Hi Joel - a good low angle to show the ruin against the good clouds and sky.
cheers

Hi Joel
Very good photo especially depth and nature of BG,very well done.TFS

Hello Joel,
I think its the plume of white cloud and the contrasting blue sky which stands out most. The old castle and the white mast looks good with the proximate green.Well lit and sharp.Regards
Ranjan

Bonjour Joel,
This is a nicely composed shot! The square format works fine here. The addition of the trees in the foreground add foreground interest and color for the shot. The sky is great and you have captured it nicely.
TFS,

Bonjour Joël,

Le château est bien placé dans le cadrage. La prise de vue permet de distinguer les détails et les couleurs de l'architecture du château des Comtews de Toulouse. La bonne luminosité fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journée.

Hello Joel,
another impressive composition and fabulous framing. This place and ruin architecture are wonderful and very interesting. The cloudy sky gives a marvellous touch to the image. Spectacular view. I really love it. Thanks for sharing.
All the best,
Barbara

Bonjour Joel,

Le château a certainement vécu des heures plus glorieuses, mais ce qui en reste de dresse fièrement , très droit dans un environnement rugueux.Les nuages sont très beaux.

Amicalement

Bonsoir Joël,

Ce château a encore de beaux restes ! On devine, à droite, une partie du panorama sur la Vallée du Rhône. Aujourd'hui, il n'y a guère que l'orage et ces gros nuages qui menacent au-dessus des ruines du château, quelques siècles en arrière, c'étaient des troupes armées... Bonne gestion de la lumière, qui t'a évité le rendu parfois "cramé" des cumulus.

Bonne soirée !

Sylvain

Una nuvola che ..entra in scena splendidamente e incorona l castello e impreziosisce il cielo.
Roccia calcare e un a profondità verso la valle ..con grande nitidezza .
