Een oudere foto die zijn plaats hier zeker verdient. Het is een zicht dat ik ken, ik geloof dat we ooit in die taverne iets zijn gaan drinken of eten. De vier wilgen nemen een mooie plaats in binnen het geheel.

Met mijn allerbeste wensen voor 2018. Een goede gezondheid & veel warmte en vriendschap toegewenst!

Benny

Hallo John,
Een heel mooie foto van dit stadje op een zonnige winterdag. Het heldere zijlicht is erg plezierig en de compositie is mooi verdeeld tussen de huizen en het groene veldje met de wilgen. Een goed en gezond nieuwjaar gewenst!

Hi John
An enticing composition with expressive sturdy big bare trees with delicate trunks & branches providing such a structured effect and strong foreground
elements. This extends the depth into the bg features blended with some bright colours, shade & shadow boosting the overall effect. An excellent take, cool and so pleasing to the eye.

Congrats
Wishing You The Very Best for 2018
Best regards

Hello John,

I'm not surprised that this town is a tourist attraction, the buildings look very interesting.
I like how you have used the winter trees in such an effective, upstanding line, to guide inwards to the attraction of the buildings.
The weather looks glorious for December and how good it is to photograph in winter sunlight, which is always low and kind!

I wish you a very happy, peaceful New Year,
Bev :-)

Hello John,
It's a nice small park in what looks like a pleasant corner of the town. The sun is shining nicely on the upper parts of the trees. The photo is well exposed and the colours are very attractive.
Kind regards,
Gert

Hi John,

The length of the street is creating depth. The point of view is showing the details of the park and of the houses. The good luminosity is bringing out the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

Dobar dan.
Interesantan i lep pogled, dobar tekst ...
Lepo pokazano mesto i arhitektura, dobra perspektiva i kontrast, lepe boje, lepo uhvacen trenutak. Lep deo grada sa parkom i fontanom, lepa arhitektura u pozadini. Lepo mesto sa zelenom travom za odmor u hladu drveca.
Dobar tekst o koriscenoj tehnici i elementima snimka.
Zelim vam lepo popodne, sve najbole u novoj 2018. srecno.
Paja.

Bonjour John,

On se demande bien pourquoi tu nous a caché cette petite merveille de photo si longtemps. Le petit parc urbain est magnifique et le village en arrière plan est bien joli sous cette lumière.

Bonne année 2018

Witaj John!
Very nice place, view makes impression.
Good frame and perspective.
I like trees and turret.
Well done.
Good evening.

Hello John,
What a pretty scene from your archives! The green grass around the pond and the play of shadow and light on it look most agreeable.
Happy 2018,

I like the repetition of the 3 pruned trees at right. The diagonal path adds good lead in lines and linear perspective. The bg steeple anchors the shot and is well placed near the vp. Tfs!

Bonjour, cher ami John,
Une prise de vue très agréable d'un mois de décembre bénéficiant d'une belle journée ensoleillée.
1 nouvelle année,
10 sourires chaleureux,
100 pensées bienveillantes,
1000 voeux de bonheur,
300 belles photos
Très bonne année 2018 !
Amitiés.

Salut John,
Bel effet de perspective et de profondeur d'image avec ce cadrage et la vue de ce parc et de la pelouse en premier plan, belle luminosité pour valoriser les maisons et la tour en fond d'image.

Dag John
Prachtige foto van deze zonnige winterdag in Damme. De knotwilgen geven een mooie diepte aan deze foto met zijn heldere kleuren.
Groet uit een winderig en grijs Haarlem, Rob

Hi John
Bel angle de vue sur le village, les perspectives, le contraste des couleurs , le vert lumineux avec le point d'eau, un ciel moutonneux filtrant une belle lumière, un mois de décembre bien différent de celui de 2017
PS) quel plaisir d'être seulement 1 heure a vélo de la mer, je pense que je serait souvent là :-)

Dear John!
Fine take, fine lightness and brightness, superb colours.
Interesting place.
Wonderful trees and architecture.
Good exposure and capture.
Good sharpness.
Sophisticated composition.
Well done!

Hi John.
A delightful scene on a bright winter's day. It might be the quiet quarter of Damme, but a walk up the street might take one to a cosy cafe. A nice selection from your archive, and well worth looking at the high resolution version.
Regards and best wishes for the coming year,
Andrew

The village seems to be beautiful and nice, excellent photo with perfect composition, only the bare willows indicate that the photo was taken in December, the sky is as blue as in Summer

At last a photo showing pollarded willows which I like so much! ;-)
John, the light in their leafless branches and twigs is a nice detail in the composition. On the whole you managed the difficult light here skillfully and I like how the little street leads the eyes into the town, to its town hall.
Tot ziens! ;-)

I went to Google-Map to find where is this town, John. Interesting to realize its a suburb of Bruges, 5 km from city center, and it looks a charming quiet town, the pond is a nice attraction here. The whole is well made from the chosen POV.
Good afternoon,
Ike

Hoe mooi zo, fijne compositie met de bomen hier voor !
