Amsterdam By Night

This may not be the best photo in terms of technique, but I like it. It was shot in Amsterdam, on the edge of the red light district. I love the reflections of the light on the water, and I love the blur seen in the moving canal tour boat. This photo makes this part of Amsterdam look pretty good. Amsterdam is a beautiful city, but the red light district is a little grubbier, more run down, and packed with tourists than the rest of the city. Don't let that stop you from going, should you ever visit Amsterdam. The red light district is a must see (especially at night, when the red lights and lots of neon are visible), it's just not an area to spend a lot of time in.
