Wonderful Village Sint Anna ter Muiden, archief 2008

Sint Anna ter Muiden is a very small town in the municipality of Sluis in western Zeeuws-Vlaanderen (Dutch province of Zeeland), at the Belgian border.
The city has about 50 inhabitants (2006) and competes with the slightly smaller Staverden and the slightly larger Bronkhorst and Eembrugge for the title 'smallest city in the Netherlands'.
Of these places with historical city rights, only Sint Anna ter Muiden can claim an urban past according to medieval standards.
Another extreme is that Sint Anna ter Muiden is at the westernmost point of the European part of the Netherlands.

I hope you can enjoy.

Beautiful landscape, beautiful colors, well framed and rendered, image well done.!

Hello John,
Behind the trees we see very attractive small buildings, and in the background is an impressive tower. This view across the central part of the photo is quite beautifully framed at the top by a very nice sky with elegant thin clouds, and at the bottom by the nice dark cobbled street. It is a view of what looks like a pleasantly quiet village, and as always it's a technically outstanding photo.
Kind regards,

Ciao John, great view of lovely village, superb sky, wonderful colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello, John!

The sky looks beautiful with these interesting thin clouds, and the street was captured with very nice perspective! Excellent light and sharpness! Wonderful composition!

Witaj John!
Nice view, interesting houses and tower.
Good frame and colors.
I like light and pavement.
Well done.
Good evening.

Hallo John,
Veel ruimte voor jou om te fietsen!
De bomen waren waarschijnlijk gesnoeid in de lente zodat het gebladerte in juni nog geen belemmering vormde voor het zicht op de mooie huizen.
Een bijzondere en zeer robuuste kerktoren. Hij doet me een beetje denken aan die in Damme ... ten minste toch volgens mijn herinnering.
Een prachtige foto met uitstekende scherpte, helderheid, diepte en zeer mooie wolken en lijnen in de lucht.
Heel goed gedaan!
Vele groeten, Paul

Hallo John,
Wat een mooi dorpsgezicht op een prachtige dag met een aangenaam zonlicht en een mooie blauwe lucht met vriendelijke witte wolkjes. De rij bomen voor de huizen, de vierkante toren en de kleine steentjes van de straten zorgen voor een schitterende foto met een uitstekende compositie.

Hi John,

The street is sending my eyes toward the castle which is creating depth. The point of view is showing the details of the houses and of the castle. The light is bringing out the beauty of the colours. Have a nice day.

Hello John,
nice the view of this beautiful and tranquil village with the cobbled street to adds depth and perspective in the scene.The excellent light and colour management enhance even more its beauty.


Hello John,
I love the sight of those cobblestone streets (though I don't necessarily like driving on them). This is a beautiful combination of greens and cute buildings.

Hello John, Lovely view of this small Holland village. Excellent composition, the wide street leads us nicely to the old tower. Charming picture from your archive.

KInd regards MAlgo

Ciao John
bella e piacevole la prospettiva data dalla strada, ma anche il cielo con le striature bianche contribuisce ad aumentare il senso di prospettiva.

Hi John
A beautiful pic of the old village with wonderful clarity, good detail throughout and excellent contrast to green foliage and blue sky. You have done really well with this flawless shot. Congrats
Best regards

Hello John,

THose cobbles make a strong f/g impact and guide us trouble free in either direction to peruse and absorb the details of this pretty little 'city'! Even the sky is in your favour, seeming to draw attention to the square tower and the red roofs, that can be glimpsed behind the trees.
The details are beautifully sharp and the colours nicely saturated.
You give us a sense of place.

Have a lovely day,
Bev :-)

Hello John,

A well composed shot with good sharpness and a clear view up the flagstone street offering fine perspective. Nice repetition of the trees with the bg castle like building adding a focal point. Tfs!

Hello John,
I guess this would be a typical village in the region.
Picture has fine contrasting colors and exceptional visibility. The cobbled stones road shown each brick and houses with the trees in front are in fine clarity.
Wish you a nice weekend,

Dag John This long foreground constitutes a nice invitation to explore further the cleaniness of this handsome little village, masterly captured. Nevertheless I can not imagine you riding easily your electric bike on those uneven cobblestones!! Heel mooi fotowerk. Met vrindelijke groeten.

Hi John,
beautiful area, so clean and elegant -so well taken care about! The culmination is of course the lovely church in the centre of the image. Fantastic wide feeling with sky adding a nice touch as well.
Very attractive composition,

a special view with these trimmed trees and the robust shapes of the church tower ahead. nice view.

take care


Wonderful light and colours showing this lovely village at its best. Great idea to use the cobbled street as a foreground and a line leading into the photo.
Best wishes

Hi John.
Wonderful perspective of this deserted street, ideal those single-family houses that adorn the street along with the trees, ending with the tall tower in the background, very beautiful sky as a complement.
Sharpness, lighting, color, and the magnificent composition; they are all perfectly realized factors, in this beautiful image.
Well done. I like very much.
You have a good day.
Very best regards.

herkenbaar voor mij,
mooie compositie, lekker rustig mooie kleuren fraai werk John.
