The Other Side

Unfortunately, due to a few over-enthusiastic photographers in the past, I was not allowed onto the grounds of Van Nelle factory in Rotterdam. I always go and ask nicely first, but 9 times out of 10 they don't allow you to just walk around and take a few pictures. This is why I sometimes bend the rules ;-)

 

I didn't this time though, but it was tempting as the weather was perfect to photograph this white building. This panorama, consisting of 16 images, was taken from a public road, all nice and legal. I used Photoshop to merge all the images, then did a minor levels adjustment and applied sharpening. Last but not least I converted to infrared using Nik Silver Efex.

 

The Van Nelle Factory is a Dutch national monument (Rijksmonument) and is on the list of sites under consideration for the status of UNESCO World Heritage Site.
