Before I dive into the processing of all yesterday's pictures, let's open the ball with the thread for this Benelux Dyxum Meeting.
We had a nice day with a group of eight. It was very nice to meet again. Unfortunately our intended guide PieterB was unable to come, but fortunately there was another Pieter to set out a walking tour last minute.
The weather was as predicted: cold, cloudy, but dry.
For some finding the starting point was a bit of a challenge , but in the end, we all joined at the right place.
Thanks all for the pleasant company!

FS2 And then ofcourse the traditional group shot, oudside the church

Splendid start Fred!

It was indeed a a very nice day in good company and giving the temperature outside we didn't mind having to wait inside a little longer before everybody arrived

Lunch was good but dinner was a bit spartan, but that's because the Breda inhabitants crowded the good restaurants with advance reservations leaving no room for cold day tourists to get a good meal , but the Mexican fast-food we had to settle for in the end wasn't as bad as I feared.

I haven't started processing yet, but here's one other obligatory photo

p1: Setting up the group shot

It was a fun day.
Too bad I didn't bring gloves, cause it was @#$I*& cold.
Luckily I could lend some small bags that were chemically heating my hands.
Enough complaining. I wasn't in Breda too often, so it was a new experience.

I started using my Lensbaby Edge 80mm
The lens allows picking an in-focus-plane.
See what I mean

D01 Breda beguinage

The in-focus area runs from the bottom left corner to the small house on the right side.

And then some experimenting with it

D02 Horizontal


D03 Vertical


D04 diagonal: Small church on Beguinage territory


D05 bottom: Small room, just enough for one beguine




All ILCE-1 Lensbaby Edge 80mm @ F/2,8

HB02 is great advice, not only for Dyxum meetings
HB05 looks familiar
HB06 I like that lens, it makes me look skinny and long

D1 very nice effect the selective depth of focus
D5 well seen


Time for one "semi illegal" photo from me, wrong body/mount but I used a Minolta lens (M-mount)

p4: Hercules and the Nemean Lion in Park Valkenberg

Leica M246M + Minolta M-Rokkor 28/2.8

Lovely to have this armchair visit to Breda courtesy of you intrepid Dyxumers who obviously had to brave some cold.
The Grote Kerk ceiling looks magnificent, and I really like the selective focus of the Lensbaby in D01. Similar effect to using Tilt on a Tilt/Shift lens, but presumably with a huge size and weight saving.
D05 could have been a still life painting by one of the Dutch Masters.
Looking forward to lots more.

Thanks Joe.
It is a lot smaller and lighter than the average tilt/shift lens.

Harm, what they saw in HB03 was this:

D06


Photographing photographers is a Dyxum-Meeting-Hobby
So here are the others

D07 we had chicken for dinner


D08 Harm I didn't see the result yet


D09 For some inexplicable reason this is called The Red Bridge


all taken with ILCE-1 and 7020GMM2

I will turn to decent subjects in the next batch

D06 is not what you saw. It was the useless firehouse, I guess

HB07: And the result of D08? Pegelli!


HB08: Begijnhof panorama (cropped)

Domien, you really need to photograph photograpers taking photo's of other photographers (extending the Droste effect )

Harm, I really like the pano


p5: let's start at the beginning, what do you do when two participants need an hour to find the meeting place in the station and two others are still underway on the train? Well, you drink coffee and do silly wide-angle shoot-outs, what else

A7Rii + Voigtländer Super Wide Heliar 15/4.5 III


p6: In case you get lost on the canals of Breda there's always the lighthouse to save you



p7: He was happy to see us, but he didn't give us any candy



p8: A close up of Hercules and the Nemean Lion


p6 - p8: A7ii + Tamron 28-200 Di III RXD

More to come
