MyPictureSunday #12 - The Rijks Museum Amsterdam

10 days ago
71 in photography

Welcome my dear Steemian friends to another Episode of MyPictureSunday

I left Amsterdam and spent the last day at the famous Rijks museum. It's a great place to learn more about history and art in general. It's safe to say that this place is amazing - they have the most impressive library I ever saw. Before I tell you too much you should make your own impression. Sit back and enjoy my walk through the museum.

All photographs taken with a Nikon D750 and AF-S NIKKOR 24–85 mm 1:3,5–4,5G ED VR
The winners of the MyPictureDay contest will be announced tomorrow in a separate post.





















!




















I hope you enjoyed todays episode of MyPictureSunday! Tomorrow will follow the announcement of the winners of the MyPictureDay contest. Furthermore we will have this week some new episodes of Myth or Fact, the Steemit Crypto Challenge and TimTravels!

Steem on!

After following you for weeks now @timsaid i have come to notice one thing with the way you capture and layout these photos on your steemit posts which is its more of a story being told than just random photos these photos follow a systematic order as thought you are trying yo convey a message along to the viewers which i think is the original intent of your photos, photography is one of the skills and hobbies almost anyone of us should learn and take interest in life happens everyday and in this everyday life are many amazing moments that we need to capture that will be precious in the near future to look upon and reflect on thanks to the power of images, photographs and these special devices called cameras. #steemon thanks for these posts. keep the picturesunday photos coming.

Was there five years ago while they were renovating, so we missed a lot of the displays then. Going back this August and your photos have whetted my appetite! Thank you for the appetiser :-)

Hello @timsaid .. its nice travel, someday ago I posted about my travel in Istanbul, Turkey, but your way to make a post very interested. Its give me a motivation. I also have read some of your post below. Let's me resteem this one. Btw, my travel from Aceh to Istanbul will continue.

Nice Pictures! Since I have lived there for 25 years I could also recommend

  • the Van Gogh Museum and the Stedelijk Museum (modern art) in the same street.
  • or stroll in the nearby Spiegelkwartier for nice antique shops and traditional Dutch houses
  • maybe less well known but you can get the best croquette in the Netherlands at Holtkamp. It is at the Vijzelgracht (also quite near).

You definitely know your way around a camera well. The shots have spot on focus, exposure and composition.

My eyes gobbled up each photo. :) Thanks for sharing!

Have you thought of uploading some of these shots to Google maps/earth for others to enjoy?

I will fly to Amsterdam one day. And Rijks Museum is a must for everyone to visit once in a life.
I'll steal that giant ass diamond, take that ship and sail far away. Easy.

That library is impresive, the books are all on art/art history? The outdoor sculptures are interesting. Very nice as always, not seeing the Tim Filter as much on these :-), but still beautifully taken. Overall how would you compare your experience in Amsterdam vs Paris?

Some epic shots of that old school ship, so majestic! Love that depth of field on the cannons too! I don't know why, but I really want a model ship like that in my house... It won't go with any of my furniture. It'll just sit there looking bad-ass.

Quality shots. Please don't tell me that you took those with your phone. :)

This beautiful place, where discipline and passion meet, creating a maximum expression: art, which surpasses the limits of the temporal, mocking death, eras in line, manifesting absolute beauty, the deepest of man; Thanks @timsaid, for sharing what can not be there, such a work.

I was just there last December, of course the main attraction is the Night Watch painting. Although it's interesting enough that i heard it's not even the full size. they had to cut some part from both sides to fit in. By the way, i totally missed the library. I was only able to take pictures from the top. :( I think i must come back and visit it.
