Hello Joël,
A good perspective on this former cathedral with the gravel path drawing the viewer straight into the image helped by the framing shrubbery. The composition has a pleasing balance to it and benefits from a good ambient light and attractive natural tones. Sharpness is excellent as always.

Bonjour Joël,


Le POV est ici particulièrement bien choisi avec ce chemin qui donne profondeur et perspecteive à l'image mais qui surtout guide le regard vers cette église aux proportions assez étonnantes. Proportions dont on comprend mieux l'origine à la lecture de ta note.
Bonne journée,
Roger

Bonjour Joël,

Les maisons et le cimetière cadrent bien la cathédrale. Le chemin entraîne mon regard vers la cathédrale ce qui donne de la profondeur à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de l,architecture de la cathédrale gothique. La qualité de la lumière rehausse la beauté des couleurs. bonne journée.

Pierre

Bonjour Joel
