beautiful open view, it has a really fresh feel to it and the branches and twigs framing the foreground add a nice sense of depth.
I think you have succeeded in showing that Holland does have some height here, despite it's stereotypical 'flat' image. Maybe a slight inccrease in saturation and contrast would enhance it a little. i will try to do a w/s if i can later (am at work at the moment!)

Almost a landscape in Wallonia but you taken in Netherlands Limburg, very lovely area, but very difficult for bikers.
You show us a excellent landscape picture with a nice composition and misty atmosphere above the hills, very well done.
Greetings from Flanders,

nly a hill, but from this perspective one could think you standing on top of a mountain. Great POV with a wonderfful view far into the landscape. I love the fresh green spring grass, nature seems to wake up from hibernation.
Hi Niek, no it does not work for me. I can understand your frustration with this location as it would be difficult to build a strong composition. I don't think the light was in your favor either. Hard to say not being there what I would do myself, I would probably go looking for a suitable tree or go in close with ultra wide to built an interesting foreground. Certainly under better light casting long shadows would help the mood. Regards Steve.

wonderful landscape photo with great composition and colors.
Personally I think that if you want to make hills/mountains look more hilly/mountainous don't weight them down with so much sky. I'd make this 2/3 land and 1/3 sky. I'd stick with just the center section without the twigs and branches on either side. I don't feel there is enough of them for effective framing. As they are they don't add to the sense of distance. I'm not sure that distance was your goal anyway. I think it was the hills. If that is so then eliminate as much as you can that doesn't help tell that story. I like the two sloping hills forming a nice off center Vee with the trees and that "orangey" roof(?) as a focal point.
Thanks for sharing yet another image of your peaceful, gentle landscape and nice soft Dutch colors.

An attractive, slowly rolling landscape is captured!
What I appreciate most is the fresh colour of green, telling the story of spring...
Well framed and with good details, fine lines and nicely framed!
