Tulips, clogs, windmills, cheese and lots of bikes - so often associated with Netherlands, a country little known in Poland. We Poles have no sentiment in the Netherlands, we have declared there friends of our country. The Netherlands is a very liberal. I think most of the world, and this applies to both the economy and the social, moral and cultural, but also need to pay attention to the facts more widely known. For example, the Netherlands - a small country wedged between Germany and the North Sea - is very modern and very beautiful.
The Netherlands has more than 15,000 km roads of cycling. I think everyone in the Netherlands has a bike. Wheelers is two times more than cars. Another interesting fact is that: The Dutch are the highest Europeans, but for coming to this country is more important is that they are very hospitable and welcoming. They like to organize and participate in various events - festivals, parades, concerts, meetings, exhibitions and happenings. We will not get bored in the Netherlands.

swietny kadr przedstawiajacy przedmiot,bez ktorego wiekszosc Holendrow nie wyobraza sobie zycia:)
Jednak dla mnie zdecydowanie pierwszoplanowa role odgrywa tutaj piekna sceneria-kolorowe drzewa tworzace niezwykla,urocza atmosfere.

Witaj, rzeczywiście w Holandii jest bardzo duzo rowerów i czasem niestety lądują one w kanałach. A przechodzien musi bardzo uważać, bo jeżdżą bardzo szybko! Ale na tym zdjęciu jest tylko jeden rower, za to cudowny wioosenny nastrój, z tym kwitnącym drzewem, z którego część płatków juz opadła, tworząc rózowy dywan. Sliczne zdjęcie.
Ja byłam w Holandii w tym samym czasie, zainteresowana raczej tulipanami.

What an interesting note you have given us - and what a fabulous photograph too!
The bicycle might be the main focus of attention in this picture, but its surroundings are sublime. The fallen cherry blossom on the pavement and roadway lends a beautiful colour to the photograph, complemented by the blossom still on the tree and contrasting well with the bright green foliage in the wooden tub on the left.
A well composed and balanced picture with gorgeous colours, lovely soft lighting, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

The bicycle may be a Dutch symbol, but in this picture it really plays a minor role. The astonishing amount of pink flowers on the trees and the ground have such a strong impact, and so do the yellow flowers. The picture is also extremely well composed with three horizontal fields dominated by pink, yellow/green and pink again. Also the bícycle and the yellow/green flowers and leaves are perfectly placed on thirds. And the light is perfect too. It couldn't get much better,

Beautiful shot of the spring time, while we are marching into the fall with different color display. This reminded us of the time few months ago. I love all the pink petals scatter across the brick walkway. I like the presense of the bycicle also very typical of a alternative transportation in Holland.

Hello Monika - This is a really beautiful shot. A simple concept but the detailing makes this very special. Light, colour and texture all play a major role in the success of this well composed image. My congratulations! Warm regards rosemary

looking at the thumbnail, I was thinking Japan!
Very good POV and framing, very unusual shot to be edited in autumn (in the North hemisphere) with delicate pink hues!

Hi dear Monika
Wow what is this magical pink color world?!?
Frankly I am astonished at this color touch.
Sharp and clear image as usual and best combination of each component. Thank you for your sharing with your best work and have a good day!

Czarujaca prezentacja tego fajnego miejsca. Doskonale zbudowalas te scenę i kompozycje, a dodatkowo szczegóły i kolory grają tu fantastycznie. Brawo!
npecanhuk (68104) 2012-11-01 16:24
Charming and lovely picture!
I specially enjoyed the colors, management of light and composition!
The presence of those flowers on the pavement and of that bike are highlights here!
TFS - congrats,

Hello Minica! This is a very interesting photograph and a very interesting note to accompany it too.
This face and flowers details and effect gave a charm idea ! shot is about and depth you achieve here with some nice colors to add interest in fairly dull day. But the bright colors do add the visual aspect of the shot to cheer up the rather threatening sky and this provides good overall contrast to this composition with the bike to one idea . Well done

What a beautiful scene! This seems to be an ordinary street, but you made it look magical. I love how subtle (yet how rich) the detail is here. The multiple horizontal lines are a nice element as well.
All the best for both of you in 2013!
