Selected and commented Vijfhoek Jopen Festival Photos

The titles of the photos are given by the jury.

1. Lybil Ber, Playing with the sun beams in Jopenkerk at Haarlem

Excellent contrast. The dusty aspect of light rays highlights the clarity of the more darker zone. Mystical atmosphere. Top pic.

2. Danijel Photography, B/W pic of two people under arched tunnel

Haarlem Photo Club Vijfhoek Jopen Festival Photo Walk 2014

 Nice perspective and work on lines. The contrast is also interesting (contrejour for one of the personae and full light for the other which is smiling). Inspiring picture.

3. Paul Harhen, Child with Lamp or sign post

 Beautiful shot of this child. Well caught. Expressive eyes. The colors could be reworked (Contrast is too low, and colors too dull). Balanced framing.

4. Agnieszka, Perspective shot of a bar with glasses and beer taps

 Haarlem Photo Club Vijfhoek Jopen Festival Photo Walk 2014

 Very nice combination of perspective and lightening. I would have increased the contrast a little during processing.

5. Lybil Ber, In a bar, discussion between bar-woman and customer

Haarlem Photo Club Vijfhoek Jopen Festival Photo Walk 2014

Smooth lighting that provides a sensation fo warmth. It appears like if there is a light bubble around the two personae. Very soothing.

6. Paul Harhen, old person eating cake in the sun

Nice daily life shot, where the viewer can wonder where the mind of this elderly person is wandering. Good framing and depth of field.

7. Paul Harhen, Plants rising in the sky

Haarlem Photo Club Vijfhoek Jopen Festival Photo Walk 2014

Very strong contrast for a picture that allows the viewer to see the multiple nuances of brown via transparency. Feels like looking up from the ground of an alient forest. To improve it, I would have taken a higher f, and tried to avoid the green trees in the background (low left)

8. Paul Harhen, Dancers

Nice play with lines.

9. Lybil Ber, Sky and Building
