Salut Denis

A well spotted contrast between the brightly lit fg in full sunlight and the dark shadowed hills in deep shade. Good colour, framing & saturation. Merci pour ce partage.

Hi Denis
Beautifully done. Very dramatic use of sun and darks.

Hello Denis,

You have captured some very strong lighting contrasts, suggesting a threatening storm.
I really like the strong, textural details in the f/g, linking to the illuminated house and then, much of the rest is plunged into shadow!

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Hello Denis,
It's a spectacular view, but even more it is a refined composition of light and darkness and shadows.

Hello Denis, Impressive lights and shadows. Beautiful simple stone house with the shingle roof. Charming view.

Kind regrads MAlgo

Bonjour Denis,

C'est le bonheur de voir la lumière en diagonale qui frappe juste au bon moment la petite maison aux murs blancs ( ou presque ) unique élément pâle de la région. Les nuages sont spectaculaires.

Bonjour Denis

Bel exemple de photographie = écrire avec la lumière, la vieille grange typique de ce pays est illuminée par le soleil qui filtre à travers les nuages.
Bon WE

Hi Denis,
Light on this one is just fantastic. No matter how simple it is, that light toned wall makes a good main focal point. Dramatic clouds and red flowers are good extra details.

Salut Denis,
un éclairage qui met en lumière cette petite maison, bien vu ce contraste et bonne gestion pour l'exposition de cette vue. Le mur à gauche avec ces pierres aux tons chauds fait un très bel effet.

Bonjour Denis,

A lovely contrast picture with the sun on the frontage of the house.
You chose an excellent angle and lovely exposure.
Create an excellent depth and perspective.
Also a wonderful panorama about the area.
Nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Great light, clean-ness and contrasts here, Denis. I like the inclusion of the wall on the left. Many other fine details too, e.g. the red flowers and the shadow of the gate on the street. Nice one!


Bonjour Denis,
magnificent light, as if a spotlight illuminating the foreground and the little houses while the rest of the scene is covered in a dark shade. You have selected a very attractive foreground -even the fragment of the wall in the left provides interesting and rich texture thanks to the great light.
The clouds hanging over the mountain in the distance add another wonderful aspect.
Very challenging light conditions but a fantastic result!
Excellent work,

Hello Denis.
Spectacular and beautiful composition, with this marked play of lights, ideal houses illuminated by the sun and the bottom of the mountains in total darkness, ideal the touch of the pot and the poppy in bloom.
A magnificent color that gives a lot of chromatic richness to the image.
Well done. I like it.
Have a good start to the week.
Very best regards.

Hi Denis
wow, is that someone's home? Seriously? That has to be one of the most charming home's I have ever seen. the light striking it is A+, the steep roofline is A+, the textured walls all around the photo are A+, this is beautiful!. such a wonderful scene and photo, i'm impressed. cheers

Bonjour Denis
Bien capturer au bon moment , la lumière fait tout son effet , le ciel est fantastique

Bonjour Denis
La grande vedette est cette façade blanche qui insiste pour détourner l'attention de ce décor plus sombre, pourtant si méritoire pour cetta allure un peu inquiétante en hautes montagnes. Amicalement

Salut Denis
c est le bonheur de voir la luiere
