Still too busy at work to get out at the moment, so another older shot from a few years ago:

The cloud, flock and lone bird make it stand out from otherwise ubiquitous windmills. Great color too. And, with the horizon in the middle, no perspective distortion ;)

The photo is very clean with vibrant colors, great sky and impeccable framing but the birds (ducks?) are the the key element.

This is pure Kitsch, but very well mastered. I am fond of it :)

Perfect photo! The composition, the lighting, the bird in the foreground and the ones flying and  the clouds, absolutely beautiful.

This is pure Kitsch...

I guess I myself have been doing kitsch for so long that I forgot that's what it is ;)

 :o Oh, this is so great. A mass-outing. I'm not alone with my hidden shame! A couple of well skilled photographers confess to kitsch. I will preserve this thread until I've passed.

Thanks all.

Kitsch takes a lot of work to produce. To finally get that image required 12 trips to the same place over a period of 3-4 months. With it being a 3 hour round trip, there was a lot of patience and practice that finally resulted in that photograph.

Having produced that one, I haven't been back. I don't think I can improve on it further.

Even the first windmill's blades lend themselves to the perspective. Well done. Love the birds.

Kitsch or not, I don't care, I mean how many of us would walk past this photographic opportunity?

Definitely a potential magazine front cover I think. The vibrant colours, content, framing and reflections etc, all fit together nicely and make this image a very pleasant thing to look at indeed ;D

A magazine cover? I suppose someone would splash titles & the like over it. I'd just put a simple line underneath a poster-sized print - "Visit the Netherlands". That would do it.

A simple "Come." would be enough. It's obvious that you're not invited to come to Scotland. ;D
