Salut Joël,
the good upview makes this very impressive. Wonderful mixture of towers in different architecture and the houses are very clever and also a nice extra as they differ but keep the style being itself also from natural stones. The good light helps on the textures.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Belle photo de ces tours sur lesquelles sont venues se dresser ces jolies maisons, cela leur donne protection et assistance, c' est du moin l' effet que cela me fait. Bonne note explicative qui nous donne de l' instruction supplémentaire, ce n' est pas comme les miennes, qui sont très courtes et sont plutot des souvenirs plutot que des recherches.Bonne netteté,jolies couleurs et très bon POV.
Amitiés Thomas
Je reviens

Hello Joel,
A very good point of view and perspective following the diagonal line made by the towers. The light has helped to bring out the detail and tones of the stonework; whilst the charged sky emphasises the austereness of the architecture. Good use of the square format.

Bonjour Joel,

Une belle image de la tour du rampart est de Sainte-Eulalie-de-Cernon, la photo a une bonne composition, profondeur de champs et de jolies couleurs. Bonne journée.

Amicalement.

Joel,
Your composition is great looking upward toward the top of the towers. The road leads the eye through the shot and gives the photo direction. The lighting and colors are great with nice sharpness and detail.

Ciao Joel,
a parte il bel soggetto, la cosa che più mi piace di questa foto è la magnifica luce in contrapposizione al cielo grigio. Con la nitidezza perfetta hai fatto veramente un bel lavoro. Complimenti.

Hi Joël,
fantastic architecture caught in heavenly light fromn a great POV. Perfect picture,
groeten Gerrit

Bonsoir joel,
une notre très fouillée, comme d'habitude. Au niveau photo je lui trouve un aire un peu étriqué, certainement du à la déformation géométrique. As-tu essayé une correction de perspectives?.
Cordialement

Hi Joel!
These towers are really connected with the other house. Very interesting pov and colours. Seems a very interesting old place.

Salut jOël
C'est assez étonnant ces tours encastrées dans les maisons. Ce mélange de couleurs de pierre est du plus bel effet. Une belle réalisation avec une belle netteté et une bonne composition.
Du bon travail et un joli coup d'œil!!
Amicalement
Hervé

Hi Joel,
Great architecture image the note is splendid and very interesting. The diagonal composition is very attractive, I like the different towers and the superb details. Clarity and sharpness is excellent. Beautiful and interesting architecture shot once more, Great! Have a nice weekend
George

Bonjour Joël,

j'aime beaucoup la façon dont ce bâtiment (sans doute plus récent) est venu se coller littéralement à cette tour, comme pour chercher sa protection... La lumière est bonne et met bien le tout en valeur.

Bonne journée et bon week-end,

Loïc

Good shot Joel, this shows the uphill slope away from the camera very well and the resulting odd looking angles make the picture very interesting. Inspection of course just shown this to all be perspective but you have done it very well.

Greg

Bonjour Joël.
Ces remparts ont encore fière allure. Dommage que des maisons se soient accolées à ces murs de défense. Tu as eu la bonne lumère pour mettre en valeur ces vestiges d'oeuvres de Templiers.
