Bonjour Joël,
Curieuse dans l'image intéressante de cette "lampe de poche" qui ressort dans le cimetière au-dessus des tombes. De bonnes couleurs et définition.
Un bon jour.

Bonne soirée

hi Joel

Well captured memorial view and good composition to show sharp texture of wall and color tone. The rise of status is placed slightly off and you used the vegetation as frame at right nicely.

tfs, bill

Bonsoir Joel,

tu montres la lumiere merveilleuse et moi (ce soir) je montre le noir en parlant de la meme chose. Si les photos sont le reflet de l'ame, je suis catastrophiquement pesimiste. Mais je suis heureux, que chaque de tes photos est un optimisme sans limites et je me refugie dans ta galerie pour rencontrer le soleil souriant. Meme dans une cimetiere, ici tres bien vue et presentee.
Amicalement a toi,

Branko
