Hello John nice location, I think the two posts are just a bit to prominent in the composition if they were not so close might have worked better but idea is good nice colours considering its a dull day tfs rgds Necip.

Hi John
Above all, these are beautiful colours. The good composition and the super technique.

Nice shot my friend!Well done!

Hi John,

Very nice view framed by the gate entrance. I like the colors, too and the composition is very good even if the sky was covered.

Best Regards,

Looks like a wet day, but I love the contrast of colors against the neutral sky. Somehow, the lush green seems to pop out even more on an overcast day.

He John,

Je bent lekker aktief met de Trekkers. De foto's kunnen zo in de touristenfolders, een geweldige Hollandpromotie.

Blijven knippen mijn vriend zolang als je kunt! (valtie?)

Hi John

I like the triangle formed by the 2 white posts & the windmill. A superb pov with excellent colour, lighting & sharpness. Tfs!

Hi John,
A beautiful shot with deep color and sharp details . . . nice with the gray sky and grasses bending in the wind.
A quick note from Charleston, SC, where our ship has been delayed due to a medical rescue, mechanical problems, and high seas! We are enjoying the adventure.

Hi John,
Nicely framed with this fence in foreground.
Typical dutch image with a typical sky above it. ;-)

superb PoV, John!
Great colours and excellent details

Hoi John,

Hey, wat leuk om bij jou ook een molen te zien (heb vandaag zelf de molens van Kinderdijk bezocht).
Wat een goed idee om het hek als een frame te gebruiken, kleuren zijn mooi en ik vind dit een prachtig Hollandse foto.
Heb je WS ook bekeken, een gezellig stelletje bij elkaar leek me zo :-)

Groetjes, Nel

A really wonderful pov. Beautiful colors and details and a place that is definately on my to see list! TFs

I would've cropped the fence on the right (keep the pillar only) to descentrate the compo but I like this dutch postcard anyway.


Hé lekker doorkijkje heb je gezien - heb ik totaal gemist. John, dat is het leuke als je allemaal ergens fotografeert, dat iederéén wat anders ziet. Goede lucht. O ja, wat ik zo prettig vind van de WS is dat het zelf jou overkomt dat de lucht OE is - nou dan kan ik opgelucht ademhalen als het mij nog steeds af en toe gebeurt.

Hi John,
Absolutely great POV - windmill between the gates. Light conditions were difficult, but You managed to capture the colors with optimal contrast - this is what's called professionalism, isn't it? :)
Everything's great except for the frame (I know it's personal...), a narrow-white - thick-black one would be by my opinion better, but the photo itself is absolutely excellent. Congrats and tfs. Best regards, szervusz, László

Hi John :)
Wow ! Splendid capture through the gate ! Nice colours and heavy sky. Good perspective and interesting note and WS, thanks my friend :)

Hello Sir John,

Well the wind mills are the true identifier of Netherlands and in this frame the NL is seen is its true sense. A beautiful image my friend, well done.

Thanks for sharing this shot.
