Amsterdam has everything you need for spending a perfect day in the city. Start by having breakfast in one of Amsterdam’s beautiful cafés or brunch spots, then take in an art exhibition in a famous museum, stroll along the canals, stop for lunch… go shopping, have a drink in a laid-back brown café, go out for dinner to a cosy local place or a high-end restaurant, and then hit Amsterdam's bustling nightlife with its glamorous cocktail bars, trendy new nightspots and clubs with big-name DJs. Or you could go for a canal cruise, check out some art galleries or smaller museums or explore up-and-coming neighbourhoods. The options are near endless!

Hello Daniel,
You captured the busy mood of Amsterdam really well here. There are a lot of interesting and colourful elements to discover. First of all the many tourists passing by, the shop window reflects the surroundings really nicely too and of course a photo from Amsterdam isn't complete with some bicycles in the foreground.

Hello Daniel,
The colourful decorations on the shop windows create a nice frame for this street view. People are walking in both directions in a seemingly never ending flow. and of course bikes are parked all along the street. And even though there is no canal seen here, there are nice reflections in the water.
Kind regards,

hello Daniel,
une superbe scène de rue animée, typique d'Amsterdam avec tous les vélos.
Bonne journée

Hello Daniel,

Nice reflections in the rain soaked street with excellent sharpness & repetition of the iconic bicycles seen all over the city. The people animate the scene & provide scale. Tfs!

Bonjour, Daniel,
Le sol encore luisant d'une averse récente valorise la beauté particulière de cette composition.
L'image est très animée et très colorée avec les personnages en mouvement.
Très bonne réalisation.

Dobar dan.
Interesantan pogled, lep trenutak, dobar tekst ...
Dobar rad, lepo pokazano, dobar kontrast i ostrina, lepe boje, lepo uhvacen trenutak sa prolaznicima. Lepo mesto sa biciklama i refleksom na vodi.
Lepo popodne i sve najbolje, srecno.

Good day.
An interesting sight, a beautiful moment, a good text ...
Good work, beautifully demonstrated, good contrast and sharpness, beautiful colors, beautiful moment captured with passers-by. Nice place with bikes and reflection on the water.
Nice afternoon and all the best, good luck.

Bonjour Daniel,

J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage classique mais très efficace dans le cas des scènes de rues.La pluie nous offre de beau reflets sur le pavé et les gens qui semblent pressés animent bien la scène.

Hello Daniel,

No vertical format this time. I like it anyway. :)

Best Wishes,

Hi Daniel
A well registered slice of urban street life with bright colors, attractive setting and good contrast being part of strong element. An interesting observation with so much going on......

Excellent shot, Congrats
Best wishes

Great streetscene Daniel, capturing the busy atmosphere of the shopping street. The rain probably didn't help you enjoy Amsterdam but added to the great reflections and light you have here.

Hi Daniel
Sometimes rainy days are the best to take street photos. I really like the matching colours and subtle reflections in the wet pavement and street.
Have a nice weekend

Hi Daniel

Busy crowd going to visit the shops during a week end, I like the bikes giving a clue for the cuty name and the colored paintings on the shop windows, concentrating our eye on the wandering people
Best regards

Hello Daniel Nobody can miss the 'hubbub' happening in the store front because the symmetrical colourful designs on either side of door concentrate attention on people and to the
bicycles, legendary means of transportation in the Netherlands! Cheers

Hi Daniel
this is another really cool looking scene you captured in Amsterdam. the way you composed it with the colourful stripes on each end kind of give it the false sensation of movement.
and the wet street after the rain gives off hints of reflections, and the lighting is superb. cool shot! cheers
