Bonjour Joël,

Les maisons cadrent bien le château. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de l'architecture des maisons et du château. La bonne luminosité met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.


Bonjour Joel,

Elle surplombe bien le village, la porte du château.Un point de vue parfait qui nous montre bien les toits des maisons environnantes, le tout sous une superbe lumière.



Hello Joël,
A classic view from this attractive town that benefits greatly from the lovely ambient light. The detail in the architecture is very well rendered with very good colours and sharpness.

excellent view from old texture with shard roofs you captured.

Hi Joël,

We are back in rainy Sweden now after a very pleasant holiday in France. Once again, our sincere thanks for all your efforts.

This is indeed another beautiful part of France and a very sunny and enjoyable picture. The red brick roofs and the stone walls are very attractive against the blue sky.

Kind regards

PS I also uploaded a workshop version to this photo, taken fron the other side!

Ciao Joel,
grande sapienza nel proporre questi siti interessantissimi, sia dal punto di vista della scelta del soggetto, che da quella puramente fotografica!
Complimenti per le note come sempre molto complete.
Un caro saluto

Bonjour Joël
Une belle lumière sur tous les toits couverts de tuiles avec l'entrée du château qui domine l'ensemble et donne une impression de protéger le village, le tout sous un beau soleil.

Bonsoir Joël,

Le château a fière allure, au-dessus de ces toits de tuiles et de ces terrasses où il doit être bien agréable de prendre un verre et de profiter du paysage environnant... Excellent cadrage, et lumière à l'avenant : encore une belle découverte !
