Rip rap in the foreground, Oosterscheldekering dam, wind turbines and the Veerse Meer.
The lake Veere is a lagoon in the province of Zeeland. It was separated from the North Sea in 1961 by the Delta Works dam system. It is 22 km long, and 1,500 m wide in places. Lying between the old islands of Noord-Beveland, Zuid-Beveland and Walcheren, it is linked to the river Scheldt by the Zandkreekdam lock, which allows this lagoon to have brackish water, slightly less salty than sea water. There are 13 small uninhabited islands in the lake. Some of its banks, underwater at high tide, have been made into nature reserves, while others are popular for water sports, such as sailing (wiki).

I like very much this composition in a vertical frame. The depth and clarity of the picture are remarkable. The whites look overexposed but the play of shapes, light, shadows and dark colours along the embankment is superb. It's nice that you got some vivid yellow and green spots brightrned by the sunlight. The contrast with the blue tones is wonderful. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

This is a very nice composition. The light was certainly difficult on your camera, but it managed adequately. I wonder if a fill-in flash would have helped. Overall, a very pleasant photo.

Technical perfect picture, also a lovely angle, this is a very known place for me, I comes there regular but took never a picture.
Excellent perspective and depth image.
This all is made after the disaster of 1953.
Composition and presentation be superb.
Very well done, TFS.

They may not be that beautiful but these rock groyne walls will prevent a repeat of the catastrophe of the 1950's, when the North Sea overtopped much smaller earthen walls and flooded huge areas of Holland with much loss of life. Good sharpness and excellent warm cold color contrasts between the blue water and yellow green seaweed on the rocks. Tfs!

Side light over the grey stones of the artificial pier enhanced it's green and yellow colors of the algees.
Good contrast to blue, well shown with good clarity.

An interesting shot which could be done here, as we have a lot of haze reaching in some places in Malaysia almost hazardous level. The FG is very sharp in the the sunlight while the bridge in the BG is almost not visible. Good photo job
