Hi Hans - how you doing?

Nice abstract - rich colour and a nice close-up composition with diagonals, triangles and interest. All helped by the black frame which sets off the yellow perfectly.

Hi Hans,
You created a whole geometrical composition with this yellow umbrella from underneath!
Nice lines crossing and superb yellow tones dominating the presentation.
A nice tight thick black frame, but I prefer it without the title on.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hoi Hans,
Niet een echt typische Noorwegen foto, maar grafisch erg mooi. Lekker strak helder en scherp. Dat je net alles een beetje scheef hebt gezet maakt de foto alleen maar mooier.

Hello HAns

A wonderful capture of the simple. A very sharp image. Nice framing and fonts.

WOW Hans this is brilliant! I love the color and clarity of this shot! The black frame makes it pop out even MORE! Really beautiful work!

Good Morning Hans,

Black and yellow are great friends and make the most pleasing combination!
Your composition of the umbrella struts is quite outstanding and looks great against the subdued light permeating the fabric.
The complementary border is an important part of the whole.

Have a good Sunday,
Bev :-)

He Hans, volgens mij ben je in de details gaan zitten! Mooie abstracte kleuren en het frame past er helemaal bij!
Mooie lijnen en nét een beetje scheef! Heel goed!


Hi Hans

I'll give this one 9/10 I think ... just for personal reasons.

The photograph itself is great - simple, a study of hues within a single colour, light shade and pattern. The frame is good, the strong wide black is essential I think to make the most of the shot, and separate it from the colours of the TL background.

Really my only 'but' is the title. To me it's unnecessary and distracting.

It's minor though, this shot is great. :)
