Salut Joel,
Jolie petite église, l'angle est bon et la lumière ajoutée à ce fond de ciel gris donnent un bon contraste pour ta présentation.

Hello Joel.
A very nicely composed picture of this simple but handsome church, so well preserved. The detail and colours are very good, and the tones of the door and roof contrast well with the sky. I like the way the winter branches break up the roof line. Very appealing photo.
Regards,
Andrew

I love old churches, and this one is very unique. Fantastic detail and sharpness! Perfect sharpness! A very beautiful picture. TFS

Joel,
Your composition and POV are great here showing the church from a great angle showing us nice depth and detail. The architecture is fine here and you show the details of the stonework very nicely. The lighting and colors are great with excellent sharpness and DOF.

Hello Joel,
A lovely composition of this delightful country church. I like the light and shadow contrasts across the façade. The tones and textures in the stonework and the tiled roof are superb.

Bonjour Joel
Souvent,nous cherchons un beau ciel bleu pour mettre nos images en valeur,ici l'architecture s'accomode parfaitement du gris du ciel,la tuile,la pierre et le vernis doré de la porte d'entrée de l'église sont de belle façon mis en valeur.Le cliché est bien exposé et la netteté est présente.Du bon boulot.
Bonne journée à toi.
Amicalement
Gildas

bonjour Joël,
The cloudy sky certainly enhanced the texture and details of the church facade and tower. Lovely composition. It certainly is attractive and your well written Note is a good companion to the historical significance of the church. Best greetings! Danilo

Salut Joël,
that a real nice little one. It is an elementary style of architecture, very rural but also very pleasant. The wooden door is a hidden gem in it. Good POV, great shadow and light and also the sharpness.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Hello Joel,

L'architecture de cette église n'est pas commune et suffirait à en justifier la présentation ici.Mais en plus la photo est plaisante et réussie, cadrage, lumière, contraste et netteté.
A l'origine la toiture était-elle d'ardoise comme celle du clocheton le laisserait penser ou bien de tuile. Quel sous Violet le Duc est venu ici rompre l'harmonie ?
Bravo .
cordialement.

Ciao Joel ,
bella chiesa , mi piacciono i differenti tetti tra quello della chiesa rosso e quello del campanile nero chissa' perche'.
ottima nei colori e nella gestione della luce nonostante il cielo nuvoloso.
Giorgio

Salut Joel,
Tu as bien maitrisé ces contrastes, que l'on imagine puissants.
Comme à l'habitude la netteté et les couleurs sont superbes.
Bonne journée,
JB.

Salut Joel,
Un ciel gris qui filtre une belle lumiére sur l'église au toit rouge et fait resortir les moindres détails des vielles pierres, simple intérieur qui a du charme, compliment
Passe une belle journée

Bonjour Joël
J'ai hélas frôlé ce village sans me douter qu'il y avait de belles choses à voir par ici.
J'apprécie la lumière qui rase la façade de l'église et la luminosité réfléchie sur le côté met en valeur le volume.
Très bon équilibre avec le ciel.
Cordialement.

Good morning Joel,
You made a good composition, here. The point of capturing is well chosen and the details are fine. I like the cloudy sky and the shadow on the wall of the church. It adds to the contrast. Thank you very much.
Have a nice day,
Athanasios.
