upfront and neat with a lovely crisp colour scheme. i like this image and its composition. its wonderful. Great pov and perspective

Hello Joël,
This is a church in Charente that I have not yet had the opportunity to visit. I like the composition of the church façade flanked by the tree; they make a very good contrast in terms of colour and texture. A very sympathetic light helps bring out the architectural detail to good effect. Very good tones and clarity. I guess it cannot be far from Cognac?

bonjour Joël
tu viens d'aller voir ma cathédrale sans lumière,et je ne peux pas en dire autant de ton église!Elle est magnifiquement éclairée,ce qui laisse bien apparaître la texture des 2 murs ,et donne de superbes couleurs vives et lumineuses!J'aime beaucoup le contraste vert-bleu-gris,c'est magnifique!

Salut Joël,
wonderful grey contrasts and also the grey to the blue. The green tree is a great balance, very good composition by including this in the frame. And as it is sharp, bright and clear, all well done.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

une tres belle lumière sur cette façade de cette église romane avec une belle architecture
j'aime beaucoup l'arbre sur la droite tres vert et un beau ciel bleu
vu tes ws, cette église est assez imposante et l'intérieur de celle-ci est vraiment caractéristique de ces églises romanes du poitou avec leurs triples niveaux

Ciao Joel,

This is a great shot of this church. The lighting and colors are great with excellent sharpness and detail. The tree adds nice balance to the shot as well as nice contrast.

Joël, j'aime l'équilibre et la sobriété du roman. Ta photo est bien composé avec l'arbre qui semble monter la garde devant cet édifice plus que respectable.

Bonsoir Joël,
Une architecture excellente romane. Un cadrage excellent dans laquel l'église reste encadrée par la nature ce qui lui donne un contraste et une vie.
Une résolution magnifique.
