You know Erik, you have a true admirer of such lighting writing this comment! Love it for a BIG like.

(ps, I am visiting your city of Amsterdam for a few hours shortly. The weather forecast is bad and so I do not expect to get such pictures as this?)

All the Best, Herb

dit lijkt toch waarachtig net een schilderij Erik. Schitterend gedaan, ook heel beschaafd zodat ie al erg oud lijkt....

Groetjes, Christien.

Thank a lot Herb I loved played around with with these layers and textures and blending them together in different ways. Your big like is higly appreciated!

I hope your day(s) in Amsterdam will be fine and will keep my fingers crossed so the weather will be nice. Perhaps some night shots can do the trick they can be pretty with the extra Christmas lights on.

Ben ook best wel beschaafd hoor.... as ik mijn best een beetje doe ;-). Een leuk experiment met een eindresultaat waar ik zelf ook erg tevreden was. Deze foto was origineel erg licht met die felle reflecties op het water. Zo in deze meer gouden sfeer wordt het allemaal wat gemoedelijker.

Best regards, Vrolijke groetjes, Erik

Very nice monochrome image with the 'dreamy' effect given by the photographer!
