A view of the main portal of the Collegiate Church in Saint-Émilion.

Building started at the beginning of the 12th century for the Community of Cannons of Saint Augustine. It continued until the 16th century. Today it is the parish church of the commune.

It presents certain characteristics of the Perigordian Romanesque, such as the two cupolas on pendants which vault the second and third bays. However, most of the architectural elements visible today are related to the Gothic style.

Bonjour, cher Stephen,
Voir une église ouverte devient de plus en plus rare.
Merci de nous faire profiter de ce moment.
L'architecture ne manque pas d'intérêt ni de beauté.
Art primitif roman (sauf erreur).
Belle composition.

Hello Stephen

The open gate is a nice sight. I am always saddened by locked gates and deserted churches. Good sharpness and perspective with the people adding scale and animating the scene. Tfs!

Hello Stephen,
You used the portal well to frame the view of the interior of the church. The benches and the visitors lead my eyes nicely up to the stained glass windows. I like the contrast between the ochre stones outside and their greenish tone inside.
Kind regards,

Bonjour Stephen,

La présence des gens anime la scène. La longueur de la nef crée de la profondeur. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails de la grille et de l'intérieur de l'église Collégiale à Saint-Émilion. La lumière environnante rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Hello Stephen,

Best regards,


Bonjour Stephen,

C'est assez rare de prendre l'intérieur d'une église en photo à partir du portique et au travers d'une grille, mais l'effet est réussi et tu as profité d'une belle lumière dans la nef.

Hello Stephen,
I really like the perspective and the framing you used to capture this old church. The lighting was excellent and I very much like the soft green tones around the walls of the church. The window in the background was also well and clearly captured.

Ciao Stephen
le differenti tonalità di luce rendono attraente la foto, mentre le persone all'interno ci mostrano le dimensioni dell'architettura.

Hello Stephen,
Good choice of POV with the iron gate and the view through to the length of the church's hall. Complementary with the next post with an indoor's picture.

People at the aile and the baby-carriage at the entrance enliven the scene and indicate of a daily-life there.
My best regards,

Hello dear Stephen and have a nice time
simple but interesting symmetrical
capture of this entrance
I like the idea and the timing
with people adding life
