Tribute to mr.David Gumprich(refugee),a very skilled and creative member from Tasmania-Australia.
David is a specialist in creating early-morning,foggy moods around and on the water,something myself I really like to do now and then....
Theres always a certain silence and calmness in his pictures,like here on a chilly,cold November morning in Spaarndam,a small hamlet near Haarlem.

Hi Jan,
You certainly managed to reach an early-morning mood in this image. Not foggy, but clear.
Very nice compo and colors.
Funny that there is a bird on every ... uhhh .... paal.
Great job done.

Hi, really nice composition and tones, the framing showing a lot of water adds to the calmness atmosphere, and funny the birds on each post

Hola Jan,
interesante trabajo y tonos
siluetas y buena composición,
saludos amigo.

Thank you very much for the compliments Jan. LOvely colours in the image which has been well composed. Good repetitions and I particularly like the detail in the shaded distance. Well cropped and framed and nice to see that even in the Netherlands each post has a bird.

Wonderfully elegant and simple Jan, and full atmosphere and mood.
Love the reflected colors of light and ripples in the water.
Well done.
- Vincent

A nice capture of these birds perched on the poles in the pre-sun-rise lights.
A very elegant shot.

ciao Jan..
an excellent reflection.. with cool tones.. wonderful indeed! bravo!!
ciao Marco

Hello Jan,

It's a beautiful and very well done composition!
I like the colors, the lightness, the contrast, the frame!
A great gift to our friend David!
Congratulations and TFS,

on monday

Hello Korbee kind of

In fact there´s a special mood in this Kind of take. The birds are really great.

My regards


Hi Jan,

Dat is prachtig!! Die vijf beesten op een rijtje, echt perfect!
Hele mooie softe, gouden reflecties. Het valt me nog niet eens op dat er geen lucht in de compositie zit. :-)


Really nice work here for David, the Master of Fog! He will love this one! Excellent work Jan! Superb silhouettes here, love the warmth of the shot!

Hello Jan,

Excellent peaceful atmosphere and splendid color tones, well composed photo with a very good perspective. TFS

He, jan.
Ben je an het klonen geweest ?
Schitterende foto.!
Als het nu nog wat meer op de voorgrond had gestaan had je 10 punten gekregen
Oke, een vette 9 dan.!
Groeten van Jan

Wat een gvoel in deze opname. Een waardering van de hoogste graad. Topper.

Well seen Jan, nice mood and repetition. It's calm yes, but also there is the waiting of something to happen.

Fantastisch Jan - inderdaad die speciale sfeer, net ald David die vaak weet vast te leggen. Waarom is deze zo lang in het archief blijven liggen - je hebt gewoon teveel goede foto's. Wat leuk dat je al die vogels voor je liet poseren.
Ja, puur genieten.


The bird seems to find the most suitable place to take a rest : )The ambience is so peaceful and harmonic!A very moody photo!

Superb work, perfect dedication for David !


I could not guess what exactly this was, but I had to enlarge it because I admire David Grumprich too. And it was until I opened it, that I could appreciate this beautiful, peaceful, scene. Lovely tones of colors. TFS


Hello Jan,
What kind of an arrangement did you manage to make with these birds to get them all to perch in a line like this?
Lovely warmth, great silhouettes.
Elegant composition.
Good job!

Great tribute to our member David:):):) and what a picture!!!!
Absolutely great composition - like from best-selling photo album!!!
Greetings - tom

I'm not a morning person myself, but images like this are definitely worth to get up early in the morning. Those birds sitting on the posts are incredible. It's as if they're glued there, as a permanent part of the scenery. :)))
Very well composed, excellent sharpness with sublime colors and atmosphere!
Diana :)

nice two tone colors.not much elements but effective in composition.good sharpness present all elements and texture very well.the strong vertical lines of pole and boat with horizontal line from water surface gives good sense of calm and silence as you say.I like bird on each pole,they make this shot more lovely :)

Nice to know you know Refugee.
Well timed. The birds create that "end of day" feeling. Nice mood.
