Hello,

Bézier, ville de rugby, je crois, magifique et très imposante cathédrale, un cadrage parfait, une très belle mise en valeur, c'est quand que tu sors un livre sur les églises de France ?

Bravo et amitiés

Salut Joël

Très bien ce cadrage serré pour être au plus près de l'architecture de la cathédrale. Les autres vues sont intéressantes pour comprendre l'emplacement de l'édifice, surplombant les toits de la ville.
Belles couleurs naturelles, et encore un ciel magnifique !

Bonne journée. Amicalement,
Karine

Hi Joel,

very good composition. You done a great job to squeeze the huge structure without loosing any detail. Well captured image with good colors and light. Goo POV too. Well done

Joshy

Hello Joël,
A good composition of this massive and imposing cathedral. I li9ke the upwards point of view and the arrangement of the towers. The image has good colours and clarity.

Hi Joel,
Nice tight composition with all the main features of the cathedral well shown & well framed by the trees & shrubs at the bottom. Nice blue of the sky & general lighting. Great POV with hardly any distortion. Come to think of it I can't recall any distortions in any of your postings of buildings & architectures. Have you used a software to adjust perspective distortion or it is just the camera?

Best wishes,
Latiff.

PS: WS are good too. They are more imposing especially the first one.

Hello Joel.
A very impressive shot of this majestic structure. Superb exposure and great detail in this sharp shot. The viewpoint emphasises the size of the cathedral, and it catches the light very nicely. Well done.
Regards,
Andrew

Hi joel.

What a pity the sky so blue...so boring.

With some clouds this picture would be...impressive!

anyway, well done!

Salut Joel.
Tu es l'artiste de la simplicité.
On a beaucoup à apprendre de tes images.
Bravo!

Hi Joël,

incredible architecture. Once more the contrast between the 'warm' that comes from the cathedral and the blue of the sky. Framing and natural colors are good as usual from you. Well done!

Salut, Joel!
Yes, that's a sight to be remembered! Excellent composition of structural diversity against a nice blue sky.

the architecture full of different details is very well expressed here and excellent visible with the good light and deep blue sky. The cathedral must be also a good POV to have a look over the city.

Bonjour Joël,
Una estupenda toma en la que te alejaste de la catedral para poder fotografiarla en todo su conjunto y por lo que parece, desde el otro lado del río. Buenos contrastes y resolución.
Amicalement
Charo
Que tengas buen día.

Hi Joel, What a splendid cathedral &, its position looking down on the surrounding makes its importance stand-out, the blue sky creates a wonderful backdrop, clear sharp focus & superb detail, kind regards Wilson.

Bonjour Joël.
Tu as su saisi la lumière idéale pour présenter cette cathédrale pleine de caractère qui domine la ville. Et quel ciel! Le bleu "Camping Gaz" comme j'ai l'habitude de le qualifier ;-D.
Meilleures salutations.

Bonjour Joël,
Esta fotografía la tengo pendiente ya que las dos veces que he estado en Beziers el clima estaba en mi contra.
Un fabuloso cielo azul que permite ver en toda su plenitud la belleza de esta catedral.

Saludos
