I love bar-tography. (Not to be confused with BARTography, which I also love.)

This windmill was built in 1892 in the province of Groningen and was used as polder draining mill. It was dismantled at this place and rebuilt by Holland-Amerkalijn. It was handed then to the Keukenhof. Totally rebuilt on 4th April 1957. In 2008, the windmill has been part of Keukenhof for 51 years
Deze molen, gebouwd in 1892 in de prov. gronigen, werd gedemonteerd , op deze plaats herbouwd en door de "Holland Amerkalijn" aan de "Keukenhof".
Where Keukenhof is situated now, was a hunting area in the 15th century. Herbs for the kitchen of the castle of Jacoba van Beieren were also collected here; hence the name Keukenhof (Kitchen Garden).
The current park was a section of the sizeable estate of Slot Teylingen, with beautiful untamed bushes and dunes. After the decease of Jacoba van Beieren Keukenhof fell into the hands of rich merchant families. Baron and baroness Van Pallandt invited landscape architects J.D. and L.P. Zocher, designers of the Amsterdam Vondelpark, to make a design for the garden around the castle. This design, in the English landscape style, has always been the basis of Keukenhof.

Nothing but the sound of water while enjoying a typical sunset. Mountains in the background are located in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The cities of Gisenyi in Rwanda and Goma in DRC are located just behind the hill on the right side.

It is at the northern terminus of the Grand Canyon Railway, which was formerly a branch of the Santa Fe. The hotel is one of only a handful of Harvey House facilities that are still in operation, and is an example of National Park Service Rustic architecture." Source: Wikipedia.

This is going to sound like weird commentary, but I think that the SOOC version is technically a better image. The sky is blue. The plants don't look underwatered.
What I like about the processed version is that there's a more tangible mood to it. I worry that I don't focus enough on technical proficiency, but then when I do I don't like the resulting images.
In short, it's a bit of a crapshoot at this point for me.
And here's a fun note - f/3.5. Because I am an idiot. If I could go back in time, I'd have stopped it down to somewhere in the f/16 range, I think. I'm amazed the image didn't suffer from that lack of oversight, but I'm not complaining.
Sorry to upload and run. It's been busy for me, as I'm sure it's been for many of you. Hope everyone is well.
There should be enough for everyone.
This is a typical tulip field at the keukenhof in the Netherlands.
