Hi Joel,
You have found a very interesting facade to take this picture. Really good play of light and shadows here. Well done. Thanks for sharing.
Best, Malgorzata

Joel,
This is a great shot of this fine architecture! Your composition is nice giving us a symmetrical view of the front facade. The photographer in the foreground adds depth and interest for the scene. The play of sun and shadow is great creating nice contrasts.

Hello Joël,

You shows us a very lovely picture of this "Château de Bois"
Also a nice game of shadows and light.
You create depth and perspective through the excellent choice of your angle.
Very well composition, excellent captured too.
Wonderful presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice weekend,
John.

Bonjour Joël,

La distance entre la personne et l'entrée du château donne de la profondeur à la composition. La prise de vue permet de distinguer les détails et les couleurs de l'architecture de l'aile classique du château de Blois. La façade reçoit un bon éclairage ce qui fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journée.

Bonjour Joel,

Le soleil offrait une lumière intense, ainsi que des ombres prononcées, ce qui donne un contraste intéressant. Les détails architecturaux sont très nets et la photographes offre une belle relation dimensionnelle.

Amicalement

Salut Joël,
Belle façade avec un style très français, classique et élégant.
Très bon point de vue légèrement décalé et la personne qui prend une photo, donne une grande échelle.
"Altered Image # 2 " est une bonne perspective ainsi.
Amicalement,
Charo

Hi Joel,

Joël
Belle lumière sur la magnifique façade de ce très beau château. L'ombre un peu envahissante du premier plan me dérange un peu et j'ai tendance à préférer "l'autre vue", même si le célèbre escalier est un peu coupé.

Ciao Joel
è un gioiello ad intarsio questa facciata, colpisce il bianco totale dei muri bordati dalla copertura nera contro il cielo, e la ripetizione degli elementi architettonici. la figura della ragazza è un minuscolo ma efficace elemento di rottura in tanto rigore, per la grazia e il tempo presente che essa rappresenta davanti ad un simile monumento del passato. bravo Joel, e grazie per averci mostrato Blois.
un caro saluto
amicalement
Simonetta

Bonjour Joël,

La photographe sur la droite apporte une très agréable présence humaine ! Ceci étant, outre la photographe, l'image est elle aussi très agréable ave un cadrage idéal et un magnifique leu d'ombre.
Bon WE,
Roger
