[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Tijdens een wandeling in de bossen van het Landgoed Twickel samen met SunToucher, kwamen wij dit meertje met prachtig spiegelend oppervlakte tegen. Hier en daar lag ook nog een dun laagje ijs. Zie ook de foto van SunToucher.

Hi Rein,
Excellent and beautiful landscapes.POV, colors, reflections, lighting, framing and composition are very good.Congratulations...

This is a very nice image. It has the potential of having a lot more impact with just a touch of levels and/or saturation. The entire center area is pretty much one tonal value...mid gray; the trees, the water, the reflections. I did a quick workshop and I think it makes the reflection area and that lovely touch of red a dynamic focal point.

Erg mooie foto. Ik ben het eens met Evelynn's commentaar. Maar ik denk dat dit ook komt door het verkleinen van de foto volgens de gestelde eisen.

  • Great

Hi Rein
Another inviting tranquil scene from your lens. You have captured this in such a way that it makes you feel like "I wish I was there". Soft light, smooth water, large trees, and flowing riverbanks makes one think of picnic baskets and a soft blankets.
The composition is really fine with nice POV. Colours could do with a pinch of saturation to bring out the reds, greens, and yellows that are prevalent in the photo and to highlight those lovely reflections. (I have looked at Evelynnís workshop and she did justice to your nice photo). The exposure and lighting was very well managed.
Great work and TFS.

PS. Rein if I could give you a word of advice, you should really attempt to upload some critiques. There are various spin-off benefits to you.
1. It is in accordance to the guidelines and the spirit of the site.
2. You've mentioned to me before that you are slightly challenged with the English language, so this is a valuable opportunity to (free of charge) gain some good skills and experience in it.
3. By critiquing other members you encourage them to visit your photos and thus critiquing you and so the chain continues.

I hope you accept this as positive advice and that you could see your way open to participate more fully in this activity.
Have a wonderful day.
