    Hi Gert

    Gouda is more famous for its cheese than just about anything else and like Amsterdam the city is crowded with bicycles. A fine capture of the imposing town hall. Possibly Amsterdam is one of the few major Dutch cities that deserve more than a full day. Tfs!

    The film strip like black borders work well here. Good sharpness and the meandering road adds strong lead in lines towards the back. I like the parallel paths of the track and canal. Tfs!
