Windmills of Kinderdijk

It has been a while ago since I've posted a photo from the Kinderdijk windmills. It is very hard to be original, because there are a lot of visitors in this nice little place in Holland.


This time I don't want to be original, but I just want to post a nice picture with some nice colors.


I took several shots with and without Hi-tech ND-grads; but there was one large problem with them: when using the 10mm range on my UWA lens, I see the filterholder on the edges. That's why I also used a piece of cardboard to 'block' the light in the sky. Very nice technique, without any color cast from plastic filters.


Only one bad thing: it only works well enough with longer exposures.


Have a nice day everyone!
