A very late afternoon attractive light to capture to this beautiful castle. Although, partly hidden by the trees, your point of view displays the lovely architecture to good effect. Very good colours and sharpness.

Bonjour Joël,

Les arbres cadrent bien le château. la prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de l'architecture du château de Montreuil-Bellay. La bonne luminosité fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journée.

Bonjour Joel

La lumière semble venir de dessous.Est-ce un éclairage artificiel.Le point de vue à travers les arbres est intéressant.

Amicalement

Hi Joel,
A very picturesque castle. Also the artificial ambienthal lights are making it more mysterious. Well seen, good capture.

Bonjour Joel
Un cadrage des plus naturel avec le feuillages qui laisse un joli aperçu sur le château, le WS 2 est intéressant il montre l'entièreté du château, dommage que le ciel n'est pas comme sur celle ci, par contre j'aime beaucoup la vue d'ensemble sur le WS 1,
Amitiés

Bonsoir Joël,
Un beau château et les grands qui ressemble à un conte de fées. Jolie lumière et la perspective unique avec les arbres.
J'aime beaucoup la photo où la perspective est plus large environnement, méritaient d'être en photo principale.
Amicalement,
Charo

Buonasera Joel
la luce artificiale che illumina i posti come questo è sempre molto spettacolare, direzionata e tesa a far risaltare al meglio la struttura. Ma il contrasto con la luce fredda di questo momento serale è forse il pregio più bello di questa tua splendida inquadratura. Il gioco del vedo-non vedo che fanno gli alberi è un'altra buona intuizione.
buonanotte

Bonsoir Joel. Large, imposing and impressive is all that I can think of when I view this huge cluster of castles. Excellent composition and it must have been quite a challenge to capture this within your camera lens. Thanks for the well written notes as well. This is one of the best of castles that I have seen. Well done. Regards, Roger

Joël
Superbe vraiment, quelle merveilleuse lumière délicatement rosée!J'aime beaucoup ta photo mais je crois que j'adore encore plus la vue plus éloignée avec l'église.
Amicalement

Bonjour Joël,
La photo de ce château est très belle. J'aime cette impression qui est donnée par le POV, un château de conte de fées qui vient de surgir de la forêt comme par enchantement.
Amicalement
Jacques

Bonjour Joël
Les parties chaudes des murs de cette forteresse créent un bon accord avec le bouquet végétal du premier plan et ce ciel gris bleuté.
Bonne journée
