:thumbsup: Like #3, with the huge tree at the sides!

Nice Holland pics!
Thanks exhibitj. I like the contrast between the dark trees and the colourful sky/house.

I love number 1. Perfect capture of Holland imo.


Number 3 would be perfect too if the foreground's grass is considerably lightened to match the background. I love number 3's composition. Here's a quick interpretation. I hope you don't mind.Let me know if you want it removed. Looking at number 3 really reminds me of a lazy noon by the river whilst listening to jazz standards.. Beautiful.



Good job otherwise.I love holland.

Great pics there mate, thanks for sharing. Like #1, #3 and #5. Composition is great.

But for #5, the washed out look from the waterpainting effect isn't quite there, seems more of a washed out old photo than a waterpainting. My personal preference is for a crisper image or a stronger water painting effect.
