Bonjour, cher ami Joël,
Que dire devant une telle photo, sinon une admiration sans faille !
Tu as toujours à l'esprit de nous faire découvrir ce patrimoine avec respect et passion.
Mille mercis.
Amitiés.

Salut Joël!
C'est un endroit très beau!
C'est une photo vraiment intéressante, agréable et très attrayante!
La netteté, la gestion de la lumière, les couleurs, le pdv choisi, le pp, les contrastes, le format horizontal, l'encadrement noir & blanc et la compo sont excellents!
J'adore surtout ce pont ancien-là!
Merci du partage!
Amitiés,
Neyvan

Bonjour Joel ,
Une fois de plus , un très bel endroit , et un pont très pittoresque . Et toujours cet étonnant effet 3D .
Amicalement

Hello Joël,
A fine composition of this peaceful village joined by its ancient bridge. The framing vegetation and the river draw the viewer into the image and help create a good sense of depth. I like the soft light and attractive natural tones. A very well presented composition. Bravo!

Hi Joel,
a picturesque view once more, the composition of the photo is very nice, superb lights and POV, great view, Tfs! Have a nice day! Kellemes napot kívánok!
György

Bonjour Joël,

La prise de vue dirige mon regard sous l'arche du pont et ensuite vers les montagnes ce qui donne de la profondeur à la composition. Elle permet aussi de voir les détails et les couleurs de l,architecture du pont. La bonne luminosité met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Pierre

Bonjour Joel,

Les vieux villages et les vieilles routes de France valent généralement le voyage. Ici, ce pont est magnifique. Le cours d'eau guide notre regard dans l'image qui résume bien que les petites routes valent 100 fois les autoroutes.

Amicalement

Serge

Joel,
This is a nice shot of this great stone bridge. Your composition is nice with the stream leading the eye through the bridge while framing the scene with the nice architecture on both sides. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has fine sharpness.
TFS,
Asa

Bonjour Joel!
Pretty pastel colors. It is interesting that in France, made of stone colors shown in pictures, how special. I have not seen these elsewhere. The bridge reminds Mostasri the bridge, but it is not surprising, because at that age when they were built, structurally it is reported, a sufficiently stable design.
Sincerely,
csaba

Bonsoir Joël,

Hi Joël,
A very beautiful picture! A motive that would be very good also for a painter. Beautiful and very attractive colours. You have indeed chosen a very good position to achieve this perfect composition.

Hi Joel,
Good frame to show an old stone bridge connecting people living at both sides, I like all these local houses that built on the bank of river, a relaxing view and just like a paint, full with poetic flavour too, thanks for sharing a beautiful old village.
Ally

Hello Joël,

I have to comment on this charming village, a place like taken from another century!
And of course the fine old bridge is what first grabs my attention, a wonderful piece of masonry...
The place looks like a fine mix of old and new, and places like this are often great places to live!

Greetings,
Pablo -

Bonjour Joël,
Ce vieux pont est d'une grande élégance, les anciens savaient construire solide et beau, la preuve ! J'aime les couleurs et la lumière sur un paysage simple mais beau.
