The Amsterdam Light Festival goes from 27 Nov. 2014 until 18 Jan. 2015. You can see Art work from the water on a special boat route through the canals of Amsterdam, which allows you to enjoy light art, projections and installations by various artists.

I was planning to make some night photos of the festival next week, but not yet tonight. I was very lucky to capture one of these artworks, while coincidently passing in front of it on my way home. And that became photo #9 of the Photo 101 Rehab.

I had no time to prepare for this photo, as I was inside a bus. When it stopped for a second, all I had to do was to shoot fast. As I had set the shutter for a previous photo, that it is what was used for this one too. The first photo has been edited to B&W and the second has no edition.

For now, enjoy the view of this Ghost Ship, which is made of lights reflecting from a water fountain.  I will return there to make a sharper one.

And.. if you didn’t know yet what the Photo101 Rehab is, you still can do.


Once upon a time there was Photo101 course with daily assignments, which ended on November 30 and for that we miss it ever since.

Bloggers from all over the world connected as a strong community; sharing photos, chats and tips, and everyone added a special touch to the course, making it addictive.

Some of us, including me, didn’t want to say goodbye, and started feeling the first addiction’s symptoms, as described by inmate Albert nty6x at his blog Passionately Curious.

“Withdrawal symptoms may include the incessant need to carry your camera everywhere with you, the need to wake up in the wee hours to take photos during the golden hour, and checking up on others you met during the course to see what their newfound knowledge has brought fruit to.”

I had to think of something to resolve this.

Welcome to the Photo101 Rehab Center; especially dedicated to some confessed addicts: my fellow blogger and first ‘patient’ Andy Townend, as well as Mara Eastern, Cardinal Guzman, DesleyJane, Justine, Amy, Teresa, Albert, Terri, Giving Thought, Ellen, Nalinki, Mariangeles, DwayCrafts, Lucy,  Terri, the newcomer Bampa’s Views, and to all others not yet confessed photo101 addicts.

The Rehab rules are simple:

Opening time: Add your link from 04 to 31 December 2014.

Themes: You only need to choose a technique you want to explore or already master but want to share. It is a free theme but bring with it an explanation of the technique you used, as well as any editing effects, so we can all learn from each other.

Vote: If you want you can vote on the photos you like the most. At the last day (Dec 31) of the Photo Rehab you  can vote on the top 10 and celebrate.

How to register: Create a post with your photo, and add it here by using the link below.

  1. Very cool photos, both in B&W and in color…it kind of looks like a ghost pirate ship! Seems that there is a skull on top?? Or are my eyes playing tricks with me?? I’m home with a cold so it could be the cold medicine I’m taking!
    Super photos as always!


      1. Whew! I’m glad I wasn’t hallucinating!
        Thanks for the well-wishes:) I am taking it easy and making chicken soup!
        Have a lovely rest of the weekend!

  2. you know i thought the second one was the edited one because of the vibrancy of those colours, I love the second one best as it seems a shame not to show those amazing colours you got by pure chance, great shot and I hope your having a fab weekend? x
