[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

The solitaire white cloud draws my attention when traveling through the blooming tulip fields near Vogelenzang.

This is a picture from last year spring. Today I had the plan to take my camera to take pictures of this year "Dutch Spring", but unfortunately the weather doesn't look to good for photography, although the temperature is fine, the sky is grey and dull....but I will take it a go, maybe the heaven breaks open....

PP work, not much, shot in raw, adjusted clarity and contrast. Converted to jpeg, adjusted levels and curves (all minimal). Resized and sharpened with USM. Finally add frame.

Hoi Hans,
uitstekende compositie. Zeer goed gekozen POV dat dit ons in staat stelt om zo goed te zien dat veld van bloemen eenzame wolk.
Ik hou ook van de manier waarop je kiest.
Vrolijk Pasen voor u zowel als uw gezin!
Een rustige dag,

Prachtig KLEURENPALET MET EEN donzig wolkje ALS EEN Meeuw

Nice shot Hans - nice to see the layers of colour in the FG, the deep blue sky with a solitary cloud to draw the eye. All very sharp and I reckon the horizon's straight ;-)

Hello Hans! I like this solitary cloud over a colorful tulip filed! Well composed and shot with a great technique, well done!


Bonjour Hans,

Incroyable et magnifique champ de tulipes.
La capture du nuage solitaire est judicieuse.
J'aime beaucoup l'horizon avec la pointe du clocher qui tutoie le ciel.
Ravissante composition avec ces nuances de couleurs, c'est souriant.
Merci et bon Week-end. Yolande
