Stadbroekermolen Sittard

Another place that has been in my mind for a long time. Whenever I wanted to go there something would interrupt me and I would end up taking pictures somewhere else. When I came there yesterday, I knew how the shot will look like. I knew where to stand, what will work, and what workflow will I use to make this place look great. I could imagine the whole process.

I prepared the camera for a panorama, turn it vertical and took several images going from left to right. I took 11 images and then I have repated the whole process again with a different aperture. On a first try I was using  -0.3 aperture and on the second one -0.7. This way I was 100% sure that the sky would not be overexposed.

I end up using the -0.7 aperture and loved the sky being perfectly exposed. It’s easier to open up the shadows and correct some of the grains in the image than trying to recover blown up highlights.

I hope you like this image too. Please if you do, let me know and give it a thumbs up.

If you like this image and would like to have a print version, please contact me.
