Water Front

The Netherlands, Rijpwetering – May 2022

Lens artists photo challenge #199 is ‘mechanical/industrial’. Last Saturday was national windmill day. Here a Dutch landscape on a water front. The mill was used in the past to get water out of the polder into this little lake.

Row Row Row your boat

The Netherlands, Lisse – April 2022

The Lens-artists challenge #197 is ‘rule of thirds’. The rule of thirds is a rule of thumb how to compose images. There are more ‘rules’; another is the ‘s’ like in the photo above. Whatever rule you like to use: break them and tweak them till you are happy with the result of the photo you are putting together. In the end your gut tells a lot about what constitutes a decent picture to your liking.

The Netherlands, Oegstgeest – March 2022

A picture that does not fit in a category has to fit in ‘odds and ends’, lens artists photo challenge #189. Though this one could have been in ‘cleaning’, ‘swans in habitat’, ‘grooming for professionals’ etc.

Winter Water

The Netherlands, January 2022

This week lens artists photo challenge is ‘that special place‘. The empty branches of a tree in Winter. During this pandemic I realized that the immediate outside of my house is an inspiration for photos. During the seasons and days it is always nice to look out and sometimes catch a nice view. Looking back over the years I realize that I have always been intrigued by little details near the places where I lived. Making these places special in a certain way.

This weeks challenge #187 is ‘water’.

About the B4 retouch series:
I browsed my archive for pictures to publish. Some of them are partly retouched but most do have scratches, dust and stains
