Back in comment mode today.

Pic 38/1 - that's a great panoramic shot, and it looks like the Voigtlander 12/5.6 has really helped getting the whole room in frame. It must be quite a large room.

Pic 38/2- nicely balanced composition


pic 38/3 - you always do flower shots well, and this is no exception. Framed well and good detail.

Pic 39/1 - Nicely shot, the shield design adds a good element.

Pic 39/2 - Excellent- I like the effect of the bridge and its reflection in the water.

Pic 39/3 - I like these, the splitting of the chestnuts gives it a bit more interest.

Thanks Kai, your comments precisely reflect why I chose these ones for the weeks 38 and 39


On to week 40, where we spent most of the time travelling with a camper along the Mosel, in the area north of Trier. The weather was gorgeous and we made many walks along the flanks of the river and I have way too many photo's to choose from for this week. But I'll post some more of this beautiful area in the Oktoberfest threads as well as other threads.


Week 40 - Architecture

A typical German timber framed house, quite a narrow one in this case

Week 40 - Landscape

A view towards Lösnich and the wine covered fields on the other side of the river

Week 40 - Macro/Closeup

It was September when I last commented on your thread, Pieter. For the updates since then I rather enjoyed the shot of Castle Boeckenborgh - a clear record of an important local building.

In week 38 the European parliament is nicely recorded and the panorama technique works well to achieve a neo-Cinemascope effect. (It may even be 21:9?) I like the curved lines in the ceiling.

In week 39 Castle Vrieselhof gets a symmetrical treatment and the chestnuts macro bristles with anticipation of the release of the chestnuts.

And in week 40 I am intrigued by the timber-framed house. It seems very high for the floor area - was it once part of a crowded street? The power lines appear to be holding it up.

Thanks for the comments Howard, much appreciated!

The European Parliament photo was cropped as large as the combined image allowed and is indeed close to 21:9 but not exactly. I didn't want to waste any pixels unneeded for a fixed aspect ratio, I went for all that was available.

You're remark about the power lines made me smile, I hadn't seen it that way but indeed for such a small floor area (the ground floor being the smallest) you can't avoid seeing them as guylines . Don't know if the streets were ever really crowded there, but they were narrow so maybe the small ground floor has something to do with not restricting carts moving through the small alleys.


Week 41 - Architecture

One of the new bridges across the King Albert Canal

Thanks Lee! Much appreciated and it's nice to find out that the photos here are viewed by more than the three last remaining participants in the 150 challenge.

Week 42 - Architecture

The air inlet tower of Fort de Malonne, built ~1930 in the modernisation of this fort in the interbellum (interwar period)

A7Rii + Tamron 28-200 Di III RXD

This tower was connected with a tunnel to the ventilators in the fort ~500 meter away from here which were used to be able to put the fort under overpressure in case of a gas attack.


Week 42 - Landscape

A wet woodscape in the local forest

A7ii + M-Elmar 90/4 (LTM)


Week 42 - Macro/Closeup

The lock in the entry gate of Fort de Malonne, normally closed but just opened one day for a small group of photographers

Week 45 - Architecture

Castle Borrekens, near Vorselaar

A7Rii + Tamron 28-200 Di III RXD, LR pano of 4 handheld landscape oriented photos



Week 45 - Landscape

Farmland with "fourteen chapels" in the background

A7Rii + Tamron 28-200 Di III RXD

14 kapellekens (=14 chapels) built in 1827 by a farmer to thank God for a miraculous healing of a nasty wound in his leg. I consists (fltr) of a large Mariachapel, 12 small chapels with a sculpture depicting the way of the cross and a slightly larger 14th chapel with a crucifix. It is still maintained by the local parish, so in a good state considering its age.



Week 45 - Macro/Closeup

You've been very busy Pieter, and I apologise for not being more diligent with my responses.

Anyway, here are some comments:

43/1 (Balconies) I really like this, you've got some interesting shapes and lines and captured them well. I also like the black and white conversion. All in all, everything comes together very well.

43/2 (Park Hallehof) Another good shot- the trees and branches form a good natural frame and the stream gives a good leading line. Again, another well balanced and thoughtful composition.

44/3 (Macro/Closeup) A mushroom in good condition and photographed, I presume, in natural light. I'm intrigued you used your Tamron 28-200 for this, as I would not normally consider this a macro lens.

45/1 (Castle) - a splendid image set in its natural environment. It was already a striking image before the reflection in the water is considered, but that makes it even more impressive. Well done.

I am wondering how many castles and forts there are around you, as you seem to be able to find them easily!

Thanks Kai, the Tammy works well close-up, depending on focal length set somewhere from 1:3 to 1:4 (actually the largest magnification at 28 mm) and this mushroom was large enough to fill the frame.

And the balconies is not really a B&W conversion, it was taken with a monochrome camera so I couldn't make a colour image from this capture.

There's indeed many castles in my area, allthough a lot are just big homes built in the 19th century by rich people to look like castles, but they were never intended (or used) for any defense purposes. This one is different, it was a real castle with the oldest parts dating back to 1270.

My gosh I have fallen behind in commenting, so here's a catchup from week 41:

41: In #1 the bridge looks heroic from this angle and I'm always amused in Belgium and Netherlands at how big canals are. In England in a few steps you are across them whereas here (#2) the far bank seems 100m + away. The flower in #3 coincides wth a similar treatment of a different flower by Kai.

42: I love the rusty detail of #3

43: Could there be a starker contrast between the brick and iron sharpness of the balconies in #1 and the organic, prickly sharp find of the chestnuts on the forest floor?

44: A welcome return of fungi

45: Castle Borrekens (#1) is a sun-dappled beauty; nice inclusion of the reflections too. There's effective use of white vignetting in the flower close up (#3); it's not used as much these days, I think. It helps draw attention to the central white area of the flower.

46: The ceiling of the Grote Kerk in Breda is dramatic (#1), and I wonder if the arches might be cropped out? And nice rendering of the subtle colours and bokeh in #3.
