Hello from The Netherlands

Hello Pentaxians,


I live in the North of The Netherlands (Groningen city).

I have been using Pentax gear since 2009 when I bought my first Pentax camera (a K20D to be precise with a 18-55 and a 50-200 lens).

Normally I take pictures (photographs) during holidays. Since I started I acquired a Sigma 10-20, a Tamron 17-50 F2.8 and some manual focus lenses from the old days.

Om my wishlist there is a 70-200 F2.8, a true macro lens and a Sigma 150-500 would be nice as well.

Last week I was in The Hague (seat of the Dutch government) and shot some pictures of the Binnenhof. Hope you like them.


Cheers,
Michiel Kerkhofs

Welcome to the forum, a good set of images showing the incongruous mix of architectural styles.

Have been looking from the sidelines for a while now. Was finally ready to take the plunge and register.

I really liked to portray the difference in architectural styles. Glad you liked it.

Incredible photos! How do you like the Sigma 10-20mm? I have one and it's my go-to lens. Welcome.

Thank you for your nice words.

The Sigma 10-20 is mostly used (by me) for architecture when I want to fully capture a building. I know that it can be used for landscape photography but have struggled to catch a nice foreground object in the frame as well. So I don't use the Sigma as often as could be.

Hello Michiel,

Welcome!

I am impressed by your introductory photos! I have visited The Hague several times on business, but never viewed the Binnenhof in such elegance. Hope to see more of your pictures.

Welkom Michiel! Now, looking at your lovely photos of the grachte, I think I'll have to head out and dig a ditch outside my house to fill with water!

Thanks Mark for your kind words.

The water shown in the pictures is not a Gracht (canal). It's a pond (albeit a pretty large one ;-))

Aha! Well, lovely setting, I think.

These all look professional. The border is a nice touch. Well done!

Thank you for your comment. I did not know if the borders would add or subtract to the images.

How did you notice my post? After all it has been a while since I started this thread. Just curious ;-)
