Luc, I prefer number one, because there is a bit more colour!

You're right about that Mike. I prefer #2 because of it's symmetry and balance but to each his own that's why I posted two versions ;)

I can see the merit for both images. I actually prefer ,#1 for the leading lines of the pillars in the top half of the image.

Beautifully clean images - no preference for one over the other, they both stand on their merits.

      Most of the times Friday is my day off and when the weather is ok I visit interesting Dutch cities. Last Friday I went to Kampen, located on a peninsula near the river IJssel and lake IJsselmeer. Kampen is an excellent example of a small Dutch city with a nice historic (medieval) city centre. The inhabitants of Kampen are rightly proud of their city. They were also very friendly, like they stopped their car and waited patiently when I stood on the middle of the road to shoot a photograph. Try that in Amsterdam ... Kampen has put a lot of effort in restoring old buildings and wall paintings making for great photo opportunities!   All images Fujifilm X100.   1.    2.

      Some of you may know or have noticed I have a kind of project to visit interesting Dutch cities, for fun and photography.
      Last Friday the weather was again unusually warm and sunny, I guess we have to "thank" climate change for that.
      For me a reason to visit another city on my list. If possible I do this by public transport, mostly by train.
      This time my goal was the small city of Schiedam, right next to Rotterdam.
      Schiedam turned out to have some beautiful (lovingly restored) canals, distilleries and warehouses and is famous for it's centuries of jenever ("Dutch gin") production.
      For this purpose the world's highest windmills were built. This because they were located in the city so to catch enough wind they needed to be very high.
       
      This series all shot with an Olympus E-M10II + Olympus 12-40mm f2.8

      The three mages in this topic were shot during a recent balloon ride. Please click 3x on the image to enlarge and view the details on image 1 and 2.
       
      View on my hometown Amersfoort which is located in the centre of Holland. In fact, the isolated church tower (98,33m) in the middle/right is the official geographical centre of Holland. The church which was attached to the town was destroyed by a gun powder explosion in 1787. The medieval layout of the old city centre is clearly visible. I live in one of the red roofed houses in the top/middle of the image.
       

       
      Amersfoort is at the border of the so-called Randstad, the highly populated area in the West of Holland consisting of the cities Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht. Once you cross the A28 highway visible in the middle of the image below you enter beautiful rural areas which are great for my bicycle trips.
       

       
      The balloons are landed on grasslands such as these. The farmers are mostly ok with this, as long as nothing is damaged. The cows and dogs are slightly disturbed by the balloons, especially from the sound of the heaters.

      Two images shot (handheld, shutter speed 1/8sec) with a Samyang fisheye lens of the new Delft railway station.
      The ceiling is a reference to the world-famous Delfts Blauw pottery. With some imagination it's visible in these images.
