...in Veere. One of the few sunny days we've had this summer in the Low Lands... Of course Ann, Dingo (the dog) and me hurried towards Zeeland to visit a couple of towns and cities we didn't get to discover before.

One of the pleasant surprises we had was Veere. A cosy, for tourists very interesting place with a nice yachting harbour, a very large lake and some beautiful buildings.

I spotted the windmill when I was walking along the quay, and I immediately liked this compo that includes some of the flowers in a garden in front of one of the houses.

Tech talk

In-camera compo with a smaller aperture to get a large DoF.

As usual, adjustment layers for levels and curves. Then I decided to leave out the curves layer. Just a slight tweak in levels, completed with a wee bit of shadows (0) and Highlights(10).
Photographing a white subject in a mixed colour environment and bright sunlight is prone to get you some overexposure...

Very beautiful with all these flowers!! A very summerly photo! Today it was a good day too, so did you go anywhere????

I would cropp it a little bit more at the top. But thats my opinion....:)

Well done, Frank. Mooi gedaan!


O ja - stokrozen - en zelf nog een witte molen in de BG.

Frank dit is echt het beeld dat ik heb van de provincie Zeeland (we hebben jaren in Hulst gewoond).

Erg mooi gedaan met maar n klein wolkje aan de lucht.


Hi Frank,
Mooie heldere plaat, perfecte belichting waarbij het wit van de molen prachtig afsteekt tegen de blauwe lucht. Ook de stokrozen op de voorgrond maken het een interessante foto. De bome vormen een mooi natuurlijk kader. Pracht inzending Frank, echt genieten!

Hi, I was just reading your intro. which I found very interesting and helpful as well. I agree with so much of what you've said. A very beautiful scene today. Nice composition with the flowers in the fg. The lighting and colors are excellent and the trees frame the windmill nicely. When I see pictures like this it really makes me wish I was right there. TFS and have a happy day!

" Fris " dat was m'n eerste gedacht en daar blijf ik bij. :-)
Vind dat er nog wel wat doortekening in het wit van de molen zit ( rechts onder ).
Weet niet of je er meer contrast kan uithalen maar,
zelf zou ik het niet doen.

En " but " ( omdat ik moet )
dat afgesneden wolkje links, dat had ik laten verdwijnen
Juist omdat de rest mooi blauw is, valt het op :
een aandachtspunt dat er zeker niet hoeft te zijn.
Mijn idee ...


Good morning Frank,
This is a wonderful capture and beautifully presented. Great color and i love the blue sky background.

Hi Frank,
Beautiful capture and nice colours...
Lovely shot of a nice wind mil..
Well done my friend.tfs.

Hi Frank,
Fabulous view from the garden, a real gift to a photographer... You framed the windmill excellently with the flowers and trees, the composition's eye-catching. Beside it, everything's sharp, colours are nice and the exposure is the most proper possible. I'm a little surprised this superb photo only deserved a handful of comments. I like the image very much, congratulations and thanks for sharing.
Best regards, Lszl
