Delft is a lovely old town which retains many of its original features. Situated in the west of the country it is well known for the famous ceramic Delftware, its large university and for being the home of the painter Johannes Vermeer.

Delft is a small town near to The Hague which has a lovely and compact town center much of which is closed to cars and thus all the more enjoyable to walk around. It is easy to make your way and to see all of the sights as they are mostly situated within a 20 walk of the town center. This being Holland there are, of course, canals to wander around if you seek a little quiet.

Ciao Daniel
una delle città che vorrei visitare, i libri di pittura mi hanno incuriosito.
Bella panoramica, un classico per queste città, ottimamente fotografata.
Buona giornata

Bonjour, cher Daniel,
Il y a des vélos mais aussi des voitures, le tout semblant s'entendre sans problèmes majeurs.
Une autre idée de la circulation.
Belle mise en image mettant en valeur le canal et ses ponts à répétition.

Hello Daniel,
A lovely postcard from the delightful city of Delft. I like the fine perspective along the canal and the lights and colours. The bicycles parked against the railings make an interesting frame and contribute a touch of graphism.

Hello Daniel,
The canal itself is lined with cars on both sides, but the bridge in the foreground has bicycles attached to it. A beautiful view down the canal with fine reflections and some nice moody clouds.

Hello Daniel,
It's a kind of iconic composition too. Bicycles attached to the railings of a small bridge crossing a Dutch canal. In spite of the many cars it's a lovely view and your favorite vertical shape works perfectly here.
Best regards,

Composition and presentation are nice to look at.
Very well done, TFS.

Delft is a charming town, Daniel, especially is you look around in the sides of the big canal crossing town.
Marvelous this chosen POV, agreeable colors part of those reflected on water.
Good afternoon,

Hello Daniel,

Amazing and very substantial DOF of your shot with two bicycles parked at the front

The partial reflection from the river stream adds to the beauty effect

Hi dear Daniel

So stylish and comfrotable image via usage of normal lens. Two bycles are so well melt with tatsy town's background. So nice uusal snap in a usual town, but output is splendid.

All the best and have a good day! Takero

Hello Daniel,

You are right about the pleasure of exploring this centre without worrying about traffic. There was a wedding underway in the centre when we were there?
You have included much of what we associate with Holland and given it a very good, angled composition. I like how you have created a fine sense of depth in this sharp, interesting shot.

My warm regards,
Bev 😊

Hello Daniel,
A well composed picture with good depth and several interesting elements.
The cobblestones and the different patterns on the sidewalk and the street make the foreground more charming.
The bikes are a great subject. Too bad of the many parked cars at both sides of the canal. But that is the present-day reality.
Best regards, Paul
