Hello Hansie:)
I can say WOW!!!!!! this is so nice place and you made that very well, lovely DOF - congrats:)

ah ik zie het al. Ons nieuwe vakantiehuisje! :-D
Echt super gaaf! Mooie heldere kleuren en de belichting op het witte huis geven een speels effect aan de foto.
Ik had alleen wel de naam onderin gecentreerd. Het staat nu wat drukjes IMO.
Maar voor de rest echt een mooie foto.

Groetjes Simone

Hi Hans,

I can see your usual style of perspective and framing for this palace architecture, working well to bring out the colors and contrast.

Good FG diagonal and green lawn, with blue sky. The golden roof is fantastic for this white-walled palace.

TFS, bill

Hello dear friend Hans,

Back at last and trying to catch up with TL. Wonderful shot, excellent clarity, nice angle, very good DOF and exposure.

hi hans, great composition, clarity and colors, the architecture is amazing, well done,
thanks, scott

Hoi Hans,

Mooie compositie! Lekkere diepte in de scherpte. Misschien had ik het geel/oranje van het dak nog iets vetter aan gezet. Maar ik vind hem zo ook heel mooi!
