pierrefonds (54610) 2009-07-31 4:39
This is an impressive field of tulips. The vertical rows of tulips are giving depth and perspective to the composition. The subject is well framed. The quality of the light is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
rodgerg (55767) 2009-07-31 4:52

leonorkuhn (16235) 2009-07-31 5:36
This picture is really beautiful. Gorgeous tulip fields very well captured in great perspective. Excellent contrast of colors.
jlbrthnn (79791) 2009-07-31 5:37
It is a spectacular experiment. The image is coloured, it is the least which one can say. The flowers seem to amalgamate. Cheer.
Have a nice day
cigdom (2576) 2009-07-31 5:59
This photo is really like a painting. The colours make this photo very attractive. Balanced composition and very nice depth.
Have a nice day
Nicou (115336) 2009-07-31 6:20
Cette perspective sur ce champs de tulipes est merveilleuse, que dfe belles couelurs, l'effet graphiques de signées, une merveille.
Bravo et amitié
belido (19934) 2009-07-31 6:21
it's impossible to pass here without writing something about this attractive photography. The colors are as they must be, the perspective with the lines in diagonal seem to be the perfect feature to make this even more interesting. Finally the blue sky as the background and to fill the upper part. Outstanding!
PS: see you in 2 weeks.
bukitgolfb301 (34252) 2009-07-31 6:22
Hello my dear John
What a so beautiful and comfortable shot !
Good framework, color balance and each portion are very effective and impressive. Very fantastic color world from reed, yellow and blue.
Congratulation on your good job !
Thanks for sharing and best regards,
Have a good weekend !
pauloog (11747) 2009-07-31 6:55
Ik moet bekennen dat ik niet zo een fan ben van tulpen met hun hevige kleuren die de ogen pijn doen. Maar het blijft natuurlijk iets spectaculairs dat je goed weergegeven hebt met de lijnen die in de hoek samenkomen.
Loic_bzh (7646) 2009-07-31 7:11
It looks like Brittany! (only kidding, but eveybody told me that my breton tulips shots looked like they have been shot in the Netherland). Nice colors (of course!) and perspective...
Have a good week-end,
Selmik (2939) 2009-07-31 7:27
thank You for your comments.
Could not pass by this beauty,composition of contrasted colors,clarity,details,diagonal perspective-everything is perfect in this photograph!
Have a great long weekend!
gilou530 (34) 2009-07-31 7:47
une superbe perspective avec un bon angle et utilisation des lignes de fuite, dommage pour la netteté mais ce genre de sujet n'est pas facile
saxo042 (36712) 2009-07-31 8:19
A marvellous study of three strong colours of sky blue, red and yellow! A row between the red tulips has a good anchor at the corner the perspective is outstanding!
bracasha75 (24517) 2009-07-31 9:12
What for a colorfull picture
Realy intresthing POV and shot for joy
Silvio1953 (115145) 2009-07-31 9:38
Ciao John, wonderful composition with splendid tulip fields, great èperspective and fantastic colors, very well done, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
xuaxo (6846) 2009-07-31 9:47
Outstanding view of the famous tulip fields.
Sometimes they seem like big "flags". In this case it would be the Spanish flag.
Amaz (11475) 2009-07-31 10:42
Excellent colours and perfect composition!!
Buin (42256) 2009-07-31 11:12

Amazing landscape, very beauty fields of flowers.
Wonderfull colours and very interesing contrast efect of meeting sky and fields.

danyy (0) 2009-07-31 13:24
toutes ces couleurs donnent vraiment bien d'autant que le ciel est là pour apportaer sa contribution avec un bien joli bleu.
Bel effet de perspective fuante qui donne tellement de profondeur à la scène.
My friendly regards.
Ninello52 (7475) 2009-07-31 14:19
Questi campi di tulipani sono davvero incredibili! Qui è molto bella la prospettiva con il punto di fuga laterale, bello anche il contrasto con il cielo blu e terso(senza nuvole). Eccellente la nitidezza e la lettura del paesaggio all'infinito!
anesugur (18789) 2009-07-31 14:59
Very nice scenery.
Excellent colors, details with superb POV.
Best regards. Uğur
chinchini (31529) 2009-07-31 22:49
Ils font toujours autant d'effet ces champs de tulipes à perte de vue. Les rangées de fleurs ainsi que l'alternance des couleurs font merveilles, créant une grande PDC.
Excellent weekend mon Ami
BilboCA (734) 2009-07-31 23:04
Another stunning photo.
What I especially like is two elements: the strong geometric lines and the rich hues, especially the red-yellow-red.
Gerrit (43775) 2009-07-31 23:56
Mooie kleuren en prachtige lijnen.
Ik meende even dat dit de flevopolders waren waar je ook zulke uitgestrekte velden hebt. Heel mooi die zeeuwse bollenvelden.
mauro61 (52623) 2009-08-01 0:34
splendida spianata colorata con le diagonali delle coltivazioni che si perdono all'infinito.
Immagine suggestiva che racchiude una delle peculiarità dell'Olanda.
papagolf21 (82978) 2009-08-01 1:34
Cher ami John,
Dites-le avec des fleurs ! eh bien ! là, les fleurs de tulipe s'allongeant en diagonale sont d'une grande beauté.
Un cadrage bien pensé (mais cela, ce n'est pas nouveau).
Les tulipes sont maintenant défleuries et coupées, je suppose !
Une image colorée à souhait.
Très bon week-end mon cher ami.
denisn72 (8300) 2009-08-01 5:02
What a stunning field of tulips! The diagonals are strong and drive my glance. The colours and light are excellent. The blue sky fits well with the red and yellow. Cheers!
luighi (5297) 2009-08-01 7:54
Hi Mr Jhon ,
Bellisima postal de Holanda con esos tulipanes dando un cromatismo espectacular a los campos.
TFS my friend.
Un cordial saludo.
jmdias (51983) 2009-08-01 17:08
amazing colors and this view where the lines added some graphism to the compo. beautiful contrast between the blue sky and these colors on the ground. perfect framing, pov and light. well done
yedirenk (11244) 2009-08-01 18:30
Hi dear John,
an extraordinary graphical effect with superb diagonal colours.a great infinite under the wonderful blue sky.superb contrast..well done.TFS
Have a nice weekend
ChrisJ (94426) 2009-08-01 19:33
Good use of dominishing linear perspective, with vibrant warm colours of the tulip flowers, that contrast well against the blue sky. Have a nice Sunday!
pablominto (53744) 2009-08-01 23:23
As judged by what I have to pay for tulips this field is worth millions hahaha!
Strong diagonal composition, and the rich colours are outstanding in the fine light...
The frame is well divided sky/land, with excellent sharpness in all details!
siolaw (38018) 2009-08-02 0:13
A Dutch classic, under optimal light enhancing the color saturation. Good use of the line for a strong perspective
cbrman (21637) 2009-08-02 2:49
Les couleurs saturées attirent le regard dans cette image. La perspective est très forte et la compo bien pensée mais je regrette le placement central de la ligne d'horizon.
josepmarin (57465) 2009-08-02 3:36
The lines of the tulip fields create a strong sensation of perspective and dynamism, because of your well select framing.
And the vivid colors of the flowers, with the red and yellow stripes of the Spanish flag, has a special visual attraction.
Everything works very well in this so nice and effective composition.
Giorgio (11279) 2009-08-02 4:39
- Special mention for this extraordinary floral composition, in first colors but also this nice diagonal and excellent perspective, well done!
Have a beautiful sunday.
* In the sixties, even fields of tulips of Holland, existed near Paris.
Didi (54667) 2009-08-02 5:26
Je regrette la disparition du célèbre champ de tulipes qui existait à Aulnay sous bois en Région Parisienne.
J'apprécie ces vives couleurs; bonne perspective en oblique.
Budapestman (82620) 2009-08-02 5:49
amazing landscape with vivid colours and beautiful details, the depth of the photo is superb, excellent composition and lights, Tfs! Have a nice sunday!
bertolucci (13356) 2009-08-02 8:05
Overtuigend, kleurig en grafisch deze. Door het zijdelingse verdwijnpunt ook dynamisch. Ik zal voorlopig niet meer op TE posten dus zal uw werk een beetje à la Hanssie gaan volgen.
Een natuurlijk bedankt voor uw comments op de andere site.
Groeten uit een bewolkt Rotterdam bij 24 graden.
syrus_persia (2270) 2009-08-02 10:06
What a brilliant colors full of lovely flowers.
jafadabret (56497) 2009-08-02 10:46
C'est une photo très colorée qui nous ramène au printemps. J'aime les perspectives et le beau ciel bleu.
Bonne soirée !
TopGeo (38168) 2009-08-02 12:21
Scenes of flowers with view of the famous tulip fields and coloursalso! and harmonious placement give a picture as carpet!
Vasa (16732) 2009-08-02 15:10
No doubt, John, the landscape is from Netherlands. Beautifully realized with the geometrical play of the lines. Correct proportion of the sky and the groun. All compliments, friend!
AiresSantos (56155) 2009-08-02 23:57
Hi dear John
Wonderful colours in this fine picture with lots of tulips.
Excellent POV and diagonal lines

sacimar (25975) 2009-08-03 17:28
beautiful picture, Do you know that these tulips are showing the colours of the flag of Spain?, red yellow red... excellent perspective and great colours and light, well done!
gunbud (34066) 2009-08-03 18:38
I see you went back to the spring time to show us this fantastic array of brilliant colors.
The red tulips contrast nicely with the yellow ones that pay a fantastic compliment to the vivid blue sky.
Graal (95079) 2009-08-04 0:07
wow, fantastic view. Great palette of colours, amazing field of tulips. Friends all told You. I like this photojob also.

rengarenk bir görüntü olmuş.son derece güzel bir bakış açısı.özellikle canlı renkler ve netlik mükemmel.ayrıca derinlikte harika görünüyor elinize sağlık.
Bruno40 (6658) 2009-08-04 6:24
A well captured classic Dutch scene. I have no complaints about the colours, I like strong colours, and I think they still look natural. I think however that there is a bit of over sharpening on the tulips in the fg. Just my impression in my monitor. Also, there is something strange around your signature, some kind of "ghost" tulips.
Anyway, a good work, well done
John_F_Kennedy (41980) 2009-08-04 7:45
A lovely shot!!! And taken in quite bright light, very nice. A perfect composition in this diagonal format.
vmf-214 (1648) 2009-08-04 9:40
Just a wonderful POV of the tulip fields, Very colorful and nice lighting. Wonderful job on the depth you can see for miles. Great job John.
lucasgalodoido (21051) 2009-08-04 10:19
impressive this view of this colorfuk flored field. The saturations is beatufil, and also the colors contrast. Great job, my friend.
adramad (34939) 2009-08-05 11:12
Impressive this field of tulips, the composition on the vertical striping of color they meet a great depth to the apprehension, perfect luminosity and color. Well done.
gneufeld (15884) 2009-08-05 17:59
Striking colors, strong lines, and impressive depth. Well done and TFS. Gerald
skippy007 (12510) 2009-08-06 4:28
Hello John, An amazing sea of colour, nice perspective with good diagonal lines. I wonder if a smaller aperture giving you a bigger depth of field would have worked. A nice colourful scene with good contrasting colours.
jemaflor (80000) 2009-08-06 12:53
Well framed a great perspective and depth with these colorful lines, nice colors and light.
ciakgiak (30405) 2009-08-07 8:40

I'can't stop loving your great shots of these fields, stunning colors and endless perspectives.
Very well done!
sevy (15287) 2009-08-10 0:30
Not original from my side to comment this photo, but I am always impressed by these flowers fields nicely colored.
I am surprised this shot was taken with 100mm, looking it I was more thinking to a wide angle due to the rendering of the lines going far in the background.
Nice effect also to see the flowers merging in background to build full colored lines.
bakes888 (18499) 2009-08-11 23:33
Hi John. Our spring is just starting and you show me these beautiful blooms from the north! ;-) Wonderful capture, brilliant colours and good detail. Well composed also with good perspective and depth. Nice work and thanks for sharing.

Welcome after the break.
I hope, you doing well.
Fantastic strong colours and stunning composition.
Matthew-Watt (6043) 2009-08-17 2:45
A wonderful sight, I have never seen such fields before, something I must travel to Europe to see. The flowers are world famous. My parents, whom were recently in the Netherlands were very impressed with the flower markets in Amsterdam, a place where many of these will no doubt be sold. The distant trees show the huge scale of this farm, and the beautiful clear skies are a wonderful compliment to the wonderfully saturated tulips below them.
subhendu_bagchi (25111) 2009-08-19 18:21
Namaste Jaap, a lot of colours in a singe frame. Fantastic. Good sharp shot with great DOF. Nice to see those flowers in the backdrops of blue sky. Tfs.

The prospect is almost endless and with a wonderful frame.

Good morning John,
A marvelous spring light over the magnificent endless Tulips field.
Great contrast to blue sky's.
Have a nice autumn day, also in contrast...
thebest (4272) 2012-12-14 23:55
Many tulips my goodness what a wonderful display of colour - here in Australia where we live - we have a Tulip Festival once a year - they really are beautiful flowers - sadly they do not last very long.
Miguel82 (19405) 2013-09-10 10:04
Splendid tulips fields in the sun John, superb light and deep field of vision, vivid colors and neat image, have a nice evening
ourania (25532) 2014-02-18 11:08
it's very interesting to see how you dealt with one of your favourite subjects in this case, where you had a very bright sunshine, no clouds and a particular lens. Your picture is lovely and vibrant, the dynamism of the lower part, the total calmness of the upper one, the bright, contrasting colours and the absence of any distractions whatsoever, have created very effective and appealing graphism. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
elenimavrandoni (14197) 2014-04-18 10:23
John, I can't get enough of those tulip fields and their beauty in color and in contrast! such a wonderful spring image!!
very well prepared soil and fantastic flowers growing side by side creating a unique colorful carpet!!
