled to Amsterdam Noord and made this long exposure of the Veer Distelweg ferry stop. The weather was terrible and I did not manage to capture a log of cloud movement, but I am pleased how this turned out. I decided to process it in colour, and while I’m not sure yet, I think I will be doing more colour long exposures, rather than the traditional black and white treatments.

I shot it using my trusty Lee Big Stopper, as well as 3 stop hard grad ND filter. Processed mostly in Lightroom, but I did take it into Photoshop to remove a few distracting elements, as well as the final colour treatment.  You can see the before and after below if you are curious.
