The harbour of the city of Hoorn in Holland.
From here ships went all over the world for the world's first multi-national, the V.O.C.(United East-Indian Company). This company made lots of money by trading.

Hi Joop,
That's a very sharp capture of this colorful harbor. Splendid houses on one side and a lovely tree to balance. The reflection in the water is superb. Good light management and a dramatic sky to contrast with the warmth of the buildings.
My best wishes for a Happy New Year.

Hi Joop,
Beautiful scenery perfect for a wall painting!
The water surface is like a mirror reflecting the lovely colors of the houses. Marvellous sharpness and POV.

Hi Joop

Wonderful reflections with good color saturation & superb warm cold color contrasts such as the orange at right against the blue sky. That big tree at left must be a popular place to sit under on a hot sunny day! Tfs!

Hi Joop, good lighting, interesting reflections, good foreground material has made for a good scene.
Goed gedaan.

Hello Joop, a lovely scene from the Netherlands.
The shapes and colours of the harbourside buildings are very attractive, and their reflections add to the shot.
Good DoF.
The cloudy blue sky is the perfect bg.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Bonjour Joop,
Superbe cliché, une grande profondeur de champs qui mène le regard vers le fond en prenant le cours d'eau joliment agrémenté par de belles embarcations...
Les couleurs sont splendides, une belle lumière inonde la scène, bref, du joli travail ....
Tous mes meilleurs voeux pour l'année 2012!!!!!

Hi Joop,

Informative NOTE takes me back to the dark ages of Indian sub-continent when the traders came and brought a few armed personal for the protection of their goods as later that changed into an army and captured all India, without doubt they looted the GOLDEN sparrow. Sorry it is a history that we know about East India Company.
This is a beautiful place and well shot but I can see a flare in the center on the clock tower and the right side buildings, it is well composed beside all these mistakes, TFS.
Happy New Year and greetings for the season.


een absolute schoonheid
