Rotterdam Kop van Zuid - Comet Neowise

Comet Neowise above the city of Rotterdam. For this image I had been looking on google maps to find a good viewpoint over the harbor to the 'Kop van Zuid' in Rotterdam, while keeping in mind the location of the comet. I found a small alley/street ending up at the water side where I could get by car and from there I had this great view of the area.

 

This image is a HDR image made of 7 exposures ranging from 0.5 - 15s at ISO800 with a Nikon D810a and a Tamron 24-70mm lens. The comet was processed in a separate stacking to get out the tail properly and merged with the original image. It was a great sight and even in the bright city I was able to see it with my own eyes, but it was clear it weakened a lot compared to last week.
