Bonjour Joel

Une belle recherche d'esthétisme. La contre plongée donne beaucoup d'ampleur au portail et utilise ce très beau ciel comme arrière plan. Tu n'étais pas seul a avoir la même idée.

Amicalement

Serge

Bonjour Joël,

La longueur de l'escalier donne de la profondeur à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de l'architecture du portail de la cathédrale. La bonne luminosité rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Hello Joël,
A splendid upwards point of view on this magnificent door canopy and its tracery work, the detail of which we can fully appreciate with the lovely blue sky behind. Excellent detail also to be observed in the brickwork on the right.

This was a difficult POV, Joel.
The upwards look of the gate, with it's magnificent Gothic curves was worth taking the photo.
from where you stood, it was possible to see through the engravings with good light upon. Cheers for that.
Bonsoire'e,
Ike

Bonsoir Joël,

Les dimensions de cette cathédrale en imposent, de même que l'élégance et la décoration soignée de son portail ! Excellente netteté, très belles couleurs (rouge des briques et bleu du ciel) et bon cadrage, avec cette passante qui a cherché à copier le maître ;0)

Bonne soirée,

Sylvain

Tes trois photos donnent une très bonne idée de la beauté de ce portail et de la dentelle de pierre qui le décore. Cela donne vraiment envie de s'arrêter pour visiter cette cathédrale.

Salut Joel.
Ce portique couvert beauté renversante, est une dentelle de pierre authentique, avec le couvercle, est le seul élément décoratif à l'extérieur de la cathédrale-forteresse, j'ai été très surpris quand la visite et l'intérieur fantastique, a été une surprise totale .
Ce point de vue ci-dessous est magnifique et nous montre toute la beauté des sommets et des sculptures, de l'éclairage et des détails magnifiques.
Bien fait.
Passez une bonne journée.
Cordialement.
Luis.
