I was in Holland (where I lived for many years) for a few days for work. I had never taken pictures at Kinderdijk, where many traditional windmills are still preserved. At eight in the evening, I saw it was going to be a beautiful sunset and jumped in the car to get there in time.

With my tripod in the water and my feet almost wet, I took several good shots during this sunset. It was hard to choose, but I like the golden glow of this one.

Post processing : only slight crop and curves.

This image is simply sheer beauty. Outstanding.

Very nice golden tones and sillohuettes. I like the composition with the reflections in the water. Some people might think it's too dark, but on my monitor anyway, it gives a great feel to the shot. Nicely done.

Just Brilliant from the detail of the Lilly Pads in the foreground to the beautiful whispy sky. (10)

This is simply one the best sunset images that I have ever seen. Composition and exposure are perfect. What more can I say except 10/10. Awesome work.

Ik woon mijn hele leven al in Nederland en ik ben eigenlijk nog nooit in Kinderdijk geweest. Stom he?

I love this kind of silhouette. The only distraction for me is the broken reflection on the water from the windmills blades. Still one of my top three though. 9

Elegant photograph. The color of the sunset gives it an old-fashioned feel which goes well with the subject. Fine work.
