    Hello Ryszard,
    This is a well known place to me since a few years back. This is where I made my own camera ready to take photos of people watching the Night Watch. I took some, but yours are much better, and I will probably never show mine. This photo has a good combination of art, people and the beautifully decorated ceiling. The WS is also very nice and well taken. In both photos you managed the light perfectly.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Roland,
    This artist seems to be making more or less the same sculpture every time. It's mainly the colours that change. This one is well placed in the square, or rather: you placed it well about 1/3 from the side. The building and the people form a nice background.

    Hello Will,
    Since you couldn't possibly call this Delft conversation, this title seems a lot more relevant. It looks almost exactly as the coffee-shop almost next door to where I live. People are always busy with their iPads and iPhones and rarely seem to be talking to each other. This was an obvious choice of B&W. The colours would mean nothing, the message means everything.

    Hello Miguel,
    A typical shopping street somewhere in India. This happened to be in Delhi, but could have been anywhere. The clothes hanging outside the shop make the photo very bright and attractive and the people enhance the atmosphere. The view of the street is a bit overexposed but not disturbingly.

    It's a fine composition of parts of the railway station with these two well known giants in the foreground. The colours and light are very nicely handled.

    Hello Jorge,
    Nobody can beat the Chinese for finding imaginative names for strange shapes in nature. These rocks are as strange as those outside in the park, but I don't really agree with the coloured light. I may be boring, but I would have preferred a normal, neutral light just showing us the shapes. But it's a well taken photo, so the colours are not your fault.

    Hello Silvio,
    This is a great composition of green fields, hazy hills, low clouds and the shining white village being such a fantastic focal-point far away in the valley. You found a superb vantage point for this.

    Hello Paul,
    I am sometimes asked why I waste so many photos in the workshop, where most people will not bother to see them. That question should go to you too. Each one of these would have made a lot of members proud if they could have used it as a main photo. They are all well composed, showing very different views in different lights and two of them are adorned by people. I love the nostalgic feeling of the one showing the Indian ladies.
    Have a nice weekend,

    Hello Pavle,
    A beautiful view of the trees so perfectly reflected in the water. The tree tops form two diagonal lines coming together on the right side of the photo. The warm tones make the view very attractive.

    Hello Nicolas,
    This is a fantastic view of the small village on the hillside and the mountains under the dark clouds further away. The sunny weather where you were standing has made the village look very cosy, and the tree creates a marvellously bright foreground. I love the contrasts between the warm tones of the foreground and the icy cold blue/grey background

    Hello Rob,
    Yes, you make me curious to see this building in a wider context. Judging from the building we get a glimpse of in the background, the main photo is quite straightforward, whereas #2 and #3 owe a lot to your inspiration and artistic eyes. The architect has looked at a lot of modern abstract art when creating these shapes and details. What looks good on a canvas obviously can look good on a wall too.

    Hello Janusz,
    It's a rough but scenic landscape where the small pond reflects the peaks and hillsides. There are fine contrasts between the bright areas and the dark shades of the nearer rocks. Clarity and colours are excellent.

    You captured beautiful details in this closely cropped photo. The light and contrasts underscore the three-dimensional effect of the sculptures. The brown and green tiles of the roof create a good contrast to the grey and yellow façade,

    Hello Benny,
    Basically I recognize this, but the tightly packed boats really create the conditions for another interesting composition. Just one guy wearing red and a conical hat was needed to inject some life into the picture. But is it really so well organized? 761 is placed next to 927, followed by 541 etc etc. That doesn't make life any easier.

    Hello Jimmy,
    This is not bad at all. In fact it makes me think of a scene from a movie of the 1960's, like from the French "la nouvelle vague". The play of light and shades is very nicely handled, and of course the young woman is a perfect focal-point.

    Hello John,
    It is a nice composition, as always, and the tree with the bright leaves of several colours, is a very strong eye-catcher. But, forgive me for saying this, there seems to be something wrong. Either the sharpness is not good, or the photo is actually over sharpened. Especially seen on the bushes there is a graininess that doesn't seem like in your other photos. It is also seen on the wall and the windows above the bushes. There is also a halo, a white line, along the contours of the roof that seems to indicate too much post-processing.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Ryszard,
    This is a very good photo where the impressive architecture of the Rijksmuseum is the main focus. I don't remember what it looked like before restoration, but it is delightfully light and spacious now, ideal not only for watching the art but also for taking photos. You chose the possibly best place in the museum for this photo, where we see its most famous Rembrandt masterpiece at the far side.

    Hello Mesut,
    These are nice neighbours, provided they don't smell too much. Maybe they only came for a short visit. If this is your backyard you seem to be living in the forest. It's a nice photo of the goats surrounded by the green and brown leaves and twigs providing lots of food.
