Bonjour Joël,

Une église qui permet une belle leçon sur l'histoire de l'architecture et son évolution. Très belle composition en plusieurs plans succesiifs que l'on découvre l'un après l'autre et qui donne une belle profondeur à la vue.
Amitiés,
Roger

Bonjour Joël,

Les arbres cadrent bien l'église. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de l'architecture de l'église Saint-Barthélemy. La lumière a un bel effet sur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Bonjour, mon ami Joël,
Le vrai, le beau, le bon, d'où qu'ils viennent, sont le trésor de l'humanité.
Encore un joyau architectural parfaitement mis en image.
Un pur régal à contempler.
La source ne se tarit pas, et je m'en réjouis.
Amitiés.
Philippe

Bonjour Joel ,
Un très joli clocher à peigne , comme on peut en voir assez souvent dans le Masif Central . Ce village aux solides bâtisses , au coeur d'une belle campagne vallonnée , semble très interesssant .
Amicalement

Hello Joël,
The point of view is well chosen to show off the massive architecture of this fortified church. I like the blend of green, grey and blue and the excellent detail to be seen in the stonework.

Hi Joel,
Very beautiful place there. You've manage to capture the essence of it in a very high quality way.
Good work.

Ciao Joel,
non conosco questa regione della Francia, ma se essa è disseminata di costruzioni così belle deve essere proprio una delizia. Un piccolo gioiello di architettura che hai catturato evidenziando anche il dolce paesaggio circostante che fa da cornice. Grazie per la condivisione.
Buona serata
Antonio

questi sono paesaggi che ho avuto la fortuna di visitare, incantevoli e molto romantici! Mi piace molto questa chiesa ed il paesaggio che ruota attorno ad essa.
Eccellente il POV e la qualità dello scatto, complimenti.
Un caro saluto.

Salut Joël!
C'est une vue très jolie et vraiment agréable!
C'est une photo merveilleuse!
La netteté, la gestion de la lumière, les couleurs, le pdv choisi, la profondeur, le pp, les contrastes, le format horizontal, l'encadrement gris & blanc et la compo sont excellents!
Merci du partage,
Amitiés,
Neyvan

Joël
Tu as une collection de photos de bâtiments religieux français plus qu'impressionnante et tu nous en montres toute la diversité architecturale. Celle-ci est vraiment originale avec ce superbe clocher-mur qui est très bien mis en valeur dans ta composition. L'intérieur m'a l'air aussi très intéressant.
Amicalement
JJ

Hi Joel,
Nice work, the church and surrounds looks fabulous.
The image is a bit dull for me but I guess this is what happens when you have no sunlight to brighten things up.
I like your composition, too bad you couldn't go just a bit wider to include all of the tower on camera left. It doesn't spoil the image as all of the other elements fir the frame nicely.
Best wishes
Peter

Bonjour Joël,
There are so many nice pieces of good old architecture in your shot, that it seems that this is a picture from the past. Perfectly good composition, where the beautiful tile-roofed buildings, scattered on the such a picturesque landscape, are surrounded with the lush vegetation, and excellent capture of absolutely irreproachable quality!
Best regards,

Bonjour Joël,

On sillonne la France avec beaucoup de plaisir avec tes photos, cette série en est, une fois de plus, la preuve. Une très belle vue sur cette église où l'arrière plan donne beaucoup de relief, j'aime beaucoup cet effet, d'autant que la lumière est agréable. Ta prise de vue sur l'autel est superbe. Beau travail, merci Joël.

Avec toutes mes amitiés et une excellente journée,

Jean-Charles

Hi Joel! The environment is well suited to the church. Architecture Notes also can see the details and colors of the architecture of the church of St. Bartholomew. POV is impressive and the little light gave contrast has a nice effect with the colors of the image. Good day.

Hi Joel,
Good frame to the old church and background houses, clear to see the large bell tower and big bells, thanks for sharing a beautiful and peaceful old village.
Ally

Salut Joel,
bon pdv sur cette église qui se détache ainsi sur le fond de vue campagnarde, bel ensemble de tours et de toitures traditionnelles, bonne netteté.

Bonjour Joel,
very unique structure. Well presented here. I like the presence of a slight fog over the hills. The difference in the visibility makes the buildings to stand out of the background. Great POV to show the amazing context of the architecture.
Have a good weekend,
M
