Bonjour, cher ami Serge,
Avec un ciel pareil certains peintres doivent manger leurs pinceaux !
De plus, la beauté de l'édifice et de son environnement sont magnifiquement mis en relief dans cette très belle réalisation.
Amitiés.
Philippe

Hello Serge,
Nice capture. Quite interesting and dramatic sky formations as well as colors.
Nice the wineyards in the foreground.
TFS and best regards

Bonjour Serge,

Le ciel est impressionnant et est un atout à la composition. Les arbres cadrent bien la chapelle. La prise de vue permet de voir une double perspective de l'architecture de la chapelle. Bonne journée.

Bonjour Serge
The atmosphere you created with this dramatic sky fits splendid the memorial character of this church. Excellent colour management and an excellent POV.
Well done. Have a nice day. Groet Rob

Bonjour Serge,

You have shown a beautifully composed photograph, the vines. leading to thewell placed church, beyond which is a most dramatic sky, made all the more effective by your use of Color Efex.
The scene and the mood are equally well captured.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Ciao Serge
la Marna rievoca dure battaglie e, con esse, tante vittime, di conseguenza il Memoriale, triste finale.
La tua foto è molto bella ed è bello anche il luogo, l'architettura è circondata da vigneti che rendono il tutto più piacevole.
Buon we
Carlo

Hello Sergio, Impressive chapel as a memorial of the battle of Marne. The chapel looks as an old Gothic cathedral. Beautiful composition with the vineyards. But the most eye catching is this sky.

Kind regrad s Malgo

Bonjour, mon ami Serge,

The sombre lighting suits the subject matter of the commemoration of the WWI Battle of the Marne through the Memorial and chapel. The peaceful fg vineyards add a nice fg. Tfs!

Salut Serge,
Bien valorisé ce mémorial avec un intéressant rendu pour la lumière et ce ciel encombré de nuages, excellente netteté par ailleurs.

Bonjour Serge,

We get almost a lovely painting with the church as real eye catcher.
Also the vine yard and much green makes everything pleasant.
An excellent composition.
Very well done, TFS.

Hi Serge,
A beautifully composed image with the lines of vines leading the eye to the chapel. The green contrasts well with the grey sky and creates an atmosphere in keeping with the subject.


Regards,

Richard

Bonjour Serge,
A really beautiful photo of this memorial, the dark and threatening clouds make such a fantastic backdrop. The vines make a really good foreground as well. Great light management and sharpness.
