Bonsoir Joël,

Un beau format carré qui sied à cette belle présentation de cette église. J'aime l'équilibre entre les différentes composantes de l'architecture. Cadrage efficace également avec la perspective ouverte à droite sur l'environnement végétal.
Bonne soirée,
Roger

Bonsoir Joël
Un POV qui en donne et cette lumière en semi-contre jour rend bien les volumes de cette superbe église.L'ensemble est bien logé dans ce carré.
Bonne soirée
Amicalement

Bonsoir Joël
Encore une superbe découverte que tu as la gentillesse de partager avec nous. Une bonne image de cette église massive avec une prise qui nous permet d'apprécier la qualité de la pierre.
Bravo et bonne soirée.
Nicole

Bonsoir Joël,

Les arbres et les arbustes cadrent bien l'église. L'assemblage des deux photos permet de distinguer les détails et les couleurs de l'architecture de l'église Saint-Léonce. La qualité de la lumière rehausse la beauté des couleurs. Bonne soirée.

Hi Joel,

Ciao caro Joel,
eccellente uso dei mezzitoni di luce, che fanno contrastare in modo piacevole con il cielo luminoso questa deliziosa chiesetta. La sua architettura è veramente interessante, considerando soprattutto la sua antichità. Molto bravo nella gestione della luce sulle nuvole, senza alcuna sovraesposizione. Lavoro perfetto, bravissimo!
Ciao, buon mercoledì!
Paolo

Hi Joël,
This is a very beautiful church, with a very compact form. It is well positioned in the picture and, together with note and WS:s a superb TE contribution. I believe you tried many positions to find this angle, with this perfect triangular form of the church. Well observed,
Kind regards
Gunnar

Salut cher Joel

This church is striking, and so unique, we have nothing like it in Australia, although we have plenty of Gothic and neo-classical churches. I like how you have kept the mahority of the church ot the left of the frame and I like the tight square framing alot. Beautiful colours and sharpness too.

Amicalement et belle soiree
Lisa

Bonjour Joel,
very nice architecture of romanesque church. A beautiful sight. Too bad the decor inside is modest. Good composition and interesting WS also.
Have a nice day.
Aleksander

Joël
Ton inventaire de nos petites églises de campagne est infini. Chacune a son charme particulier et tu les photographies toujours de la meilleure des façons.
Amicalement

Bonjour, cher ami Joël,
la gestion magnifique de la lumière donne un grand résultat sur cette photo si bien cadrée, dans laquelle tu as efficacement capté la beauté architectonique de cette église romane, sous un jeu élégant de lumière et d'ombres, qui surélèvent ses formes, surtout celles de ses trois absides et le clocher.
Les nuages et le ciel complètent cette belle composition, parfaitement réalisée.
Bien amicalement,
Josep

A fine composition of this solid looking church built to withstand the vicissitudes of man and nature. The point f view is well chosen to show the massive architecture to good effect with the church being nicely placed off-centre. Excellent detail to be observed in the architecture.

Bonjour Joël,
J'aime le format carré pour cette composition, et met en évidence les trois éléments les plus importants de l'image.
Excellent point de vue, d'où l'église est impressionnante et la gestion de la lumière très bonne.
L'intérieur est simple et austère.
Amitiés,
Charo

Hi Aleks
A well detailed roofscape in good depth, nice tones and scale. Excellent high vantage point, I like the way you've orientated the row of houses into two sections and really guides the viewers into the picture. You have got the composition just right, lots to see and take in and the color contrast is superb with excellent touches of green to brighten up the scene. Fantastic image so much character and atmosphere of this exciting place. Great work, Congrats
Best regards

Bonjour Joel,

Tu as bien placé l'église dans l'image pour faire ressortit son environnement de végétation. Elle est très impressionnante et son architecture est remarquable.

Amicalement

Serge

Bonjour Joel
Très jolie l'architecture de cette église, bien cadrer et sous une très belle lumière, tu devrais faire un bouquin de tes photos d'églises de France , et un des château je suis certaine que ça marcherais :-)
Belle soirée

L'atmosphère qui se dégage de cette photo est assez surréaliste ! Est ce que c'est un HDR ???

En tout cas, c'est une réussite bravo !
