Hello Joël,
A very good capture of this imposing church, which seems to stand there like a massive rock. The architecture is captured to great effect and is beautifully detailed in your fine image.

hi joel, beautiful old church and excellent shot. Very useful notice .

Marjan

Bonjour Joel,
Amazing luminosity and clarity. Great POV with the church dominating most of the frame. The contrast to light blue sky is very nice. Regards. Latiff.

Bonjour Joel

Bonjour Joël
Un beau cliché de cette superbe abbaye à l'architecture massive intéressante. Tu as su choisir le bon angle pour nous en faire voir le maximum.
Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.

a peceful, charming and lovely place... and shot

Hi Joel,
Today both of them we show a similar architectural photo to the respected audience. :) However, you from behind the apse you took a photo. There was a very good decision because of the direction of the sunlight. Moreover, a hypotenuse like this could not have been made of the little square before the church if I am right about it sight photo. The details wonderful, the photo shows the church's mass and his size very nicely. A superb one is an architectural photo again. Congratulations. Have a nice day
George

Hello Joel! Amazing architecture, amazing church. Wonderful POV, excellent capture. Nice light and bright. Perfect composition. Great effect. Good luck!

Joel,
Nice shot of this great architecture. The lighting and colors are great with excellent sharpness and detail. The angle of the shot is fine giving the shot excellent depth and direction. The deep blue sky provides nice contrast for the stone cathedral.

Bonjour Joel
grandiose! je dois le dire, tu nous habitues mainteant à prendre le "derrière" de l'église et tu as raison, car l'architecture de cette abbatiale est surprenante et remarquable; imposante également
la façade présente également avec les statues son intérêt et l'intérieur merite ce détour avec les piliers qui paraissent très hauts
excellente réalisation

Re bonsoir Joël,

Tu nous as dégoté encore un bien beau fleuron de notre patrimoine religieux, décliné en 3 photos intéressantes. Son architecture est très riche, un vrai livre ouvert pour l'amoureux de la belle architecture. Le temps lumineux met bien en relief l'édifice et illumine agréablement l'intérieur proposée ne WS. Belles compositions, merci Joël.

Avec mes amitiés,

Jean-Charles

bonjour joel,
ton catalogue d'églises s'agrandit de jour en jour, celle-ci devrait y figurer en bonne place, l'exposition et le cadrage sont parfait.

-petit appareil mais grand talent-

Hi Joel, Nice to see such a beautiful building in such great light, the clear sky tells me this was a wonderful day to go out with the camera, you really show all it's qualities like it's slightly unusual shape, nicely sharp & the none over dramatic colours do not distract from the main subject, TFS, kind regards Wilson.

Deux images pour cette abbaye, la distance était suffisante pour inclure le volume de l'architecture; le point de vue est parfait sous cette bonne luminosité.
