Typical Dutch

Blue sky, green grass, a swan and a mill....can it be more "typical Dutch"? Took this picture in the Zuiderzee museum the open air museum in Enkhuizen at the coast of the former 'South Sea' in Dutch Zuiderzee which is now a lake called IJsselmeer.

Anyway the swan wasn't really cooperative and he swam away when he observed me despite this counteract I managed to get him in view together with the mill.

I can't remember why I used such odd camera setting f/11 and 1/250 sec would have been more appropriate, anyway for some reason this worked too....or do you disagree?

PP work: adjusted levels and curves, removed some dust spots, straighten the horizon, cropped (minor) removed some annoying objects with clone tool, resized, sharpened and add frame.

Fantastique captage de moulin avec ces belles ailes, un jeu d'ombres et lumières, en plsu le cygne sur le plan d'eau, quel cadrage parfait, quel bel ensemble équilibré splendide.

Bravo et amitié

Hi Hans,
Perfect postcard from Holland.
Beautiful composition with an excellent balance of elements, until the duck co.
I agree, the photographic technique resulted very well liked.
Well, have a great weekend.


He Hans,

Inderdaad een lekker Hollands plaatje. Een mooi polderlandschap met de molen en de zwaan op de voorgrond.

nice scene, wow, awesome colors and great sharpness, well done, this is really nice, seems sharp from back to front and the moving swan is sharp too with a little sunlight on him so your setting work for me!
