Colour, light and contrast excellent, good together in a successful picture.

Hallo John,
Achter deze toeristen vinden we het ene prachtige gebouw naast het andere.
Vanop de Rozenhoedkaai worden heel veel foto's genomen. Misschien kent Brugge geen andere plaats waar zo vaak gefotografeerd wordt. Doch bijna iedereen neemt foto's in de andere richting, links van dit beeld.
Hierbij toon je aan dat in deze richting kijken ook meer dan de moeite loont.
Het was duidelijk een prachtige dag en de blauwe lucht is een mooie aanvulling van de rode bakstenen gevels en torens.
Vele groeten, Paul

Hi John,

The presence of the crowd is animating the scene. The point of view is showing the details of the buildings. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.


Hello John,

This is very much as I remember Bruges, full of animated tourists, soaking in the atmosphere of the beautiful city, its buildings, its canals, its outdoor cafes and its mouthwatering chocolate shops!
The crowd animates the city, adding a vibrancy to the beautiful setting. The scene is extremely well captured, the people anchoring the f/g against this warm coloured, Medieval backcloth. Even the floor tiles play their part!
Though you have obviously recorded movement, each part of the scene is surprisingly sharp. Well done!

Have a lovely w/e,
Bev :-)

Dear John,

I think this photo perfectly illustrates how many tourist go to this city year-by-year. And of course a big plus point for the dog.

Best Wishes,

Dag John

Een mooi gekaderde toeristenverzameling op een heerlijk zonnige dag. Als 'local' is het natuurlijk leuk dat zoveel mensen je stadje willen zien, anderzijds vraag ik me af of je er soms niet genoeg van hebt en de stad weer even gewoon voor jezelf wil hebben, t.t.z. ik heb dat gevoel hier in Antwerpen toch soms.

Hallo John,
Een prachtige mix van de oude architectuur van Brugge op deze zonnige dag en de vele toeristen die de stad komen bewonderen. Het fijne licht laat de kleuren prachtig uitkomen. Heel mooi fotowerk!

Bonjour, cher ami John,
Voilà une composition qui fait plaisir à voir, il y a du mouvement, de plus, tout est naturel et plein de vie. L'on prend toujours autant de plaisir à contempler les architectures environnantes (c'est un véritable trésor à ciel ouvert).

Hello John,
I like very much how you have included the crowd of tourists in the composition instead of just capturing the architecture in isolation, beautiful though it is. Top class technical presentation as always.

Bonjour John,

Comme d'habitude, il y a beaucoup de touristes à Bruges. On ne se demande pas pourquoi, la ville est tellement belle et accueillante.Tout s'explique parfaitement dans cette photo.



Hello John,
Too many tourists in the same place can be a nuisance, but here you found good use of the small crowd that animates the view of the bridge very nicely. They don't spoil the view of the pretty buildings but actually make the entire photo more attractive. The sharpness and exposure are as always excellent.
Kind regards,

John, I like this one very much because there's so much to be detected in this picture. The different gestures and postures of the people, the architectural gems and the play of light and shadows in the facades - great! A wonderful day in this wonderful city ...
See you!

Hello John
We can appreciate the charming buildings even with the crowd in the foreground. In fact these people add life and motion to the composition.
Well saturated colors and good exposure as well.

Ciao John

The red facades & roofs of the attractive, historic buildings contrast well with the blue sky. The people add scale and animate the scene. Tfs!

Hi John
Does look very interesting touristy historic sight as seen from this view point, full of life with the background architecture rests as promeinent features. The colour is vibrant and exposed to your very best - they have vigoiurised this place tenfold. Well done, Congrats.

Good morning John,
Indeed, I have never been there (Hope to go one day though !), but as you mention it, everybody knows how famous is the place.
You represented a very lively scene, with the tourists strolling on the bridge, in front of the beautiful secular buildings.
Excellent management of sharpness, details and colours.
Thanks for sharing and have a good day !

Hallo John,

All the best from the south of Spain.

Hi John,
well I always said that if crowds of people are coming somewhere then it usually means it is worth to go there...
Beautiful place, it is on my list to visit, I think I may be able to get there next year maybe.
Great weather day with attractive sky, impressive architecture and the crowds of tourists which you included in the foreground are adding so much life and business to the scene.

Excellent work!!

Büyük Usta,
Tam bir günlük hayat'tan AN ve belgesel kalacak muhteşem fotoğraf.
Binaların eskiliği ve bakımlılığı muhteşem.
Tabii bunları korumakta kültür işi.Her şeyin evvelinde 'Güzellik istiyorsak önce 'SEVME'yi öğrenmeli-bilmeliyiz.
Müsaadenizle Siz'i tekkrar tekrar tebrik ediyorum.
Büyük Fotoğraf Ustası'na Bodrum'dan
Selam ve sevgiler yolluyorum.

Ciao John
sono abituato ad andare a Firenze tutte le settimane per lavoro e conosco bene il traffico dei turisti nel centro storico e conosco Bruges, credo ci sino delle cose in comune da questo punto di vista.

Hello, John!
Usually I don't like the crowds of tourists. But they look very harmonic with these wonderful buildings on the background. The sharpness is perfect as a result of your skills and good photo equipment.
Best regards,
