Don't think this family was digging for gold; should be food, for themselves or for the fishes. In the distance you see 'de Zeelandbrug'.
Built in the mid sixties; at the time it was the longest bridge in Europe; by today standards this two lane bridge is pretty outdated.
Thanks for looking and being here.

Lots of detail and interest in this shot so well worth a vote, but I do think it would benefit from cropping to concentrate the eye on the main point of interest. You haven't enabled modifications so I can't post the version I did of this to show you what I mean, but if you want to see my version, just message me with your e-mail address and I will send it to you then delete your e-mail address to protect your privacy.

I like this picture very much and would be interested to see any modification work that Lynne could do to it.

Many thanksl for your comments and for your votes; as with **** I am also curious to see what modification work Lynne had done with it. I realize the small portion the human element has in the mainly landscape matter. Didn't even attempt to search for a crop that would emphasize the searching people party though realizing they are a very important part of the image or maybe the most important; I mean to say: leave them out and the image becomes far less interesting. In order to make their presence felt I uploaded the image as large as could be by making the image panoramic.

Nice shot. Its not worthwhile to upload a mod, as we are not allowed to upload a pano as a mod, it would be way smaller - so wont look right at all. A small amount of cropping off the left would shift the family right onto a third, if you wanted to use that approach, and it would still be a nice pano.

Thanks Lynne, I've opened your mod in PS and it bears fruit; the point of interest is more in compliance with the rule of thirds, the horizon is prob a two degrees more horizontal and the fluid frame is well made and gives a pleasant presentation; yesterday evening worked myself on the image again to try and find a sensible crop that lifts the party to prominence; cropping to an image without the water is boring and gives a flat image; including some portion of the water is better but still stays unsatisfactory; though a crop is already a sort of manipulation some more drastic working was needed to make the selected crop work for me and you actually get a different image which I'll post in a minute as a new image. What I have done? In short: with the gradient tool manipulated the exposure and sharpness or better, the blurring - then added grain; the party keeping mainly untouched but dreamliking, painting or surreallizing the remaining landscape element.
