Love this one Ruud, thought I'd already commented on it, but there must be one similar.  Love the 'grunginess' of this one, the colors, POV, everything!! congrats, fine composition, most sincerely, Gail

Ruud, I really like the detail in this with the layers of mud and rust and bits of color showing through. The shadows and reflections on the water certainly enhance the atmosphere.

Great shot. I like how the solidity of these old bicycles is undercut by their own wavy reflections in the water.

Another great slice-of-life in Holland... Does EVERYTHING go into the canals eventually? ;-)

This is beautiful in an abstract sort of way.  Well Done!

Very well seen and good composition. However, Ruud, I feel it is over sharpened and over saturated.
