A typical Dutch landscape, early morning, not far from Rotterdam.
Taken with a 300mm zoom, cropped, adjusted levels and frame.
There is also a sepia version, which I like less, but I think taht it's interesting. See the WS.

Nice, very nice, I like the beautiful lines and indeed, the soft early morning-feeling, nice picture from Holland, Yitzhak!

Very Dutch, but a very distinctive graphic Yitzhak styl presentation of the landscape. Nicely done.

This is really a Dutch picture, Yitzhak, the cows in meadow with the file trees on the background, the morning fog is clearly perceptible at the sky. Calm and peaceful image.

Nice picture. I like the atmosphere. It is a good example of the wet dutch climat. No special focuspoint but almost abstract. Good job.

A pleasant scene from the Dutch countryside, Itzik. A nice layered compo here with the cows grazing on the green pasture, the lined-up trees in the back, and the bright sky above. The morning atmosphere is nicely rendered. The WS photo with the rabbit is nice, too - even though the color setting is limited I prefer color to sepia for this setting and topic. Well done.

They are at home now and not in the fields... Winter is coming now as the minimal temperature is under 0°C... Indeed, very good and typical dutch image... Add just a little more relief and you have my region.

Oh Yitzhak, how I like the atmosphere in this picture. You portrayed a part of the Netherlands, the polders, of which I'm very fond, and the autumn haze is really great here.
The fact that there are still cows grazing outside, also says something about the area, the farmers have not grown that big here, that they can only keep the cattle indoors. And, IMHO, in these polders you NEED to see cows.
Today was a similar day as this one, I guess, may be a little colder, but poor me, I was indoors all day, to rehearse with my choir, and I would have liked to be outside.
Thanks for sharing Yitzhak, I hope you enjoyed seeing these Dutch landscapes.
Oh, I like this verson better.

Hola Yitzhak: I like the composition, it transmits serenity, that beautiful tree bottom it seems to be painted ahead of time, the fog to give a particular touch. What is it it that you to see in the bottom, in the distance? this to be houses or are cows also?. (I like the version sepia a lot it is a color that I enjoy a lot, I like the form in that the grass stands out, if I can see the rabbit). Saludos Cordiaels. *Ninfa Urania*

So nice.The mist is very magical. I like the panoramic format but most od all, I like how the colors are layered. Great shot Yitzhak.
elroyie (2750) 2004-11-22 15:23
Very good composition and very good colours, it seems to me that you have a little quality problem, I suppose it is because of the jpeg.

A nice morning scene Yitzhah, the light was not easy but the scene is pleasant. I think you made a good choice by centering the cow and the trees, it was probably not an option to show more of this white sky and to go back to show more green would have put you farther from the cows, well done.

indeed very typical Yitzhak! Nice how the cows form a line just like the trees. Well balanced compo and nice misty atmosphere.

I am deeply in love with those nice animals.. or in Brittany where i grew up with them or in India where they are evrywhere...
It's a very nice image. Well composed, the way I like it. A flat one... great image.

Just a great shot Itzik, I like everything in it. Not much more to say but well done.

Wow! Sell this one to Nestlé, they will love it, Yitzhak! Well done!

Great use of layers in this composition. The different tones and fade create a sense of distance even if there's no lines to create perspective. In the sky it seems to be a compression problem. It happened to me once or twice and never understood why...
