Salut Joël,
Une photo bien de circonstance en ce dimanche et de quelle manière avec cette fameuse et belle " Eglise de St-Jouin-de-Marnes "..!
Très bon cadrage et bonne perspective, bonne lumière et jolie couleur.
Très bon cliché..!
Bien à toi et bonne fêtes de Pâques.

Hello Joel,
This is a very impressive church and you have captured it from a great viewpoint that shows us the different elements of which it is composed. Good clarity.

Salut Joel
Une magnifique architecture romane bien capturée avec ce POV en contre-plongée. Du bon travail

Bonsoir, Joël,
Très belle prise de vue (je suppose que le choix et le lieu du cadrage ont dû être difficiles, eu égard à l'importance de l'édifice) pour rendre compte de la beauté de l'église.
La note d'accompagnement est très bien rédigée.
L'ensemble est de grande qualité.
Bravo !
Amitiés.
Philippe

Joel, this is a really nice shot. The detail and the color are both very good and the not makes it even better. Nice capture.

Joel,
Beautiful architecture and neatly framed. The bird appearing in the sky like a dust spot could maybe be cloned out. Regards. Latiff.

Hello Joel,
What a great capture of this magnificent ancient Abbey. You did a wonderful job of composing this scene. Perhaps you could increase the contrast just a little bit. Well done!

Stan
