Happy 3rd advent!

The annual Amsterdam Light Festival has begun. I haven’t had time to check out all the art pieces yet, but here are two of them that I photographed the other day – “Two Lamps” and “Spider on a bridge”.

  3. Love the spider! Interesting how the colour of this shot is very different from last week’s shot. Have you altered the white balance? Or is something else different. More pictures of a great location! 😎

    • Yes, I made quite a few changes! I thought the warm temperature I used the previous week didn’t really fit these artworks, their lights were blueish so I went with a colder tone overall. They didn’t come out exactly how I wanted them, but I’m not sure why. I will try again 🙂

  4. A great idea to get people out and about. The light art makes an interesting contrast to the city backdrops.

    • Thanks so much! 🙂 I think it’s so nice to have this “free museum” in the city each winter, and I like the contrast between the old buildings and the modern artworks!

  5. Those are funny, and it all looks tasteful at the same time, I suppose because of that wonderful architecture. I especially like the first one, the way the scale contrasts and just the incongruity of it, while it’s so carefully done. Wow, I think I’m a little incoherent today….anyway, have a great holiday Camilla, if I don’t “talk” with you again soon.
