I just came back home from work and saw this new posting of yours. I had to make a comment right away. You see Vermeer is one of my favourite painter and I have seen quite a few of his work and in particular those two at the Rijksmuseum.

Quite an interesting composition with the triangle formed by the visitors and the two paintings on the wall. It is interesting that one of them seems to wonder what she is doing there as she is not looking at the painting but somewhere else. Rich colours with good details on the paintings. Certainly an interesting way to present a visit to the museum. Well done!

I very much enjoy your composition here, Huub, I think it's creative and original. Nice how you focussed on the man in between the paintings :-). The flowers of the wall paper add an interesting detail to the composition, as well as the fact that the two ladies are wearing something white, whereas the man in the centre is in black... :-)

Vermeer n'as pas pris une ride, il reste le témoin d'une époque révolue, mais touche chaque nouvelle génération par tant de beauté picturale …
Chapeau Huub pour celle-ci, je sais qu’il est très difficile de prendre des clichés dans la plupart des musées de par le monde … Mais vous avez réussi avec l’autorisation ou avec de la chance une jolie composition pleine de vie …
Merci pour ce savoureux partage !!!

Good movement in the person on the left counter-balancing the stillness of the other two people and the paintings, nicely composed a serene image

Hello Huub,

Nice piece of holiday work.In those day's it took more time to make a picture!

I think that you should cut the left part. Now you try to focus on two things.
Also the colours, because of the artificial light always gives a yellow effect.
Just for you I made a workshop to see what the effect is. Have a look here.


Hallo Hubertus
very nice photo and idea ..the two best of
good old Johannes Vermeer ..Melkmeisje
(milk maiden ? ) and the world famous
'' Straatje van Vermeer'' ( little street of Vermeer ) than it looks as if the girl in middle, since she is unsharp .. not made up her mind wich of the two is best (*_*)..Clever shot
meastro !!

I also saw the idea of Ninix (Henk ) and added comment there ..
Good work boys !! You two should start a TV program ..( make me penningmeester.. haha )

Compliment to both


Hoi Huub
Not to long ago I was in the Rijksmuseum also

This is sooo moooiiii !
Goed gedaan

Very nice shot inside a museum! I like the work of Johannes Vermeer. He is one of the painter who fully understands lighting. I saw the workshop of Ninix. I think it is very imaginative and cutting off the other painting gives more importance to his more popular work. I think the title is "Cleaning Woman" Very well seen.


I like the composition here. Vermeer (one of my favorite) would probably chuckle at this.

A fantastic capture of a museum (and this IS a mesuem:-)). Nice light, nice motion and the painting with the Melkmeisje, nice !
Sometimes I think, are people really interested in paintings or are they walking there to be an interesting person....

Makes one look again at these great paintings.
