I take this photo on the same day as my other photo of the "Noordvliet in a warm sunlight", but now in the afternoon. Handheld made. Cropped the photo a bit. Contrast +3, light -2. The big cloud on the horizon gives a beautiful effect in the water of the Noordvliet. The 1/3 rules are not really correct, but I like the photo on this way. I hope you like it and thanks for viewing.

Hello Bob,
Delighted to see such a wonderful and excellent composition from my friend Bob!
so beautiful especially with the good contrast of colouration in the whole image!
you had captured well with good fg perspective and a far distance view!
the mirror-liked reflection is a big bonus towards superb image
my special compliment
from NZ, Tony

Really looks like mirror, perfect reflection. Nice colours and light, interesting composition.

Hello Bob,
Ahhh, that cloud formation is awesome, a real eye-catcher!
This is a well balanced composition with fine foreground interest, good sharpness in all distances...
The fine reflection is adding value, colours are rich and attractive!

Hoi Bob, erg mooi plaatje van dit oer hollandse landschap. Met name de wolken partij komt erg mooi uit, in die zin gaat de rules of the third niet helemaal op.
groet reinilda

Hoi Bob,
Met zulke een super reflectie en zo'n mooie wolk, maakt mij de verdeling van de foto ondergeschikt. Een manier op dit meer op te lossen is het lege rechter deel van de foto te verwijderen en tevens ook een stukje van de top van de foto. Daardoor wordt het riet aan de linker kant nog meer een met de foto.

HI Bob.
i like how you are using water as mirrors. The symmetry is great. Good focus, POV, DOF and colours. I like the light comming form the left side. Good!!
have a nice day

Hello Bob

A wonderful mirror like shot.
Sharp focus and details.
The lighting and colours are beautiful.
Well thought out POV.
That puffy cloud is a stand out!


Hi Bob

An excellent capture. Good detail and exposure. Expertly done.


I am in Vancouver - middle of the night - jetlag!!

Hi Bob,
Rules are made to be broken,especially thre rule of thirds.
This looks great just as it is.
Great exposure of this shot allows us to see the clouds perfectly reflected.
A beatuiful scene from rural Holland ... oops ... Netherlands.
Nice work.

Hello Bob. Beautiful landscape shot with pristine reflection on the surface. I like the perspective with the puffy white cloud against the blue sky. Well done and best regards. Jusni

Hello Bob,
A nice image here, great depth of field to keep everything in focus. The reflection is well exposed, the sky has a few hotspots, a graduated neutral density filter would help there. A nicely composed image, nice work.

Wonderful reflection and a beautiful landscape, some times rules are meant to be broken :-)

te gekke foto
zo apart die wolk zo alleen
maar toch ook niet
groetjes lou

Hi Bob!

I have went through your interesting, rich and bautiful gallery and stopped over at this picture that draws its attention to me. I like its simplicity and the beautiful shape of the clouds. The reflection is superb, too!

Kind regards

Hi Bob,
Prachtig landschap en dat met de industrie vlakbij.
Mooie reflectie in het water en met een prachtige wolkenpartij en mooie kleuren.
