Bonjour Joël,

Curieux cette maison qui semble prolonger l'église, le presbytère sans doute.
Belle présentation avec la grille en oblique à l'avanat-plan qui guide le regard. Les éléments en peirre contrastent joliment avec les murs colorés. Belle mise en valeur du clocher.
Bon dimanche,
Roger

Bonjour Joël,

Wonderful warm cold colour contrasts between the red brick building & the blue sky, with impeccable sharpness & perfect composition. The verticals are straight & the fg diagonal axis of the fence adds dynamism. Bon Dimanche et amicalement!

Bonjour, cher Joël,
Très intéressante église, qui rappelle une sorte d'entrée de cour d'école (religieuse ?) !
Son architecture est très intéressante puisqu'elle présente un clocher tour en milieu de nef. Les façades enduites et colorées ne manquent pas d'élégance. Les fleurs donnent des touches de couleurs très agréables.
Amitiés.
Philippe

Hello Joël,
A great point of view on this attractive and unusual church. The railings sweeping in the from the right give the image a certain dynamism and direct the eyes toward the bell tower. Excellent technical presentation. Bon dimanche.

bonjour Joël
Tu as bien placé cette église dans la cadre,j'aime beaucoup le rendu doux des couleurs comme tu sais si bien le faire.La teinte ocre est en parfaite harmonie avec ce ciel.Le petit bouquet de fleurs au bas de l'arbre attire notre œil,il crée le bon contraste en compagnie du feuillage plus sombre et équilibre parfaitement cette composition.
Bon dimanche
Amicalement

Bonjour Joël,

La distance entre la route et l'église donne de la profondeur à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de l'architecture de l'église Saint-Roch. La bonne luminosité met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bon dimanche.

Bonsoir Joël,

Belle présentation de cette église baroque, dont le point fort est le vieux clocher en pierres apparentes ; ton cadrage soigné le met bien en valeur. Par contre, bon courage à ceux qui voudraient photographier la façade, la terrasse ne laisse pratiquement pas de place... mais doit offrir une jolie vue sur la Plaine Orientale.

Bonne soirée !

Sylvain

Hi Joel,

Hi Joel,
Finally local people added color to their church, lovely old architecture completed with a clock tower that built with bricks, nice WS photo to show a bit close to the church, distinct images, well done.

Joël

Olá Joel,

In Portuguese :)

Uma foto bonita desta igreja com composição atraente, o POV é muito bom, desde a cerca que começa na ponta direita da foto para dar profundidade à imagem.

Tenha um bom dia,
Filipe

Hi Joël,
A very good and very well planned photo. The long balustrade is well anchored at the corner of the picture and the tower is well positioned. Excellent colours and a very interesting note!
Kind regards
Gunnar

Salut Joel,
Belle architecture originale avec ces murs aux teintes chaudes et plaisantes, la lumière valorise l'ensemble, si ce n'était la présence de ce clocher on croirait presque voir une habitation.

Hello Joël

Best regards
