In springtime Voorburg is a wonderful place to be. The Old Church is catching light and the big ol’ tree in front of it is shattering the light on top of the church roof. The challenge was to maintain transparency of the leafs while on the other hand the leafs contrasted the sky to a slightly darker tone. I kept city hall ‘Swaensteyn’ and the Herenstraat to the left quite abstract in order to stay focused on the tree and the church being the dominant factor on the right.
