First official competition for for my daughter with her new horse Duchess this afternoon. Not a high score so enough to learn for her and her horse BFF. For me a great opportunity to practice my photography skills.

World Press Photo Disqualifies 20% of Finalists
I'm guilty myself. To spice and clean up my photos, I tone, crop and vignette them and sometimes even remove an unwanted tree branch with Lightroom and/or Photoshop. According to World Press Photo this will result in a disqualification of your submission. I agree, the photos submitted to the World Press Photo jury aren't fashion or glamour shots and need to be as pure as possible, even if you can make it more aesthetically pleasing by fixing some visual annoyances. 

Look at the winners submissions:

Altijd gedacht dat de meeste professionele gepubliceerde foto's wel bewerkt waren, criteria zijn bij WPP dan toch anders.

RidNacs, invaluable freeware
One of my most used Windows utilities is RidNacs or Scandir backwards ;-).

Today one of my development servers was running out of diskspace and I could easily pinpoint the culprit, a folder with 30gigs of log files. If you don’t already know this very useful freeware utility, download it and see for yourself and drill down on folders with (obsolete) files that are clogging up your harddrive.

Een klant belde ooit eens op, toen ik nog op support zat... En klaagde dat het systeem zo traag werd... Die heb ik ook even laten kijken... En toen ik opmerkte dat ie een log bestand had en dat dat weleens de oorzaak kon zijn... had ie de dubbele bodem van die opmerking toch niet gelijk door... ;-)

Full Of Energy
Beautiful sunny day in Holland today and a great opportunity to spend the day with my 16 year old daughter and her horse Duchess. She has this 13 year old horse now for two weeks and this mare is full of energy. Next week will be a ride in the adjacent woods with the dedicated bridle path.

Dutch
Prachtige dag vandaag en een mooi  moment om met mijn dochter Fleur en haar merrie Duchess naar buiten te gaan. Het beestje zit vol met energie en als het weer zo blijft, gaan we volgende week proberen om in het naastgelegen bos op het ruiterpad met haar te wandelen. Ze is nog wat angstig door de drukte op de manege. Duchess was een kleine stal gewend.

End Of Winter
Another month to go for Spring to begin at this side of the hemisphere. Love the cold winter air with the brownish yellow shades of the foliage.
