Mechelen is a small town in the deep, hilly south of Dutch Limburg. Not to be confused with the Belgian city of the same name.

This is a partial view of the graveyard and church i the centre of the village.

Alternative view in WS.

Hi Benny
Time to slow down the pace of life, relax and it's high time to switch off appropriately at a place of peace and rest. The sticking out gravestones lends this a strong anchor point. A calming image that reflects the title very well, beautifully observed and i does make such a difference that adds to the interest of the viewer. Well done,
Best regards

Hello Benny,
The flowering shrub makes a delightful frame for the church with its lovely brickwork and the headstones. I like the lights and colours and the nicely rendered textural detail.

Bonjour Benny,

J'aime beaucoup la construction de cette image. Excellent choix de point de vue . Le regard passe entre les pierres tombales pour atteindre finalement cette superbe petit église de pierres jaunes.

Hi Benny

Effective tight framing with good sharpness and superb color and saturation with the flowers adding a vibrant splash of pink at right. The tombstones add depth and layering. Tfs!

Hi Benny
another attractive graveyard, gotta love graveyards!
smartly framed shot, it fits well in the frame but most importantly its visually appealing and flows well.
I think most people would have gone with a horizontal view, good on ya to be different
