    We spent a day at the Castle of Arcen and its gardens in the south of The Netherlands. It is a great place for a walk, with themed gardens in all sorts and sizes (and a small castle and koi pond as well..:))

    I took the Fuji X-E1 and the 18-55 (my only lens for the system anyway), I experimented a little with the film simulation setting so it is a mixed bag, hope you like a few anyway.

  7. Digging that second one as well, although they all are nice.

    Additionally, that is a lot of Koi bunched up together in the fifth one.

    Love the bamboo, love the second shot although I'd like the focal plane to be brought closer to the camera. The symmetrical framing is right on the money, however.
