Hello Joel,
This is a lovely picture of this charming square. A very good composition making excellent use of the bridge coming in from the bottom right and a superb point of view. Everything is well laced in the frame. The dark red parasols make a very pleasing contrast with the lighter tones of the architecture. Very good colours and clarity. Have a good Sunday.

Bonjour Joël
Beau cliché pris en contre-plongée pour nous faire découvrir cette place où il doit faire bon flaner. L'ensemble est d'une grande netteté et nous propose beaucoup de choses à regarder.
Merci pour le partage et bon dimanche.
Nicole

Bonjour,

belle vue urbaine en contre-plongée de cette place à Nantes, jolie ville; j'aperçois un magasin d'antiquités où j'irai bien nicher et je suis certaine que je trouverai...sourires..
Bonne luminosité et netteté
a bientôt

Salut Joël
Intéressant point de vue sur la place depuis le château je suppose.
Légère déformation provoquée par la courte focale sur la droite, ce sont les aléas de la prise de vue en contre-plongée.
Je me permets une parenthèse, au sujet de la localisation sur la carte de Trekearth, c'est 47.216618 de latitude et -1.550319 de longitude d'après Google Earth.
Je m'étais trompé en recopiant la latitude o)
Cordialement.

Ciao Joel,
a very nice image, with a lot of details and a perfect POV. I like the WS too. Well done.
Happy next week.
Paolo.

Salut Joël,
good view down to that place in fine sharpness. Clear and with good light management a lot to explore. What was your POV?
Anne had a lot of husbands in her life.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Joel,
Excellent composition and POV. The bridge leads the eye into the shot nicely giving the shot nice direction and motion. The roads and pathways give us nice diagonals and complimentary lines throughout the photo. The lighting and colors are great with excellent sharpness and DOF.
TFS,
Asa

Joel
Excellent composition and pov here, it works well with good light and shadows play A bit of 3-D effect, you stand as high as roof top, because this view shows so many roofs. Nice Note too. TFS
cheers
bill

Hi Joel,
Good pov to show the old stone bridge leading the way to a peaceful old town, lively and relaxing people having tea at the open air restaurant, thanks for sharing.
Ally

Hello Joel, nice city shot with good POV. Is looking cool place.

TFS and regards,
Philip

Nice photo, Joel. The POV is very good and natural, like if one were watching out of his home window and just see the life of the town down below. Compliments. Ciao, Marco.

Bonjour Joël,
J'aime la composition et le point de vue. La lumière et les couleurs sont bien réussies, la netteté est excellente!
Merci pour la note très informative.

Una buena toma de este curioso puente por el que no pasa el agua.
La luz y los colores son estupendos y la presencia de la gente le añade vida.
Buena perspectiva.
