Gate of the Peyrou XVIIe century

A view
Other view

Triumphal arch built of 1691 to 1695, decorated low-reliefs pointing out the great facts of the reign of Louis XIV. The project was entrusted to the Parisian architect Augustin Charles Daviler, according to a drawing of the architect François Dorbay. The sculpture is carried out by the montpelliérain Philippe Bertrand. The engraved Latin dedicace can be translated by: "peace was returned on ground and on sea by Louis the Large one, whose reign was sixty twelve years, which separated, contained and stuck the people combined in a war of forty years."

Montpellier is the chief town of the Languedoc-Roussillon Area, populated of 244 300 (in 2005), Montpelliérains and Montpelliéraines, distributed on 57 km², is 3 963 hab/km². The urban surface is populated of 531 000 inhabitants.
The population has increased in an uninterrupted way for 50 years.
The climate of Montpellier is a Mediterranean climate. Contrary to a spread idea, it does not rain less in Montpellier that in Brest, but precipitations are much concentrated http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montpellier

Hello Joël,
A very good night time capture; I like the point of view and the inclusion of the curlicue lamps. Well managed exposure with the gate standing out well against the late evening sky. Very good clarity, allowing us to read the inscription though I'm afraid I have forgot most of the Latin I learnt at school; thanks for the translation!

Bonjour joel
Very nice night shot...
Great composition and light...
Nice POV here,well done.
TFS/Regards

Salut Joël,
wonderful night capture from the Blue Hour with a great subject. I like the clear and sharp view on the brighter parts as well as the soft hidden darker areas. This is centered but very pleasant. Great one.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Salut Joël,
Magnifique image, j'aime beaucoup l'enfilade de monument au travers de l'arche. Belle symétrie en plus.
Bonne soirée
Guy

Salut Joel,

Netteté et couleurs sont au top, tu as parfaitement exploité la blue hour.

Ciao Joel,

salut joel
excellente cette photo a l'heure bleue, moi j'y arrive pas difficile avec le boulot pour quitter avant, beau cadrage et couleur dorée du fronton de l'arc, le S3 se débrouille plutot bien dans ce genre de prise
amitiés
gilbert

Salut Joel
Tu nous avait fait un cadrage un peu similaire de jour que j'avais bien aimé, mais cette vue à l'heure bleue est vraiment superbe, c'est bien cadré, équilibré et très bien exposé.
Du très bon boulot
Amicalement

Bonsoir Joël,
Une belle image nocturne avec une ambiance typique heure bleue particulièrement réussie. Le symétrie quasi parfaite est impressionnante et le choix délibéré du centrage est, dans ce cs, tout à fait opportun.
Bonne soirée à toi.
Amicalement, Christian

Hi Joel, A wonderfully symmetrical photo, the detail in this famous structure is very good &, the blue hour is perfect, I like the way the car lights have helped the depth &, the two lamps ether side are beautifully positioned, kind regards Wilson.

salut Joel
tres sympa l'angle qui donne que l'arc est suspendu à ces deux mats de lampadaires. tu as même su trouver les deux phares en plein milieu respectant la symetrie ambiante.
bonne soirée à toi Joel

Salut, Joel.
Très belle compo sur un sujet apparemment banale. Une louage de la symétrie.
Au revoir.
Bobo.
