Helo Joel
Where are you?

One from beterer your work
Cheers,Braca

Bonsoir, Joël,
Ici, l'aspect défensif de ce château a gardé sa prédominance. La puissance architecturale est manifeste.
J'aime l'environnement sans afféterie donnant à l'ensemble son aspect d'origine.
Une excellente photographie dont l'intérêt est évident.
Bonne soirée.
Amitiés.
Philippe

Interesting shot, kind of down plays the importance of this site, makes it look like it is just another building, one would see anywhere, very nice effect I think. Nice note, do you know what the yello coloration on the bricks of the tower is?

Hi Joel, A wonderful castle & a great POV to capture the reflection in the beck, nice soft colours & well composed with the beck going at an angle from the right corner, TFS this superb piece of architecture, kind regards Wilson.

Salut Joel
C'est bien composé sous une lumière très agréable. un bon rendu pour nous présenter cet edifice impressionnant.
Amicalement
Hervé

Bonsoir Joël,
Très belle lumière éclairant ce beau château, bravo pour avoir capté son reflet dans le petit plan d'eau au premier plan, j'apprécie beaucoup cette image.

Hi Joel,
Impressive and spectacular photo. I like the historical atmosphere and the fascinating reflection. Effective POV and superb composition. Attractive colours and romantic mood. Very good work. Have a nice week. Thank you,
George

salut Joel
un chateau bien mis en valeur par un cadrage bien choisi, une lumiére douce et des reflets dans la petite riviére au milieu de la verdure, bon boulot
amitiés
gilbert

Bonjour Joel,
Un chateau beau et massif tel qu'il apparait sous cet angle, le cadrage est serre mais suffisant pour presenter la reflection en plus du chateau, etr donner a voir un bon environnement bucolique
Bonne journee JY

Hola Joël,
Me gusta este castillo destacando sobre la hierba y reflejándose en el agua.
Excelente captura.
Saludos cordiales
Zelanda
