I spent last weekend in and about Mechelen, a wonderful small village in the deep south of Dutch Limburg.


Great walking territory. This picture was shot on a slow road not far from the village of Mechelen.

Hi Benny,very nice springtime view on this countryside road,i like the DOF on the right to show us the white flowers and the blurred view on the left too,well done! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hello Benny,
It's a simple view from the countryside in spring, but it's very attractive and well composed with the road on a diagonal and the white flowers in the foreground. You used the shallow depth of field well to make the flowers sharp and the rest slightly blurred.
Best regards,

Bonjour Benny,

J'aime beaucoup cette composition. C'est très romantique comme petite route de terre, surtout lorsqu'il y a des fleurs à l'avant plan. Belle ligne de fuite et bon choix de profondeur de champs.

Hello Benny ,
Jolie idée que le flou d'arrière plan pour mettre en valeur la floraison au premier plan .

Hello Benny

I like the DOF here. This image could have been taken anywhere in the world. I like the contrast between the greens and browns. Nice


Hi Benny
Good shooting ideas, but wondering where the dirt road leads to with the blooms help the eye to hang on firmly there. The combination of colours and contrast definitely lifted this capture. Congrats
Best wishes

Dag Benny,

Limburg een mooi fiets landschap streek maar soms even op de pedalen duwen.
Er zitten soms stevige kuiten bijters in het landschap.
Natuurlijk is wandelen heel mooi maar voor mij over, nochtans een wandelaar geweest.
U creëert mooie diepte en perspectief.
Mooie natuur foto, bedankt.

Groeten uit Oost-Vlaanderen,
