I've waited so much time before publishing this picture because I didn't know what to write in the description. Today I've just realised this is one of those cases where a picture is worth a thousand words! I hope you'll like it as I liked so much being there :-)

Fantastic photo. By way of a description, simply say where it was taken. Some of us have never had the good fortune to travel to the Netherlands. Thank you for posting and the description.

Marvelous, but wondering why this shows up twice in the posts of finalists for Image of the year? Hope you are getting the correct total of votes.

This is a fantastic photo, but unlike jimhelmick, I HAVE had the good fortune to travel to the Netherlands, (Dutch mother), yet I never saw this place, it must be new!

Not bad, I've been here and I would like to offer some suggestions. You missed a little bit of the trees behind the blue house on the right despite erasing the power lines. The saturation is quite dim for such a spectacular view. Take a look at my versions of this shot and see what you think.

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in a very peaceful neighbourhood of Groningem, Netherlands.
Time
I arrived in this place in the early afternoon and the atmosphere was already magic, but I was sure I could have gotten more if I had had more patience. In fact, I spent the rest of the afternoon in the city centre and went back there for sunset.
Lighting
The only efficient way to have a different picture from the dozens I've seen of this place was the kind of light. In here, I was very lucky because the sun setting from the side turned the clouds red, adding an extra magic aspect and a different mood from the other pictures. I must say I still love the others as well!
Equipment
I've used a Nikon D750, my beloved Nikon 16-35, a tripod naturally and a Lee 6 stops filter (Little Stopper)
Inspiration
I had this picture in my mind months before going there. I saw so many awesome photos of this place that they convinced me to have a trip to the Netherlands just because I wanted to go here. I wanted to feel in person the feeling of being in a tale.
Editing
My post processing workflow is almost the same for every picture. I love colourful and contrasty images and in order to reach the goal, I use Color Efex PRO. For basic adjustments like exposure, white balance and lens distortions I use Lightroom. For other small enhancements like color separation, I like using Photoshop curves.
In my camera bag
In my Lowepro bag I always have my Nikon D750, my two lenses, a Nikon 16-35 for the 90% of my landscapes photos and a Nikon 24-70 for all the rest. I can't separate from my Lee filters. I have a Little Stopper, a Big Stopper, and three GND soft filters (1, 2 and 3 stops). I use very often a very cheap but useful stuff called Triggertrap. It's a dongle plus a mobile app that I use for controlling long exposures.
Feedback
The most important aspect of landscape photography is the quality of the light. You can have a wonderful view and can be the bet with composition, but if you shoot in the middle of the day, it's likely you'll have a decent image to show to your friends, but not an outstanding one. Keep in mind, if you want to surprise with your landscapes, you need to wake up very early in the morning for sunrises and have your dinner in the late evening, because during the sunset you'll be outside with your camera.
