Hello Joël,

Again one of the lovely castles in Frence, one of the a lot splendid castles.
I find this a wonderful area.
You show here a very nice detail picture with the castle in as subject.
Very well of colour and pleasant for look it.

Have a nic eweekend,
John.

Joel,
This is a well composed shot of this fine castle. The road leads the eye into the shot nicely. The shot has nice symmetry and is well centered. The bush is the foreground adds a nice point of interest in the foreground. The lighting and colors are great with excellent sharpness and detail.
TFS,
Asa

Bonsoir Joël.
La facade est centrale dans l'écran, mais le chemin qu'y conduit est bien decentré, et le buisson au plan rapproché introduit un ultérieur, propice, élément d'asymetrie.
Bien vu.
Amicalement. Bobo.

Hello Joël,
A great capture of this splendid chateau. I like the point of view looking down the path and the inclusion of the foreground shrub, which helps add depth. The light across the facade bring out the detail in the architecture to very good effect. I like also the shadow lay across the path. Very good sharpness throughout.

Hello Joel! excellent POV to show us the castle and its surrounding very good and nice. The structure of this very old castle is really made as a fortification and house?. Great architecture in wonderful light. And a very informative note on that.Very interesting chateau. You have captured the old stones very well. The light is good, emphatically by the prospect you chose so the side light provided some useful shadows for contrast

bonsoir Joel

Very impressive and grand looking architecture from this POV by giving the FG space and showing depth from f/8.

The light and shadow of this capture adds a nice touch to the lanscape, with blue sky to contrast with the greenery.

Very nice earthly color tone.

Bonjour Joel,
The symmetrical framing of this beautifully classic castle is very effective here, especially with the drama of the long shadows. Wonderful color and detail and informative note as well.
SAJ, Pat

Salut Joel

Merci du partage en image et en texte.
Bonne soirée

Bonsoir Joel
Et hop un château :-) joliment présenté avec le chemin et le "buisson" en gros plan, un fond bleu et une lumiére extra pour mettre le tout en valeur, intéressante aussi celle en WS1
Passe une belle soirée
cricri

comme Gildas, je pense à un autre château du même style (la motte tilly)
comme Nicolas je pense que ça ferait une maison secondaire potable ^^
bel éclairage & bon POV avec le chemin qui crée une asymétrie
amicalement

Bonsoir Joël,
El castillo es impresionante y con una arquitectura muy bella. El encuadre centrado es muy apropiado para mostrar su imponente fachada. Como siempre, magnífica luz y detalles.
Buon fin de semaine.
Amitiés,

Bonjour Joël,

Encore un scoop sur TE, première publication de ce superbe château. De la recherche dans le cadrage je vois, j'aime beaucoup le buisson du premier plan qui équilibre bien l'ensemble. La lumière est très belle mettant bien en valeur les multiples détail de la façade. De la belle photo, bravo Joël et merci pour la note intéressante ainsi que les photos bonus.

Avec toutes mes amitiés et un très bon dimanche,

Jean-Charles
