Were the Gauntlets are found

Smurfie is to late for her "fight" with me (scared?) So here my post of today, the Castle of Muiden or The Muiderslot as it is named in Dutch. Here Smurfie can find her Gauntlet...

Anyway on last Saturday a gorgeous day brought me to this castle. Here an impression. I removed for Jan Korbee a spotlight which would be found anoying, also covered in the background a modern house with trees (clone tool used)
Slight increase of brihtness and contrast. No saturation adjustment.

P.S. My Gauntlet for Smurfie is "Eye"

Hello Hans!

Wonderful colours and good light!
Best regards

Hello Hans! Very interesting castle. Perfect perspective, ideal composition. Very good capture. Marvelous effect. Good luck!

Morning Hansie

Haha my friend very good, a lovely POV here well balanced with excellent details, good lighting and colour. Meat black frame contrasts and suits the image well.

Hmm what luck I had prepared a shot that takes up the gauntlet today then?

Please add a note at the bottom of your posting to give me a clue for tomorrow ;-)

TFS kind regards Smurfie

hee.. wat hebbie met die grote witte schotel gedaan die aan de zijmuur rechts is bevestigd? ook gecloned? Mijn foto is van een veel lager punt geschoten dan deze van jou, maar de schotel is goed te zien!

:-) een prachtige opname van het Muiderslot... Het moet wel een heerlijke dag zijn geweest...zo zonnig, lekker warm en zo! ahahahahahahahaha
Eerlijk gezegd, vind ik het iets hogere standpunt van jou mooier dan die van mij...

Hi
What a fine photo.
Very pleasant view. Well composed picture with great contrast and sharpness. Good PP.
Bravo,SASO

Hello Hans,

A great pov using many lines (the hedges, the path, the shrubs) to guide our eyes to the castle. The details are superbly sharp, and the colours are lovely.

Perhaps the border is a little over-powering but that is just a personal opinion.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hello Hans
Beautiful and the framing is an excellent choice,
Vicky

Bonjour Hans,
Alors là, merci de nous proposer ce joli château d'époque médiévale aprés celle de l'aigle, il est splendide, les couleurs et contrastes sont magnifiques, le ciel bleu le fait bien ressortir!
Encore un grand Merci Hans!
Amitiés
Odile

Hoi Hans.
Had je die tuin voor mij ook wel aan kunnen passen.
Mooi grasveld en een lekker zwembad met een barretje er bij ?
Of vanaf de ophaal brug een duikplank, zodat je een rondje om het kasteel door de gracht kan zwemmen.
Met een beetje pp work moet dat te doen zijn, toch ?
Maare..Het staat er mooi op. Zeker weten dt het nu in prijs gestegen is.
Groeten van Jan

Hi Hans,
Nice castle my friend, I'm sure you don't need to run and hide from Smurfie behind your big wooden gate though LOL.
Good colours and details though I might have cropped the small wooden fence from the bottom though, nice work my friend.
Well done
Regards Andy

Hoi Hans,

composition are wonderful.Well done my friend.TFS.

Hoi Hans,

Erg massief! Lekker natuurlijk in de toning.
Ze mogen wel eens een nieuwe vlag kopen, want de kleuren zijn door de zon wel erg on-Nederlands geworden ;-).

Groeten! Dennis

Ciao Hans, great view of splendid castle with fantastic colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Ziet er inderdaad een mooi kasteel -of beter, burcht- uit, Hans. Is het ook bemeubeld?
Qua cloning zie ik niets mis, ik zou ook de paden aan de linkerkant weghalen en de heldere streep onderaan de bomen. Rechts staat er nog een paal in de weg te staan, er vlakbij zijn 2 heldere plekjes die wat storen...
Mooi overzicht wel. TFS

Hoi Hans,
Mooie plaat van dit schuurke. Mooie lucht er boven. Technisch picobello. Het blijft een mooi stukje antiek .....
groeten,
Joop!
