About three weeks ago I posted photo’s of three of the male athletes that I photographed at the National Championship Fitness and Bodybuilding on November 2, 2014, the Netherlands.

Today, I finally catch up to give some of the female athletes their share of attention too – so here are three of the female athletes.

More photo’s made at this event you can see in my Demotix photo reportage .

With these two majestic deer statues, photographed in the woods of Palace Het Loo, I will end this little series about Palace het Loo. All these images were made in Crown Domain ‘het Loo’, Apeldoorn, the Netherlands, during a panel testing day with the Tamron 16-300 mm F3,5-6,3 DiII VC PZD zoom – organized by the Dutch photography Magazine ‘Focus’ . Hope you enjoyed checking them out!

And then there were the horses…

Two horse, a white and a brown one, in one of the meadows of the Royal Crown Domain ‘Het Loo’ – I experimented further with the Tamron 16-300 mm F3,5-6,3 DiII VC PZD zoom – from tele to wide angle, from very high to shallow depth of field… I’m quite happy with the result of this little series!
