Hi Te friends, I want all TE friends thanks for the continue visiting to my pictures, during the almost 7 year active on TE (December), this is my 1000th picture.
I've chose Ghent a very beautiful old city.
Since one month can I take a pictures low against the water through the new gangway behind the New Fish market, not real a fish market, this building was formerly a fish market, but the name remain.
The interior is restored to a ballroom, also a refreshment room in combination with dance.
The picture shows the old "Vleeshuis" out of the 15th century, in foreground the river the 'Leie' a natural river.

This promotion center is housed in a 15th century building in the center of Ghent.
The building was formerly used as uncovered meat market. Only to see the Great Butcher all worthwhile.
The wooden beams hang countless hams are among the tables to sit and enjoy all the goodies as Ontario produce. There are regular special exhibitions and activities. There are special arrangements for groups. Composite lunches to receptions and day packages.
The website of the Great Butcher read more about the possibilities.
The Great Butcher is located in the historic center of Ghent between the Corn Market and Counts.

I wish every visitor a pleasant moment and enjoy of these picture.

Bonjour John,
Bravo pour cette 1000th sur TE, 1000 photos parmis lesquelles très très peu n'étaient pas belles. Un clin d'oeil à la jolie ville de Gand pour commémorer l'événement.

Cong's on the first-thousand, John.
(for me every picture is remarkable - no special round number makes it to me).
Great view on the old town along the canal's bank.

Hello John! 1000th post on TE! Congratulations. Superb shot. Master Work. Well done!

Hello John

Hello John, first of all congratulations for your 1000th upload with such a beautiful composition. Having been to Brussels and Brugge, I haven't seen the city of Ghent which is located between the two cities. That's a pitty. But your beautiful photos of that city compensates my ignorance of Ghent to a certain extend. Warm regards, Tolga

ciao John,
complimenti per il grande traguardo raggiunto e per le bellissime immagini che ci hai finora proposto.
Questa sul canale ha nella luce e nei colori il suo punto di forza con un'ottima resa.

Hello John,
Congratulations on reaching this fantastic milestone. I like this brightly lit and lively composition that has a lovely summery atmosphere about it. The railing with its shadow makes an interesting frame and introduces a graphical element. Very good colours and clarity. Here's to the next 1000.


Dag best John,

Gefeliciteerd voor deze 1000th.
An excellent participation for TE, a master member.
This one is an another superb shot of Ghent, a very nice city. An iamge with a POV very well selcetd and the details of the architectur very well collected.
Have a nice week,

Hello John

Congratulations with your 1000th - quite an achievement! Good perspective along the river. I would like very much once to visit the Great Butcher. Beautiful old architecture very well conveyed.

Hi John,
Congratulations...You chose a colourful one for this BIG milestone!
We get a good sense of movement and a nice view of these buildings in the background.

Hello John,

congratulatin to the 1000th picture. I like the POV with the diagonal lines and the marvellous blue sky. The colours are strong and lively, and there is good depth.
Have a fine week

hi john
excellent composition with nice sky you captured.

Hi John,
That long building along the river is quite special. tourist boats add life to this scene. Certainly a town worth visiting. Saturation is strongish to my taste.
Congratulations for your 1000th upload, it is quite an achievement!

many greetings for your 1000th!! One thousand beautiful works, perfect and interesting pictures from you!
This one is interesting too, the building and the place are fine, in a perspective in the water.


Congratulations on your 1000th post, this is quite a landmark. You have chosen a nice shot to mark this moment. Your composition is fine here including the foreground walkway which add depth to the scene. The angle of the shot is nice leading the eye through the shot. The boats give the shot a sense of motion.

Hiephiep hoera. Gefeliciteerd met je 1000e !!!!! foto op TE. En om dat te vieren een foto van je geliefde Gent. Mooi, kleurrijk beeld van het vleeshuis, een van de meest markante monumenten van Gent vind ik toch. Op naar de volgende 1000!

Hi John,

Congratulation for your 1000 picture on TE, it is sharp and clear. The distance between the railing and the building is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the old building. The activities on the canal is showing the daily life. The afternoon light is bringing out the beauty of the colors. have a nice day.

Hi John,
congratulations on your 1000th upload photo.A great landmark of one of the oldest friends of TE.I like the perspective of the image, as the parallel to the canal old Vleeshuis with the passing by tourists in the boat to adds life in the image.Well done.

Have a nice afternoon,Danos

Hi John!
Wow! 1000 pictures here! That's great! Congratulations!
No, I guess we never get tired of your wonderful pictures! They're always beautiful and interesting!
This one has excellent sharpness, exposure, pov, colors, pp, contrasts, horizontal format, black & white borders and composition, as usual!
Thanks for sharing it with all of us once more! Keep up the excellent job!

Hi John!
Congratulations on your one thousandth, and on a wonderful contribution to trekearth with your gallery! This one is very colorful, and there is lots of "perspective" happening also from the right to left and into the distance! The main structure or the old "Vleeshuis", is quite unique looking. Fine work as always, warm regards,

Hallo John,
Een dikke proficiat met je 1.000 prachtige en succesvolle foto's op TE ! En nu hop, naar de 2.000.
Over dat nieuwe pad tegen het water had ik nog niet gehoord. Dit is dus een première. Een foto van het Vleeshuis vanuit dergelijk of vergelijkbaar gezichtspunt werd hier - denk ik - ook nog niet eerder geplaatst.
Het lijkt me wel een warme en drukke zomerdag. Veel mensen in de bootjes en veel mensen op de brug en langs de kade. Dit zorgt voor een aangename en zomerse sfeer. Ook deze foto zal weer veel toeristen overtuigen een bezoek aan Gent te brengen.
En zoals bij je meeste foto's hier weer echt prachtige kleuren.
Nog veel succes toegewenst, Paul

Good evening John,
It is with excellent light and colors that you marks this event. congratulations for the whole of your gallery and the remarkable quality of your work. I hope that you will continue towards the 2000th. Congratulations again!
Have a good evening

Thank you to have showed so many beautiful photos in these 7 years of activity.

All the best!


Hi John
Congrats on yr 1000th shot. What i like most about this wonderful scene is your compo. That railing and the building form a very effective converging lines that add depth, leading eyes into the far bg, very dynamic. Inclusion of colorful lively people adds life and balance to the image. Nice rich colors, contrast and good lighting management, and the water ripples is a plus point. Brilliant shot John, Thks for sharing

Wow, that's quite a round number, John. Congratulations for the achievement. That's a wonderful facade, its lenght combine well with the number of your posts :) Must have been a very interesting fish market and should be a great space for dancing now. Splendid perspective and sky, nice inclusion of the boat full of tourists passing by.

Hi John,
Congratulations for reaching the incredible milestone of 1000 photos published on TE!
I still will be late enough time in obtaining it.
A nice photo of celebration, in a framing that plays elegantly with the diagonals, and that includes the beauty of the sky with the fluffy clouds.
The light is managed well, and the saturation of the colors adds more graphical power to the composition.
Beautiful work, my friend.
Best regards,

Good photo job. Thanks for your critique of my paddy field shot.

sincere congratulations on such a nice number of photos published!
great photo of your beautiful country. very well-chosen design! sky is realy great.
simple but very powerful color photo. very well and professionally done!

Interesting lines in this composition all of them pointing to some-place outside the frame.
TFS John

Hi John,

compliment 4 your target. I've just read your introduction and agree with you. Nice place, beautiful perspective



Howdy John,

Like everyone else an attractive image. I especially like the angle position to showoff the classical waterfront buildings, then the colorful -overcrowded tourist boat.

well done,

Hi John,
beautiful view. You keep surprising me with the wonderful new views from Belgium. The architecture is fantastic but you did a great job here, including this colorful sky made it really eye catching. The river has also an interesting brownish tone.
I like it very much

Wow and it is 1000th!
What a great number. Thank you so much for your presence here! I really enjoy it.

It's probably the longest building in the city - a very strange but very cool. Such a boat ride along the river must be pleased. Excellent composition.

Namaste John,
yes, I am just waiting for it. 1000 photo, a really great achievement. Congratulation. Nice to see the colourful atmosphere with nice water life. Colourful sky is added a lot to it. Great composition. Very well done. Tfs.
Best wishes for future.

First of all, I would like to congratulate you to reach 1000th picture in TE. I wish I could.

Good shot, John.


Hello John,
Your 1000th TE photo shows the main Belgian tourist attractions. So it is quite appropriate for such a remarkable event. Please accept my belated congratulations!
Best regards,

Hoj John.

I guess I'll join the many people congratulating you with 1000 pictures on TE. So, congratulations!!!

The pictures seems well chosen to mark this event. To me it seems a bit oversaturated, but I'll not focus on that. The POV works excellent for showing the town. I don't know the town (stayed there one night in a hotel, as a quick stop on the way to Paris five years ago), but I guess you have managed to include what make this town exactly this town. The note is also worth to notice, as usual.

Have a great weekend,

Hi John.
I missed your 1000th upload! I can't believe it because I remember when you were on 999.
Anyway, I have found it, and of course it reminds me again of lovely old Ghent. Interesting for me to see the new gangway on which you were standing, and naturally I recognise the fishmarkt immediately. Very nice sunny day and beautiful scene with boats full of happy people.
I hope you will achieve another 1000 in the coming years. Congratulations.

Hi dear John. Very nice and long perspective of this river. The boata add a lot of motion to the scen. Natural colors look great in here and sharpness is very good as usual.
Better late than ever, my congratulations for your first thousand pictures on TE; looking forward for the next 1000.
Have a great day.

Hallo John,
You celebrate 1000. Congratulations.
Beautiful picture with intense colors.
The city also as I can see, full of charm.
Have a great weekend Tomasz

Qu'elle magnifique participation sur TE !!
Bravo pour ton travail et bonne continuation..

Hello John,
time to study and comment on a very important and impressive milestone in your career in TE. A very well composed, bright and pleasant picture with fascinating dynamism and sense of movement. I love the way you have arranged elements and colours in the frame. The vividness of the colours is amazing. There are stunning contrasts and every layer brings its own, absolutely distinctive character to the composition. You have given ample space to all dividing the frame among them in a masterful way. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great Sunday,

Hello, John,
I don't remember this your 1000th post on the TE but I think this is not so bad choice for that celebrating. Another interesting summer photo from Ghent. I have only one association with Venice.
All the best wishes,

Hello John,
A very belated congratulations on your 1000th! Nice composition, attractive scenery.
