This is a cool shot Hansie!! It looks as though the RED ball is in motion, which adds depth to the shot. SUPER sharp, excellent details on the building! F11 was a great choice! I like it!

It's a really great shot to present this anglo-saxon (?) game. Your exposition is very sharp and detailed, the colours have high saturation. Good action (but this time a bit slow motion:)) shot with beautiful building in the background. TFS.

very good scene, very dynamic photos, but somehow you have too much green tone that can be seen in the sky, try to fix a little in Photoshop. I like the texture of clouds.

hi, hansie baby.
very nicely composed image.
the strength of the colours brings out the warmth of the day.
a very quaint, 'english' scene. (it would be were it not for the tree ferns).

Dear Han, hope you are doing good! What a bright and clear shot here. Looks very crisp. The building is looking charming with all it's bright and lively color and architecture. And yes, adding two ladies while playing was a great idea!!
Have A Wonderful Time!

A great old building for photography, think I have one of this somewhere here in my gallery...when Janice, Pam and I had the girls weekend away in Rotorua...nicely composed, and great natural colours.

I just love this building. Always so photogenic, and the crochet players might have understood you if you'd shouted it in Maori Hans.
It is a beautiful place to wander around. Did you get to the lakeside and see all the bird-life - ducks, shags, coots, etc?
I'm hoping to go back there this April with Chantelle and the little girls.

Mooier kon je het hier niet maken.
Alles op zijn plaats. Scherpte, kleuren, compositie.
Enigste krietiek, daar hadden een paar modellen van 'Rew' in moeten staan, toch ? haha
When you yelled 'Go all Blacks go', see maybe thought, your colorblind ???
Groeten uit Bergen op Zoom, nog steeds griep.!

I can imagine the thought process of the ladies "Go All Blacks? Can't he see we're wearing white?"
Nice shot, definately the sort of thing I'd expect to see in a tourist brochure. Colours are rich and details sharp all through the frame. Great stuff!
Thanks for sharing

The tower is a bit close to the frame ,but for the rest a superbe piece of Victorian-Kiwi culture!
Nog bedankt voor je nieuwjaarskartje gisteren1
Exquisite shot for sure! I like your framing and the action in place in the front playing cricket. Makes me wish I was there! Thanks for sharing...
