[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In my previous post, I mentioned that it was a cloudy day, and that I forgot to reset my camera from the -1EV. Well, this is the reason why.

This day, I watched a storm develop over the mountains and in the evening I made severall photos of the beautiful colored sky and ominous looking cloud formation. Most of the photos I made are posted on my TrekNature site, but I wanted to show you a few too.

Tech Talk: Shot in RAW with -1.3EV and converted to JPEG. No changes made to white balance or colors. Just a tad more contrast and shrapness.

Hello Niek,
a lovely landscape. The colors and the light is outstanding. Lovely compositon.

HI Niek,
it's an interesting light here, I realy don't know if it's at the day or at sunrise - warm colours and a quiet atmosphere, that's beautiful, thanks

This is a fine capture Niek,
The colours are superb. excellent sharpness and detail

TFS. have a great weekend.

Schitterende sfeervolle opname Niek.

You sure know how to catch a valuable moment with such a beautiful light.

Interesting how a little mistake can turn out to your advantage! Actually, I always under-expose when shooting around sunrise or sunset... Nice composition, with the vista opening up in the middle, framed by the trees on both sides. Well done!

Great nature shot you caught the granduer style and might of the west!

You captured the nice glow of evening here Niek. I can't tell from your note whether this was intentionally underexposed or not. It does feel a little darker than I imagine the scene would have been. It is nice though. Thanks for sharing it.

Evelynn : )

Hi Niek,
This mistake gives a very special mood to this photo. In particular, to the sky. I like it very much because that points out to me the images of old encyclopaedia where we learn the world before seeing it. Very well done! Annie

points tomorrow

Beautiful and warm atmosphere. Well senn and well shown. Great composition. Thanks.


Hi Niek, well your -1 EV brings a very nice and special mood to the beautiful landscape.

Very good perspective and good dimensions with the fg and the mountains.

Great work! Yan :)

Hello Niek,
This is a fine composition, where the two groups of trees are nicely used for framing our view to the mountains in a distance!
Good contrasty creation in this well balanced composition!

Hi Niek,
I like the overall colour of this photo. The muted colours gives the image someting special.
Well done.

Love the strange orangje color over the picture. It is very weird. But I like it and I must say very well done. Picture is very sharp and composition is marvelous.

Another very beautiful one Niek. Excellent mood and great feeling of distance/scale.

Well done
Best regards Daniel :)

Ahh very nice Niek! Love the amber tones! Smiley's tomorrow!

Hello Niek...it has only been in the last week or so that my camera has been set to anything but Auto. I have been playing with EV and I am astounded at the difference that alone can make. Delightful landscape, beautiful light and shadow. TFS,
Many thanks for your comment on

I am just sorry that I cannot give you a full view of the mill but modern buildings surround it.
