Picture Bruges 2018

Ceremony carriage Bruges, as portrait, taken with permission.
Are you looking for a carriage for your wedding or anniversary, for a parade or a procession, a walk or a carnival, perhaps for a historical reconstruction or a guided visit?
Even for very unique events you will find the appropriate carriage here, which is mixed by one of our coachmen in a matching outfit.
How many people can be transported?
By how many horses is that carriage drawn?
These answers and more information is mentioned in the coaches.

I hope you can enjoy.

Hello John,
Another topclass and interesting capture and TE entry in your gallery.
Very well composed. Perfect layout and sharpness. The little cute boy seems to be irritated but fits very well to yoru compo.
TFS and best regards

Hello John,
It's a very nice triple portrait. Only the little boy doesn't look like he wants to pose, but he looks cute anyway. Do the man and woman both belong to the "crew", or are they the ones who just got married? In any case they look proud to be in charge of the carriage, and by posing they gave you enough time for a technically perfect photo.
Kind regards,

Hallo John,
De kleine jongen suggereert een vruchtbaar huwelijk wanneer je deze paardenkoets huurt voor de trouw.
Of misschien wil men zeggen dat ze ook beschikbaar zijn voor communies en andere feesten ?
Een mooi trio, excellent scherp gepresenteerd.
Vele groeten, Paul

Witaj John!
A very nice scene.
Interesting carriage.
Good frame and composition.
Boy makes impression.
I like colors, light and sharpness.
Well done.
Good evening.

Hi John,

You have captured well the smiling and serious expression of the persons. The point of view is showing the details of their clothings. The light is giving good colours rendering. Have a nice day.


Hi John
as much as I enjoy the people in the photo, I also like examining the carriage and its smaller elements - for example the light on the far right side. Seems like the man doesn't know exactly which camera to look at haha. clear and sharp shot, well done. cheers

Hello John,

A superb group portrait of the coach drivers and the small boy, with pinpoint sharpness & good color & saturation. Nice use of a shallow dof too. Tfs!

Bonjour, cher ami John,
J'aime ce petit air nostalgique qui passe à travers cette composition.
J'aime beaucoup voir ces cochers, ces voitures, ces chevaux (des vrais, cette fois-ci et non à vapeur).
Très belle mise en image.

Hallo John,
Een prachtig portret van dit paar voorop de koets en gekleed in keurige, statige uniformen en het jongentje in een lichtere kleur overhemd tussen hen in. De oude architectuur vormt een mooi achtergrond. Uitstekende scherpte ook.

Salut John,
Bien présentées ces personnes sur leur fiacre, des portraits parfaits et une netteté excellente, bien réalisé.

Ciao John
ritratto di famiglia in costume riuscito molto bene, credo che anche i protagonisti siano molto soddisfatti.

Hello John, You like the carriages in Bruges, don't you? Excellent triple portrait. Fantastic composition. I am sure that the coachmen were delighted to see it.

Kind regards Malgo

Hello John,
Charming capture of this proud family group. Well cropped to put the accent on the subjects. Perfect technical realisation.

Ciao John, lovely multiple portrait with beautiful carriage, nice expressions, curious for the boy, fine details, excellent clarity, splendid light and wonderful colors very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Bonjour John,

Je ne reviens pas de constater à quel point le petit garcon semble figé entre les deux adultes.Le couple s'est bien prêté au jeu et l'ensemble raconte une belle histoire.

Bonjour John
Beaux triples portraits, les cochers sont très élégants, le petit bonhomme semble timide, c'est un chariot romantique qui doit être tirée par plusieurs chevaux, peut être 4 ou 6 !!!
Bonne soirée

Hi John,
Old fashioned clothes give that extra touch to this portrait. Colours of coats and the carriage match perfectly. Blurry background of old town of Bruges fits on the theme too.

Great photo, a very nice scene, the costumes are really attractive and it is for sure an attractions to see such an old style carriage, very well captured
regards Ryszard

Hello John, very good family portrait in the carriage, very well captured in this interesting image, with good sharpness, light, color and quality. Very good and interesting work perfectly done, my congratulations my friend. Thank you for sharing this beautiful work.

Good night and happy week.
Warm greetings from the south of Spain.

Hi John
A terrific group portraiture on a classic horse carriage; confident and self-possessed and there's lovely personalities going on here. Great eye contact except for the kid who is probably too shy! but lends a nice colour break there. Love your pov by bringing yourself slightly down, great natural colurs and your absorbing human interest scene.

They're sure an attention grabber on something you don't see every day to suit the yester year's feel!! This sums up the compo precisely, it's skillfully captured filled by amazing light & tones, shades & shadows. Great visual and good for Belgium tourism advert...

Fabs capture, tfs
Best regards

ja mooi portret werk John,
heel fraai gemaakt.

Hello John,
A fine photo of these carriage drivers and their son (?). I like their sharp figures against the blurry facade in the background. 👍

Dressed in old but stylish outfits, the young family seem to agree to post for you, while on the way to the wedding, John.
Wonderful portraits of happy faces, the elements of the carriage are attractive objects to the scene.
Wish you a nice weekend,

Dag John The spirit of yesteryears if fully depicted in this professional rendering that shows much details in the black color. I notice they forgot to dress the young boy of suspenders over his shirt to conform to the fashion of by-then! Heel mooi fotowerk. Groeten
