Bonjour Joel

Cette photo me rappelle de bons souvenirs. Ce château est superbe au milieu de la ville. Le regard suit naturellement les douves dans l'image, ce qui lui donne de la profondeur. La lumière et les détails sont superbes.

Amicalement

Serge

Bonjour Joël,

La longueur du canal donne d ela profondeur à l'image. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du pont et des immeubles. La bonne luminosité rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Bonsoir Joël,

Paris ne s'est pas fait en un jour, la Cathédrale de Nantes non plus... Le point de vue sur l'édifice est bien trouvé, et t'a permis d'intégrer un peu de verdure et les tours massives du château. Bonne gestion de la forte différence de luminosité.

Bonne soirée !

Que de beautes chez toi, Joel. Ta galerie est comme une belle emission sur TV5 Monde qui presente les merveilles de la France. C'est un livre qui grossit qui ne cesse pas de grossir de jour en jour.

Ce cliche de Nantes est plutot original en comparaison avec des nombreuses cartes postales qui obligatoirement montrent le Chateau en integral. Tu nous montres ce qui est de cote et c'est une premiere. Avec une remarque aussi, que ton Sony a bien fait face aux ombres qui ne sont pas derangeantes.

Je vois seulement qui tu n'as pas encore mis le pied a Saint- Cirq-Lapopie, le village du Midi Pyrenees qui m'a seduit hier soir a la TV et qui merite l'interet de la Planete.

Bonne continuation et merci!

Hello Joel,
fantastic capture of this place with great perspective. Magnificent postcard of amazing architecture of this city. Beautiful execution with excellent colors, sharpness, clarity. I like this POV and DOF as well. Perfectly well done.
All the best,
Barbara

Joël
Ce château est beau mais je n'ai pas réussi à le photographier correctement lors de mon court séjour là bas : le matin, il était bien éclairé mais on ne pouvait pas rentrer dans la cour avant 10h (je me suis fait expulser sans ménagement par un aimable vigile) et en fin de journée la belle façade n'était pas éclairée. Le point de vue sur les remparts que tu as choisi avec vue sur la ville et la cathédrale est certainement le plus intéressant.
Amicalement
JJ

Hello Joel,

You're capturing well a good aspect of this city by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's intereating and impressive to see the strong castle in Middle Ages and old/elegant buildings located in a line with the road. It's beautiful for the winding moat within the castle walls. And, it's good for the bridge which has connected the passage to the castle.

Kind regards,
mikio

Bonjour Joel,

I love how you have combined the old and the new in this beautifully composed shot. Your aspect takes every advantage of the curved wall, the curved moat and the curved path to guide leisurely from f/g to b/g. Lovely control of the light.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Joël,
All three pictures here from Nantes are very good and give a very good impression, this seems to be a very interesting city. In fact, the Loire valley is indeed a very beautiful area to visit. This main picture is well composed with a combination of old and new. An old castle with an attractive bridge across the moat and modern buildings beside. A very pleasant cityscape!
Kind regards
Gunnar

Bonjour Joel,
Modern building opposite side of the 15th century built fortifications, with the bridges over the wide man-maid trench.
Excelent POV with the two contrasting subjects, DOF and clarity as always
Au revoir,
Ike

Ciao Joel, great view of beautiful city, lovely composition with beautiful pastel colors, splendid light and wonderful clarity, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
