In the Netherlands, there are some locations that a very famous amongst photographers. Reitdiephaven in Groningen is one of them. The beautiful, colored houses in combination with the reflections in the water allow beautiful shots.

For this photo, fellow photographer Edwin Mooijaart and I drove about 1.5 hours to the city of Groningen. While driving to Groningen, we had some doubts about the conditions but luckily when we arrived there were some clouds that allowed to creating some nice long exposure effects. There was almost no wind, which meant nearly perfect reflections.

For this photo, I used a 9-stops ND filter. In Photoshop I stacked 6 shots to further extend the effective exposure time. Stacking was done by creating a smart object and using stack mode ‘mean’. The settings per shot were: f/11, ISO 100, 6 s, 15 mm. The effective exposure time of the stack is thus 36 seconds. The camera used was a Sony a5100 in combination with a Sony 10-18mm lens.
