One view.
Another view. Porte des Tours.

The "Porte de la Combe", the Combe gate, opens on the Porte de la Combe street and the Grand Rue street, and is one of the four doors which are always the entrances to the village of Domme, with the "Porte Delbos", the "Porte Basse", lower gate, and the "Porte des Tours" is the largest, the towers gate .

_ The DORDOGNE is formed in its origin, of brooks taking their spring up to 1694 meters in height, on the sides of the Puy de Sancy in the Massif Central. After a course of 483 kilometers, and the crossing of a catchment basin of 23870 km², it flows in the Garonne, at the bec d'Ambès in the estuary of Gironde, before joining the Atlantic Ocean.

Bonjour Joël,

L'utilisation de la porte pour cadrer la rue est une bonne idée. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs des ramparts. La rue envoie mon regard au loin ce qui donne de la profondeur à la compositionn. La bonne luminosité rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Hello Joel,
what a lovely old architecture with the view through the arch. Fantastic creative idea. Wonderfully executed image. Perfectly well done. I like it a lot. Very interesting.
All the best,
Barbara

Salut Joel.
Fantastique cette belle composition, avec la porte nous montrant à travers elle, la rue de la population, donnant une grande profondeur de champ dans cette image, le tissu grande muraille, parfaitement montrant leurs textures et les nuances de couleur.
Globalement, c'est un magnifique, une lumière parfaite et la couleur.
Passez une bonne journée.
Cordialement.
Luis.

Bonjour Joel,

Le mur forme une belle diagonale dans l'image et l'ouverture donne sur un bel endroit duquel on voudrait en voir un peu plus. La netteté est parfaite et on sent la texture de la pierre.

Amicalement

Serge

Bonjour Joël,

Superb graphism with good sharpness & subtle warm cold color contrasts between the pale yellow tinted wall & the deep blue sky. The arch frames a nice street view with excellent diminishing linear perspective. Merci!

bonjour Joël
cette porte donne envie de la franchir, j'espère que ce qui est derrière est aussi beau,avec autant de caractère.Le ciel bleu la fait vraiment bien ressortir.
Amitiés
Pascale

Filipe

Bonjour Joel
Belle lumière sur ce vieux mur de pierres dont on apprécie les moindres détails, bon cadrage avec le banc et l'envie de franchir la porte et découvrir le village sous un super bleu azur du ciel, magnifique
Belle soirée

Bonsoir Joël,

Mince, je croyais qu'on était toujours à la Couvertoirade ! Belle perspective à travers cette porte d'un autre âge, d'ailleurs le décalage est amusant avec la route goudronnée et les véhicules stationnés (malgré le panneau !), c'est comme si deux époques se téléscopaient... Beau ciel bleu et bon choix pour l'ouverture.

Bonne soirée !

Sylvain

Bonjour Joel,
quelle aubaine quand on peut avoir de telles conditions de lumières, plus faciles à exploiter, des couleurs qui se développent naturellement, vibrent, telles celles de ce ciel d'un bleu exquis.
Photo bien cadrée avec en point de mire, cette fameuse porte.
Le placement dans le prolongement de la rue est bien pensé.
Amitiés.
Daniel.

Hi Joël,
A very fine view through the gate in the old wall here. I always like these pleasant colours of light brown sandstone against the clear blue sky. This is a very well composed picture with very good workshops.
Kind regards
Gunnar

Hello Joel
Good idea of the portal that attracts the 'eye in the center to see a beautiful, crystal clear background with houses lined. Very beautiful play of light and shadows that give a special effect to the whole 'picture.
Greetings and best wishes for good evening ... Marino
