Bonjour Joël
J'ouvre TE et je découvre ce cliché au format carré bien approprié et qui attire l'oeil. Cette tour imposante, diffférente de ma tour solidor, est bien mise en valeur sous un beau ciel bleu et un angle bien choisi qui nous permet de découvrir son environnement.
Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.
Nicole

Hello Joël,
A good capture of this massive tower well placed in context with the surrounding countryside. The blue sky makes for a pleasing atmosphere and acts as a good foil for the stonework. Very good colours and clarity.

Bonjour Joël,

c'est une photographie efficace. Vous avez trouvé un point de vue parfait. La tour est bien placée dans l'armature et le format carré était un bon choix. Travail très bon!
Amicalement,
Carlos

Hi Joel,
Superb shot I like the beautiful colours and the fine environment. The tower is massive and spectacular, clarity is excellent. The note is splendid as usual. Have a nice day
George

Salut Joel
C'est net, c'est carré (comme le format ;o)), il y a un très piqué sur cette photo et de bonnes couleurs, que demander de plus, une note accompagnant le tout, elle est là!!
Très bon boulot, en plus sur un morceau d'histoire que j'apprécie
Amicalement
Hervé

Joel, another great presentation you have here. I think I like the second ws best but it is just a matter of taste I suppose. In all the detail and color are wonderful and they show well what your note describes.

Greg

A clear composition with good light and detail. Excellent exposure. I like it a lot.
Best wishes,
Achim

Joel,
Very nice composition placing the tower to one side with the roadway leading the eye into the shot. The lighting and colors are great with excellent sharpness and detail.
TFS,
Asa

Bonsoir, cher Joël,
Inutile de préciser que j'apprécie particulièrement les différentes photographies ayant trait à l'architecture (si, je crois qu'il faut encore le préciser !) ! ;o)
La note parfaitement rédigée nous aide à mieux comprendre l'historique.
Nom d'un petit bonhomme, comme il me serait agréable de pouvoir visiter la France d'une aussi belle façon !
Merci, Joël, pour ces très bonnes photographies.
Addenda :
Je me suis essayé au golf, il y a un temps, pas assez souple le papy !
Les bons repas je les trouve à la maison (car les prix pratiqués dans ces centres sont inabordables). ;o)
Amitiés.
Philippe

Encore une tres belle photo du Sud, Joel. J'aime sutrout le coin a droite, ou les plantes sortent de la pierre. C'est ma facon aussi de faire les clotures (au bord du Danube): je fais deux ranges de pierre, la terre dedans et puis les plantes grimpantes. Un effet naturel et seduisant. Ta photo m'a inspire de te dire ca. Grand merci pour ce plaisir. Amicalement,

Branko

Ciao Joel,
stupendo contrasto di luci e ombre. La perfetta nitidezza ci permette di vedere ogni singola pietra di questa antica torre. Molto interessanti anche le note, che sono sempre una bella lezione di storia. Complimenti.
Ciao
Paolo.

Ciao Joel,
another beautiful building with a beautiful architecture, very well taken again with some beautiful colours and a beautiful created game of light shades by the sky.
nice work
Giorgio

Hello Joel I like the subject placement in this composition. The best thing I can see here is how the light catches on the green background and the wall of the castle. Thanks for sharing and have a nice day. Jusni

Bonjour Joel!
You've achieved a strong 3d effect with this deep dof composition. Colors and clarity are very attractive. Excellent additional povs too. Templier stories are always winning issues;-)

Hola Joël,
me gusta este encuadre descentrado con la torre y la muralla en un lado, para dejar espacio al bello paisaje natural y el cielo azul con las nubes, que funciona muy bien como telón de fondo.
La perspectiva y la profundidad de la imagen son muy buenas, todos los elementos nos ofrecen un bonito grafismo y están muy bien equilibrados.
Buena foto, limpia, luminosa y con un gran colorido.
Un abrazo,
Josep

Bonjour Joel!
Beautiful shot of this castle tower together with Pyrenees landscape!
Contrast between the tower and small houses at the background is nice.
Kind regards from Russia,
