Dutch landscapes - no tulips or mills though
« on: June 10, 2006, 03:26:02 PM »

Hi all,

I just put a couple of new portfolios on my site with landscape photos of the Netherlands. Not the well known polders, tulip fields or wind mills, but some other rural parts:

Betuwe and central Drente.

I hope you enjoy - and comments welcome!

Thanks for posting your link. Zwiggelte 3 gets my vote as well. I was also interested in the thumbnail of Eck en Wiel 21, vechtende fazanten, because of the composition and the texture of the grass, but the full preview showed a cropped/panorama?

I like the tonal and color transitions in Eck en Wiel 2--it gives a nice peaceful feeling.  Both Zwiggelte 1 and 3 have very nice graphic qualities and composition.  Geelbroek 4 also has a very nice feeling.  Thanks for posting.

Thanks for your kind comments!

I decided to show the whole thumbnail, even if the real photograph is cropped. Do you think I should do otherwise?

Here is are the fighting pheasants again, uncropped:

I like the uncropped version. The curve of the fence posts is quite nice.

Nice images. Thanks for sharing them.

Thanks for posting the whole image. I prefer the uncropped version with the expanse of textural grass and the beautiful curve of the fence. I would reconsider - and have the 'real' photograph to be the uncropped version if it were me.

I changed the pheasant picture into the uncropped one (democracy is great, isn't it  

I also added a new portfolio: Bovenpolder, the River Rhine's outer marches near Amerongen

I hope you enjoy!

Today I addes some more portfolios (sooner than I dared to hope   ).

By the way - looking at all those images, scanned and worked on in photoshop, I feel a deep urge for buying a digital back for my Rollei. No more scanning and less postproduction, with more accurate results.

You can find the portfolios here!
