And once more Treklens: *Naaldwijk*

There are circulating some more photo's on TL from Naaldwijk and here , this shelterd spot .. called in Dutch ' Hofje ' English " Elm-Housing"
A place where in the old days older people spent there last years. Also Vandana2923 has a few VERY good shots of this place.

As you might have noticed .. my ''Style'' has changed since lately I am using PhotoShop CS2.
The discription for what I did here .. stap by step.. can be found in the intro story of my photo, 9 photo's back :

**John T 's windmill; using Vandana's PS technique**

A remark in between: Question about tilt..
(good question)
When you look to bottom.. on right it looks like a little tilt, I also do see that now..
BUT..but..if we look to the roof it shwows another image, see? Thanks for the remark(s)

Thanks for your pop-in Folks

Kind regards

John T

If we share what we know..
than others may grow!

Hej John,
Indeed, you did a good job in your latest pictures with this program!
A strong composition, colors and a good POV. Just one obs: it is tilt to the right?
Thank you again for shearing with us and for the note.
Hälsningar from Visby,

Very pretty shot John.
Harmony of atmosphere, colours, lightning. Nice places. Well done. Tfs.Stev

Good evening John
I love this composition, the red of the shutters is outstanding, in fact, despite the season, it is a colorful photo. You chose a very good point of view without any disturbing elements except that tree to the right but I believe it is on purpose. I also think the photo is a bit askew.
Very good work as usual.

Hello John,
You are the master of composition. The roof, shutters of this house are all appealing. Best regards, Danilo

Yes, beautiful colors, sharp and nice architecture from Naaldwijk. Lovely proverb...
I'm sure you've to do very few steps from that list.
Have a wonderful night
Hugs to both
Sorry, out of smilies...and sure for tomorrow

Hi John,

Bonita composición de esta hermosa arquitectura, me gusta mucho la textura creada para este motivo.

Saludos desde Barcelona ;-)


Picturesque colorful architecture, so unusual for my East-European eye...



Het lijkt wel een schilderijtje - weer erg prettige gepresenteerd.
John ook bedankt voor de Proverb TL style

Hi John
Did you got my mail? correction to the mail, cabin nr. 11112
This is a great shot. wonderful POV, good light, well presented, as always. Compliments.

Hi John,

Lovely shelter! . . I like the color that contrast one to another . . maroon against white . . fantastic . .
Great compo . .

How are you my friend? It's heavy raining in Jakarta at the moment and small twister in some areas that damages hundred houses , ,


John gewoon weer prachtig.
Ik denk erover om ook dit programma te instaleren.
Dan nodig ik Yolan en jou uit om bij mij te eten
en doen we het samen? Deze foto geeft echt de doorslag.
Ik vind al je foto's mooi maar inderdaad ga je nu een etage hoger met PS cs2
Complimentjes an knuffeltjes

Hi John,
I like this shot . . . there are many things going on here. The architecture is charming--I love the decorative chimney-type structures over the upper-level windows, the brick "eyebrows" over all the windows, the working shutters, the gabled roof, etc. All of the textures keep me looking, from the trees in the background to the one in the foreground, and everything in between. Nice colors and control of light.
Looks like you are having fun with your new program!
All the best,

Hi John :)

Nice shot ! I like the differents colors in your photograph.
Good job, keep going

merhaba arkadaşım John...
ne güzel renk ve detaylar...zevkli bir mimari ve bakımlı evler...eline sağlık, kadraj ve çerçeve harika..selam ve saygılar..

nice shot, and I see the tilt...I did a workshop and fixed it. I'm not real good with duplicating the frame, but you get the jest of it all. If you want to see it, send me an email!

Hi John,
This is a beautiful house in a autumn fall.
Yes, we can see the tilt. Often the perspective function (right button of the mouse) is not sufficient to correct it. I use then the distortion's function and that makes a good work!
Meilleures salutations! Annie

In an ideal world there would be no perspective nor lens distortion, John ;o).
This shot has both distortions... perspective as the plane of your sensor was not perpendicular to the ground, lens because you had to use a wide angle. The question is: do we need to bother and try straightening the shot and correcting the distortion?? IMO... yes. But I'm not even thinking about starting from a downsized image ;o)
So, the shot as it is: I checked out the verticals, and they seem to be pretty much perpendicular, but... it looks tilted. Must be a trick on the eye, caused by parallel horizontal lines: bottoms of the houses vs tops of the roofs. They are parallel, but not level... and that looks weird, to me at least.
I like the PoV you chose: it shows how the houses are placed (4 front doors here), and also how tranquil it is there. I also like how the trees in the back show that you didn't take this during the walk we had there in September ;o).

I really don't know how I missed this one! This looks like a perfect retirement home for me when I get old(er) :) All of the colors are beautiful and match so nicely. The building design is very nice!!! A very beautiful picture! TFS

Hi John,

Your photo reminds me of the first day of arrival, in the afternoon we visited this nice place. Very sharp, good detail, well balanced lighting and nice presentation.

Beautiful colors and details love the different textures in one building. great framing choice too. TFS

Hi John, perspectives are a pain at times. Just for the heck of it I ran the PSP straighten tool along the bottom level of the doors, even that achieved a bit but still left the chimneys tilted. All that aside, lovely colours and good detail. TFS,

Another nice and colourful house. I like the red shutters and the shingle roof.
Very european.
Well done! sis :)
