Saint-Etienne church of XIIe century, Romanesque style.
As in much of romanesque churches, the vault during centuries pushed back the walls and caused a slope of the walls towards outside.


Inside, one finds an altar of the XVIIe century in drowning carved, flanked of four twisted columns of the same wood.
Outside, the war memorial of 1923, under the “tilleul of Sully”, "lime of Sully", is partly made up of an old dolmen.

Esse is a french commune, located in the department of Charente of the area of the Poitou-Charentes, populated of 497 Essois, distributed on 30 km², that is to say 16 hab./km².

Bonjour Joel
Relief de l'église en valeur par cette lumière latérale avec un contraste qui la fait bien se détacher de ce ciel chargé.
Bonne journée à toi

Hello Joel! Very interesting church. Nice lightness and very nice brightness. Good sharpness. Very good POV and capture. Good luck!

hello Joël,

mangigique vue sur cette église, avec son arrondi, le clocher qui pointe à l'arrière avec un éclairage sur les tuiles, superbe captage, beua boulot.

Bravo et amitié


Salut Joël,
both with actual captures of a church, but a different impression. Nice little brickwork church, good view in light and shadow and a pleasant contrast with that grey in the sky. It seems that this one is really small. Good details of the inner church in the one workshop.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Hello Joël,
The rather charged sky suits the subject here and makes for an interesting atmosphere. Good composition and point of view doing full justice to the lovely architecture.

This is a nice architectural shot. The clouded sky provides a nice backdrop for the shot creating contrast to the brightly lit foreground. The lighting and colors are great with excellent sharpness and detail. The WS shots are fine as well.

Hello Joel,
Strong architecture on the small church with the dark sky emphasizes more religious sense to your photo.I like it very much!


Wonderful shot. This photo is so nice with the old church under the cloudy sky. I think somebody should be on the pic to get an idea of the scaling.
Best wishes,

bonjour Joël
j'aime beaucoup le contraste entre l'église ensoleillée et leciel bien gris et nuageux,elle est ainsi bienmise en valeur,et le vert des arbres ajoute une jolie touche de couleurs!

Salut Joël,
Très belle présentation de cette belle église avec sa tour. J'adore ce ciel couvert lumière qui n'empêche pas la prise.

Como lhe é habitual, ma beleza de fotografia com lindos e eficientes ajustes de exposição. The Saint-Etienne church is very beautiful from your Canon. well done!



Hi Joel,
Interesting composition to show an old church, this church it interior is simply and different with some others church, the interior brick wall without any painting, good pov to show the roman style structure, thanks for sharing.

Hello Joel, A very interesting old church, captured in very fine detail, good light & colouring with a different but pleasing perspective, I also like the contrast with the grey sky. The other exterior & interior shots are also very good,
Excellent capture.
Thank you

ciao Joel,
un'altra bella chiesa, purtroppo il cielo grigio no ti ha aiutato con il Colore, ottimi dettagli e bella luce.
ben fatto
