Classic photography, Chambord

One view.
Other view.

All the famous monuments of the Earth were photographed by the millions of times, what will by no means forbid to make still and still the other photos...

More of 1 000 000 tourists visit the chateau of Chambord every year.

The North-West facade of the château de Chambord 16th 17th 18th 19th centuries.
The chateau, of Renaissance style, was built according to the plan of the fortified castles of the Middle Ages, as a donjon formed by its four big towers, directed in cardinal points, before being completed by a surrounding wall.

It is FRANÇOIS Ier, 1494-1547, king builder, which launched in 1519 the construction of the château de Chambord, which ended in 1690 under the reign of king of France Louis XIV, 1638-1715. This castle was built in place of a ancient fortress of the Comtes de Blois.

The château de Chambord, the vastest of châteaux de la Loire, is in a 5433 hectares park which extends over the municipalities of Saint-Dyé-sur-Loire, Muides-sur-Loire, Thoury, Maslives, Neuvy, Tour-en-Sologne, Huisseau-sur-Cosson. The castle and its park were intended for the hunting. The castle is situated on a curve of river Cosson, small tributary of Beuvron, tributary of the Loire.

Hi Joël,
I cannot agree more; this is indeed the classical view of this very famous castle. You have definitely made an improvement to the usual photo by adding the green vegetation in the foreground. A very readable note as well, the perfect TE upload!
Kind regards
Gunnar

Hello Joel,the title chosen is perfect,this is without doubt a very fine photograph.So beautifully composed and presented,a real work of art.
Simply stunning.
My Very Best Regards Les.

Salut Joel.
Classique , mais absolument superbe!!!!
Grande classe.
Bravo.

Bonjour Joël,

Une vue certes classique mais toujours agréable surtout quand, comme c'est le cas ici, elle est de grande qualioté avec, une fois encore, un excellent usage d'un ciel couvert qui n'écrase pas les couleurs et permet néanmoins de beaux reflets. Et en plus, pour moi, un souvenir.
Bonne journée,
Roger

Bonjour Joel,
spectacular view. I like it very much. The composition so symmetric yet so original. The plants in the foreground make a huge difference and a fantastic introduction and decoration here. Very difficult light but you have turned it to your advantage. The processing added almost a three dimensional feeling here.
Excellent photo of this famous castle.

Hello Joel,
Superb shot of a classical looking castle which you have augmented by adding the plants and leafs at the bottom and giving it a frame.

Best Regards
Ranjan

Hello Joël,

fantastique iamge, grandisose compo quel château avec les reflets, un bijou, on admire.

Bravo et amitié

Nicou

Salut Joel,
Classique mais toujours plaisant à regarder, surtout lorsque c'est bien mis en valeur comme sur ta vue, le premier plan et les reflets complètent parfaitement la présentation.

Bonjour Joel

C'est un côté du Château que l'on ne voit pas souvent. Il fallait aller à contre courant des sentiers de visiteurs ce qui donne un belle encadrement de verdure et d'eau.

Impeccable

Serge

Salut Joël!
C'est une photo très belle!
Le château est magnifique, c'est sûr, toutefois, avec la qualité de cette image il s'est devenu encore plus beau! Les reflets, la compo symmetrique, la lumière et les couleurs douces et le pdv choisi, avec ces plantes dans l'avant plan m'ont plu beaucoup!
Merci du partage,
Amitiés,
Neyvan

Hi Joel

an extraordinary chateau, so beautiful to look at. Impressive architecture and a great POV. Nice reflection too.

Chris

Hi Joel
stunning, simply stunning!
perfectly centred, well positioned. excellent sharpness, and with the almost overcast sky, the lighting seems to almost blend in with the color of the Castle.
lovely shot
cheers

Hello Joel,
This is a great composition, quiet, soft tones, greens in the foreground, a reflection of the castle and the clouds - this is the best perspective for the magnificent photographs of architectural landmarks. I congratulate you on success!
With best regards,
Irena

Salut Joel classique, très belle et très bien encadrée par les arbustes en avant-plan. Une image superbe et majestueuse gentiment éclairée par une très belle, faible, lumière .
Amitiés
Letizia

Bonjour, cher Joël,
oui, c'est une vue classique de cette vraie icône parmi les châteaux de la France, capté au moyen d'un cadrage conventionnel, mais qui de cette façon nous offre toute son élégance et sa beauté impressionnante.
La luminosité d'un jour avec beaucoup de nuages est très bien traitée, en donnant un bon résultat dans la qualité de l'image et des couleurs.
C'est une composition splendide, très bien réalisée.
Bien amicalement,
Josep

certes elle est classique mais tres reussi d'autant plus avec ce ciel gris....tu as reussi à eclairer de maniere tres agreable ce merveilleux chateau
bravo
bonne soirée
vero

Joel cordials greetings. A very beautiful classic postcard of Chambord, technically very well. A good work, congratulation. Have a good night and happy weekend, thanks for sharing.

Hi Joel,
a fabulous view with beautiful composition, I like the attractive foreground and the reflection, the POV is superb. Great shot, Tfs! Have a nice evening! Kellemes estét kívánok!

Hi Joel,

What a superb shot with nice reflection and the image is very sharp with pleasing colors. The green plant and grass with lupines on the foreground definitely enhance the beauty of the image.

Bonsoir Joël,
Peut-être parce qu'elle est la meilleure formation classique, mais pas étonnant, parce que la beauté de ce château avec ses reflets dans l'eau est une carte postale.
J'aime le contraste qui donne l'avant-plan, il pourrait faire un peu spécial par rapport aux autres.
Une symétrie parfaite et une grande perspective et de définition.
Amicalement,
Charo

Buonasera caro Joel
e lasciamo pure che questa sia una foto che si può chiamare classica. ma non credo che le due erbe tu non le abbia volute per il primo piano:-) una con la foglia ovale l'altra a forma di nastro. è classico anche questo? non credo. il riflesso tremolante ha qualcosa dei castelli delle bandes dessinée, qui si può riconoscere Chambord solo da esso. è un classico ma con la tua firma insomma. bellissimo.
buon venerdì
amicalement

Hi Joel!
A different pov, but a very good photo! This castle is always impressive. I like the plants in foreground and the reflection also.Seems it was a little cloudy but I like the result!

Joël
Classique peut-être mais d'une grande beauté (les 3!). Tu étais là juste au bon moment quand la lumière de l'après midi vient éclairer la face la plus photographiée du château et le premier plan et le beau ciel complètent à merveille l'image.
Amicalement

finally you have found the most beautiful POV on this famous castle here!
This impression is classic in every sense. The moody light, the gentle colors and the framing by the green plants - everything is wonderful. A great capture!

classique mais bien composé

Hello Joël
Long I was not present at the TE in your gallery found a bunch of beautiful works, so I do not know that prior to grade.
I am leaving with the assessment of this.
This is perfection.
Best regards

Bonjour Joel
Une belle image, certes, classique mais il est claire qu'on doit aussi savoir faire le classique pour pouvoir le transgresser!!! Merci pour tes leçons!

une vue classique, soit, mais avec une profondeur, un piqué et des contrastes exceptionnels.
Excellent

Hi Joel, What a stunning piece of architecture showing real class, it is wonderfully symmetrical & beautifully detailed, the photo has a nice rippling reflection & I like the addition of the greenery in the foreground, kind regards Wilson.

Bonsoir Joel,
Une photo classique, mais très élégante avec son feuillage en avant plan. Ce château est une merveille, on ne se lasse pas de l'admirer. Beau travail.

Bonjour Joel,
I would love to have that kind of classic in Ireland ;) I am getting filled with envy ;)
I am a big fan of reflections as well. This photo shadowless and well balanced doesn't disturb the eye. The foreground makes it even more attention grabber.

Ciao Joel, bellissima immagine ... da fiaba. POV. ben studiato con il verde in primo piano e l' incantevole riflesso ed il tutto brillante e nitido. Complimenti Joel ed un saluto .... Marino

Hello Joel,
We where at the same castle, except, I've been in 2008. I remember this castle well, which impresse me a lot.. An amazing architecture. I did uploaded pictures of this castle before. I like more your picture of this castle better, because you have more beautiful POV. I like it a lot your version. Thanks for sharing,
All the best,
Barbara

Salut Joël
Chambord à 80 km de chez moi.
J'y vais de temps en temps, la verdure en avant-plan met en valeur la vue sur le château, le cadrage est bien équidistant. Bien sûr ce château est tellement visité mais on découvre toujours de bonnes idées pour en faire plus.
Bien cordialement

Hello Joël,

Classic, or not, it's a beautiful
castle and it's a beautiful picture.
I like also the forground in this
picture, it's a nice extra.
