[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Time for another photo from my trip through the backyard of Hans. Maybe you've already seen this windmill captured by Hans, but here you can see my version.

This windmill was build 1879 and restored in 1972 and 1991. The name 'De Hommel'(Bumblebee)was given to this mill in 1972 by Mr. C. Krijts sr. because of the short thick body. Historically this is not correct because the polder board uses the name 'Kleine Molen' (small mill) in its official documents. The latter is more obvious, because the mill was draining the Small Polder.

Hi Niek

Wonderful horizontal layering of the clouds in this marvellous big sky shot, with the windmill at left providing a superb focal point. Excellent sharpness & framing. Tfs!

Hi Niek,

hjere, I especially like the immense mood int the capture. The traditional dutch windmill looks great, caught with great sharpness and from a nice POV. An interesting E-W pattern of the the clouds.
Very well seen!

Have a nice weekend.


Hi Niek,
Are you sure this is not....a painting?
Great,very great indeed !!!

Hi, Niek. Well composed scene with excellent metering, colors and perspective. The windmill looks wonderful and thanks for the beautiful note. Cheers and TFS.

Wonderful typical dutch landscape!

Buen paisaje excelente color , luz y encuadre una fantastica composicion ,aunque esta levemente inclinado como puede verse en el horizonte se cae un poco hacia la izquierda
gracias por el consejo el fondo esta retocado porque en el original es del zoo y hay una pared de ladrillos de diferentes colores y algun arbol,siento haberme dejado algun trozo de hoja

un saludo
buen fin de semana

Hi Hans,
This is a nice image, something you would find on a jigsaw puzzle, the image is pin sharp and the colours are crisp, the lovely blue sky is broken with a scattering of clouds and the windmill being the main focal point is sharp and lots of detail. This is a nice photograph to relax to. TFS

Hello Niet,
Such a classic Dutch landscape scene with pinsharp detailing and a lovely composition.
The clouds add a lot to the quality of the shot.
Nicely done! Joni

Hi Neik

Nice shot of this old windmill.
Well composed, like the shadow on the windmill and the touch of colour from the boat on the water.
Lovely sky.

Regards Derek

Hoi Niek,
Mooie heldere plaat geworden Niek, past helemaal bij de sfeer van die middag. De prachtige typische Hollandse bewolking maakt het een schitterende plaat!

Hi Niek,
I thought I recognised this scenery,I believe there was a single rower in Han's image.
This is a beautiful & tranquill location & you have captured all of that with this image.I like your POV ,the placement of the windmill is perfect.I wondered if the cloning out of the white building, far right, would be a + or a -?

Hi Niek,
Thank letting me know that where my thread should be placed.
I have a great pleasure enjoying this picture of yours. Wonderful composition and everything is in details. The colour of the sky and the slight reflection in the water is amazing. Thank for sharing
