Friday Image

Friday Image No. 192.


Stairs in the Maritime Museum, Amsterdam
Stairs in the Maritime Museum, Amsterdam. Fuji X-T2, 18-135 lens, ISO200, 1/100″ at f/5.6. Post processing with Nik Silver Efex Pro.

After a short break in Amsterdam last week, I’m now getting back into the groove of doing some work.

This week’s Friday image is one I shot whilst I was in Amsterdam (what a great city and nice people by the way – I’m definitely going to return for another visit). This shot isn’t what first springs to mind when you think about Amsterdam, but the view really caught my attention.

These stairs were inside the maritime museum. As you walked out onto the landing there were stairs leading down both sides before meeting on the landing of the next floor. As I walked down the stairs I couldn’t help but feel I had stepped into the Relativity drawing by Escher.

Correcting the perspective on this image was a little tricky and I can’t quite get it perfect. I did the conversion to black and white using Nik Silver Efex Pro and tried hard to emphasise the lines of the stairs.

I hope you like the shot and have a great weekend.

  1. Very interesting composition, thanks for sharing.
    Today I’ll leave the office just in time to capture the lunar eclipse. Sky is clear in São Paulo, I hope I get a good image.
    Have a nice weekend, greetings from Brazil.

      1. Unfortunately it was cloudy here too. I was able to see and photograph the very last moment of the lunar eclipse, when just a tiny portion of the lunar disc was shaded.
