Great beautiful photo, real good details, brilliant colors, superb POV, it is very good. Compliments and TFS.
Ben op dit moment een beetje met uitsneden aan het experimenteren.
Dacht dat dit op jou foto ook van toepassing kon zijn.
Zie resultaat in WS

Wonderful ancient feeling buildings .. Their restful meditative quality is amplified by the tone, the water, and the "V" of the composition. Very nice.

Nice warm colors in the stones and on the roofs. Nice point of view on the canal and with the church in the background. Well done.

Very nice POV and well composed. The lighting is nice and mellow and the colors natural. The DOF, detail and sharpness very good.
I agree with your note that TL is more than only pictures, friendships were made and our common hobby was enjoyed.

Hurrah for Dingo - I prefer a smaller frame too Hans - that way we can see more of the view.
But each to their own...
It's a lovely view of Brugge - But I find it so strange to see the water lapping the buildings. You should be pleased with this. Great result.

merhaba myfriend hans...
verynice composition and shot..super pov..nice city...selamlar
Well, cheers Hans! I don't think my view on photography is that different from yours, but we definitely disagree about how a picture should be framed, or what the function of a frame actually is. On TL I usually find big frames distracting. Moreover, the bigger the frame the less pixels you've left for showing what you want to show: the actual picture.
I also told you that in the end I never let a frame influence my appreciation of a photo; I look beyond it.
This being said, I like the view on Brugge which you present here. Excellent DoF, no perspective distortion so technically it's almost perfect. Almost... because the sunny 16 rule has one disadvantage: f16 is a small enough aperture to bring out dust on the sensor, if present. Well Hans, you'd better start cleaning ;o).
Also, maybe you could have used the highlight tool in PS to make the white building in the right a bit less bright. It's not disturbing though.
Reading or hearing different opinions about photography in general, and especially about your own work, makes us grow... and that is what TL is about, for me at least. Then, if by chance we meet each other, that's a nice side-effect ;o). And hey... wouldn't life be boring if everybody had the same taste? LOL

Hi Hans, this is postcard quality and the colours are perfect here. Sorry for Dingo in this ws, as they are oversaturated on my screen, this must be why sometimes, people think that my colours are not saturated enough :))
Your pov is very well done, great definition, and perfect composition.
And I prefer this kind of frame but hey, this is not important I think, different tastes for different folks :))
Very very well done! Take care, Yan :)
Ps: many thx for your great comment on "Joffre Lakes, Upper Lake of the 3 Lakes" and for your great support to help with the map. I am very happy to know how to make it work now.
BTW, if we had visited on the same year we might have seen each other ;)

Fantastic work Hans, love to see a million ancient bricks in the walls of those houses.
This one could not go wrong whichever way you present it, in a big black frame or with a small white frame!
TFS the sentiment and the picture,

Hello Hans, great shot of this beautiful town. Well composed, good light and exposure. Maybe a bit too much sharpening ? Anyway, well done my friend. Thanks,
Nu eens zonder je altijd speciale frame,waardoor deze onwijze foto van die machtige stad nog mooier tot zijn recht komt.
Zou je best eens vaker mogen doen Hans!

Goed vastgelegd Hans !
Ik moet zeggen dat ik zo'n royaal frame toch wel kan waarderen. Als ik doorclick naar die andere, en dan hier weer terugkom, dan vind ik déze een beetje kaal. Sowieso vind ik die andere wat mooier door die spiegeling in het water.

I had wanted to go back and catch some of your Brugge shots; they are all very good. Looks like a fascinating place for a photographer . . . you could stand in one place and take pictures all day, and as you pointed out, they'd be different from someone else's standing next to you!
