Hello Joël,
The square format suits this fine composition perfectly. Very good point of view on this interesting church. Pleasing natural tones and superb clarity. Rather unusual architecture for France; well worthy of TE. Very good work, thanks for sharing.

Bonjour Joël
un très bon cliché de ce monastère bien présenté avec ses douces couleurs, son architecture intéressante, le tout sous le soleil avec un bel écrin de verdure.
Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.

Bonjour Joel
Une architecture qui pourrait détonante pour la région, mais que je trouve plutôt bien intégré. Un savant mélange de droite et de courbe pour un résultat que j'aime beaucoup.
Du très bon boulot!!
Amicalement

Salut Joël,
looking at this I would think I am in Greece. Well chosen view over the gate to the entrance in the diagonal, the light is excellent supporting this view and shows the structure of the monastery. Well framed with the branches.

Bonsoir Joël,
Bella toma de este monasterio, bien presentada y enmarcada por esos árboles que ya empiezan a brotar. Excelente composición con muy buenos detalles. Bien hecho.
Amicalement
Charo

Ciao Joel,
bella immagine primaverile dove si vedono anche le prime foglie sugli alberi. Ottima definizione dei dettagli di questa bella chiesa. Complimenti anche per il WS, che meriterebbe essere postato da solo.
Ciao
Paolo.

Bonjour Joël,
La qualité de l'image de tes photos est excellente et pure! Pas l'air d'avoir subi des PP, pantoute! 3D comme si on était sur place! La composition et le choix de l'heure pour avoir cet angle de lumière du soleil ont mis en valeur cette architecture si bien décrite sur ta note.
Merci pour le partage,
MCV
P.S.: je trouve pantoute plus fort que pas du tout :-)

Bon Matin, Joel!
AS good example of contemporary church building in France. I see that architecture somewhat drifts toward Byzantine style.

Light and colors are very good, conveying the feeling of coming spring.
Amities!
Anton
