Waiting for the parade

Small boat in the Noordzeekanaal (North Sea canal) near Amsterdam are waiting for the sail-in parade of the ships of the Sail 2010 event hold this week in Amsterdam.

The sun was hiding for a short moment and created a wonderful scene. Did some PP work on saturation (increased red and yellow colours) and increased contrast. Further PP work: adjustment of level and curves, resized and sharpened, add frame.

Hello Hans ,
Very nice picture , with an amazing colour contrast between the sky and th see . Congratulations ! Ernest.

Nice shot Hans - great use of silhouette and certainly lots to look at! The more pano crop works well too with these subjects. I may be tempted to go for an even tighter crop from the top, but that would lose the 'moody' cloud of course!


it is quite dramatic. almost like there is going to be an impending invasion. the way you made the pp almost reminds me of a spy mission. where I am looking inside a peroscope from a submarine to see if the enemy is approaching! my imagination is getting wilder as I type. pardon me.

Wow, the moment is wonderful, Hans, I love the silver-shining water and all the silhuettes, also the angry sky is fascinating.
Beautiful shot, I like it so much, thanks.
Warm regards

WOW! This is STUNNING Hans! I love the artistic value of this shot! It feels a little tilted to me, but you know how crooked I am! haha! LOVE the sky and how intense the color is! B-) I like this style of framing too!

like a old painting, i like grey metallic reflection,

thanks Hans

Hi Hans,
WoW! I like this picture with the great reflection on water, great clouds in the sky well presented with silhouettes of the boat..and the port of Noordzeekanaal,
