Still too busy at work to get out at the moment, so another older shot from a few years ago:

The cloud, flock and lone bird make it stand out from otherwise ubiquitous windmills. Great color too. And, with the horizon in the middle, no perspective distortion Wink

The photo is very clean with vibrant colors, great sky and impeccable framing but the birds (ducks?) are the the key element.

This is pure Kitsch, but very well mastered. I am fond of it Smiley

It is very nicely done, and yes, kitsch, and yes the waterfowl make the shot, but without the other elements, both content, composition & light, it wouldn't be as good. I'd imagine the Netherlands tourist board would make good use of such an image

Perfect photo! The composition, the lighting, the bird in the foreground and the ones flying and  the clouds, absolutely beautiful.

This is pure Kitsch...

I guess I myself have been doing kitsch for so long that I forgot that's what it is Wink

 Shocked Oh, this is so great. A mass-outing. I'm not alone with my hidden shame! A couple of well skilled photographers confess to kitsch. I will preserve this thread until I've passed.

Thanks all.

Kitsch takes a lot of work to produce. To finally get that image required 12 trips to the same place over a period of 3-4 months. With it being a 3 hour round trip, there was a lot of patience and practice that finally resulted in that photograph.

Having produced that one, I haven't been back. I don't think I can improve on it further.

Even the first windmill's blades lend themselves to the perspective. Well done. Love the birds.

Kitsch or not, I don't care, I mean how many of us would walk past this photographic opportunity?

Definitely a potential magazine front cover I think. The vibrant colours, content, framing and reflections etc, all fit together nicely and make this image a very pleasant thing to look at indeed Grin

A magazine cover? I suppose someone would splash titles & the like over it. I'd just put a simple line underneath a poster-sized print - "Visit the Netherlands". That would do it.

A simple "Come." would be enough. It's obvious that you're not invited to come to Scotland. Grin
