Summer reflections in Zandvoort

Saw this building in Zandvoort, while strolling through the city together with Bianca and Tjeerd, while making pictures. Bianca "stole" already "my" picture of the white orange houses, hopefully she hadn't this one in mind. I was lucky with the soaring gull.

This building, a theater and cinema, was build in 1991 and is designed by Sjoerd Soeters.

It's an glorious and cheerful picture, thats because I'm loking forward to meet Sweety and her family oncoming weekend in Market Harborough (UK), I meet her on my first "TL-birthday" so I think we are going to celebrate that!


Shot in RAW, adjusted contrast and saturation increased saturation and blue tones. Cropped in perspective. Changed from 16-bit channel to 8-bit. Add frame and text. Transferred and resized for TL.

Image details:
ISO: 200
Metering: Matrix
Shutter: 1/250
Aperture: f/8
White Balance: Auto
Focal length: 28mm

Hello Hans,

CONGRATULATIONS for 200th post of Netherlands. A beautiful building which has been designed artistically. The hoisting flag perspective of the architecture along with NL color scheme is looking great. Such a brilliant presentation my friend, well done.

Thanks for sharing this image.

Wonderful color! Nice artistic shot here! Congratulations on your meeting new folks! TL folks are the best! This is a very nice shot Hans! Nice and clear!

Het toppunt van goedkope,ordinaire lelijkheid(zandvoort op zijn plepst) in een prachtig vaatje gegoten,de vogel is super getimed.
Knap werk Hans.

De heimwee borrelt rustig op... Grappig, kijkend naar een foto van Zandvoort luister ik op de laptop naar Rowwen Heze en Nynke Laverman in duet, in Sumatra...
Soeters, dat is een zeer limburgse naam... Heb even gezocht, maar hij is van Ameland!
Mooie plaat!

Groeten, Dennis

Nice capture. Good perspective, sharpness and details.
Interesting architecture.

Hi Hans,Wonderful shot and compo,Well captured and presented.well done.tfs.

Hi Han,
Nice bright vivid colors with such sharp detail. Good POV choice. The bird in the sky is a nice touch. TFS Julie

Hi Hans,
where in Zandvoort have you found these Oranges? I know a place where you can make games going down the pedestrian-area than in the middle turning left - is it there? Anyway - I love the colours and the gull is a perfect bonus here.
Thanks and greetings

Ik ben blij dat we zoiets in BelgiŽ nog niet doen, Hans: een dakstructuur in de vorm van een vlag. We hebben hier al genoeg gekke toestanden ;o).
't Geeft wel een mooi contrast met die perfect blauwe lucht, dat moet ik toegeven.

Hi Hans :o)
Great shot ! Original architecture with great colours, I like that ! Great POV ... sky, bird, tree, very well seen :o)
And as usual, excellent frame :o)
