The Castle of Dissay of the 15th 18th 19th 20th centuries.

On a mound initially protected by a building out of wooden, fortifications were set up thanks to an authorization of the king Charles VII of January 11th, 1434.
Pierre d'Amboise, évèque of Poitiers, rebuilt the castle of 1484 to 1493, making there copy the entry of the castle of Chaumont-sur-Loire, his birthplace.
Frescos of the 16th century are visible at the time of the visit.

Dissay is a French commune, located in the department of Vienne of the Poitou-Charentes area, populated of 2634 Dissayens in 1999, distributed out of 24 km², that is to say 111 hab./km².

A tomb going back to 4300 years before Jesus-Christ was discovered in 1998 on the territory of the commune.

Hi Joel,
Beautiful clouds and sky.Great capture of the castle with beautiful colours and contrasts.

Hello Joël,
Looks like a real fairytale castle. I like the point of view; the benches and the flower beds contribute much to the atmosphere as does the interesting sky. Very good light and colours. Impeccable stitching.

Bonjour Joël

Tu présentes un château méconnu alors que visiblement il n'a rien à envier aux châteaux-stars !
Un point de vue parfait et un assemblage vraiment parfait pour donner un bel aperçu de l'architecture.
Une composition élégante, et de grande qualité.


Bonjour Joël,

Les bancs, les fleurs, le mur de pierre et les arbres cadrent bien le château. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de l'architecture du château de Dissay. L'assemblage des six photos a donné une belle image. La lumière sous ce ciel nuageux rehausse les couleurs. Bon weekend.

Bonjour joel,

Excellente composition, le ciel est merveilleux.
Un jolis assemblage avec un bon résultat.
Les détails du chateau et sa présentation(fleurs)donne un bon aperçut du chateau.
Une bon week end a toi.

This is a nice panoramic image of this great castle. The trees provide nice framing for the shot and the flowers and benches add a nice sense of depth to the scene. The lighting and colors are great with excellent sharpness and detail. Your first WS shot is well worth being a main post as well.

Salut Joël!
Le château est magnifique et la photo est merveilleuse!
Le point de vue a été bien choisi! La netteté, la luminosité et les couleurs sont excellentes! La composition est la meilleure! Le ciel et les plantes (fleurs) ont ajouté de la beauté à l'image!
Merci du partage!

Hi Joel.
A wonderful sky to top this wonderful wide angle view of the castle. The stitching work is superb, and I love the flowers on the left. It really is a magnificent architectural photo, with great sweeping lines and curves. Superb.

Hi Joel,
After a brief look at the thumbprint and yourtitle, I thought this was from Disneyland... But is is really easy to see that castles like this have inspired Disney! A magnificient building and a very well composed picture. Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty would definitely like this too!
Kind regards

Very well stitched image of the chateau: the quality is excellent. The composition is good with the inclusion of the flowers in the bottom corner. You also had a very attractive sky. All 3 images are good but this one gets my vote.

Bonjour Joel
Belle présentation du château, je trouve très joli l'avant plan avec les fleurs et les deux bancs qui invite a s'asseoir et a comtempler la beauté de l'architecture, superbe scéne du ciel, le ws de 3 images aurait mérité un post principal aussi
Beau dimanche

Bonjour Joël,

Une très belle présentation de cet imposant château. le POV est particulièrement bien choisi pour mette en évidence l'aspect imposant des tours. Très bon cadrage également qui inclut notamment les fleurs. Tout cela ressort très bien sous ce beau ciel. Intéressant et très beau.
Bon dimanche,

Bonsoir Joel.
Très bon rendu de la perspective grandangulaire, avec un beau ciel et des couleurs vives au plan rapproché.
Bien vu.
Amicalement, Bobo.

Bonjour Joel,
beautiful architecture of castle. Unusual towers with the chimneys. Nice composition with the flowers on FG. An interesting complementary WS also. Solid photojob.
Gr., Aleksander

Hi Joel

Fantastic composition, I love the colourful flowers in teh corner, they contrast well with teh castle tones. Great architecture and sky. Greay POV.


Salut Joel.
Une grande capture de ce château magnifique, d'angle précieux, le ciel merveilleusement spectaculaire avec ce jeu de nuages, me plaît beaucoup l'inclusion des fleurs dans l'angle gauche, la qualité et la luminosité aussi coléreux. Une bonne semaine.
Des saluts.

Bonjour Joël,
I always like your interesting Notes and admire perspective photos which you create, especially when they are stitched of several images! I know how difficult it is to stitch more than 2 photos :))
This view is beautiful and it conveys a special "freshness" (because of the rich - and yet quiet - colorus?) and is very dynamic thanks to the POV and the clouds in the sky which seem to be moving.
The castle itself, in a way, reminds me of a sophisticatedly carved beautiful chess piece (figure)! :) I don't know why...
Very interesting WS photos, I especially liked the vertical Image #2!
Best regards,

  • Great

Bonjour Joel
Ce ciel donne toute sa dimension esthétique à cette superbe image.
Bonne journée

Hello Joel,
Every things here is beautiful, I like the cloudy sky, the flora and the castle, good pov to show the magnificent castle from outside with including the protection wall, thanks for sharing WS too.

Beautiful castle, like a fairy tale, nice colors and light, very good sharpness

Bonsoir Joël,
Très beau château qui me rappelle celui que j'ai souvent photographié, celui de Sully, surtout les tours. Le cadrage est bien fait, je trouve cependant l'image un peu claire sur mon écran.
