[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I am about to leave for a photo trip to either a orchid area or to a landscape area. So excuse me for not giving many critiques straight after posting this photo. I will return to it when I am back

This is a photo from my archive. From the day that I visited this new nature area. This used to be farmland, but has been given back to nature. Still a few trees are standing, but with the water at this level, they are soon to be gone. But new trees will grow and animals and other plants will love this area.

Ha Niek,

Een mooie compositie,met fraaie kleurenlagen en reflecties,succes met de fotografie vandaag,groetjes


Gorgeous Niek...It could even be here on a peaceful evening at one of our small lakes...you are very fortunate to have such good opportunity to be in the right places...so many in the world in strife, conflict, hunger and all..who would benefit from a change of life and geography to a place like this...perhaps as in Heaven, who knows...Very well done.

Hi Niek,
This is such a wonderful landscape!
It's so relaxing to look at!
Wonderful reflection, great soft colours.
Well done

What a lovely peaceful scene. You caught the sun at the precise moment where it wouldn't blow out the color. Perfect work! I waited and waited at Oxbow Bend (Tetons) several evenings but alas no drama in the sunset. There was sun, and there were clouds but there was no color. I suppose it is more of a fall thing???
Were you surprised at all the ice and snow in my photos from there... we sure were. "brrrrrrrrr...."

Evelynn : )

There, one critique down and a hundred to go to catch up : P

Hoi Niek, mooi Hollands plaatjse, erg mooie weerspiegeling, ook geraffinneerd frame. Ben benieuwd naar nieuwe postings van je trip. Succes, groet Reina

Hallo Niek,

Ben benieuwd waar je mee thuiskomt. Dit is in ieder geval een zeer fraaie landschapsfoto met een ondergaande zon. De contrails zo net boven de bosrand komen hierdoor ook goed tot uitdrukking. De spiegelwerking van het water is fenominaal. Ieder sprietje of wat dan ook is in het water duidelijk zichtbaar. Klasse. Goed werk afgeleverd. Groeten en TFS BOB

Hi Niek.

Very nice picture you have here!
I love the colors and the compo, but the things I really love the most here are the reflections.
Absolutely stunning!
I'm glad you went to your archive and shared this lovely photo with us.

Best regards,

Hi Niek,
A pleasure to see this landscape from you, it's a wonderful natural moment you captured here. The composition is first class and the exposure perfect. The clarity is wonderful too and soft colours very soothing. You have some real gems tucked away in your archives!

Hi Niek,
Beautiful photo with great light and colors. Exposure control is very good, the reflection is just like a mirror. Very well composed. TFS
Best wishes,

Hi Niek
This is a beautiful sunset with the whispy clouds, still water and silhouette of the large lone tree. It looks like a haven for nature. The colours are soft and create a tranquil feel. Nice framing too.
TFS Janice

Great shot. The combination of colours, the reflections, and position of the tree, all look beautiful.

The reflections are almost 100% of the scene on the top portion of the photo - incredible. Thanks for sharing. -Kelly
