Hello dear friends,

Another photo of my village! I don't want bore you with this view, but many members, in the past ask me to post various views of my village from various seasons. This one is added at my collection for wishes cards for the Dan Gaudreau Fund-Raising of "Village en chanson de Petite-Vallée". This is my campaign contribution.

RAW photo converted in HDR with Photomatix Pro 4.1.
I did a copy of the result on my JPG conversion'copy to keep my exif data.

Another marvelous shot from you, Annie!
Great focus on the church at far with amazing clarity and splendid contrasts.
The golden tones of the landscape add another piece of beauty to the scene.
Well done!



Quel beau spectacle de fin de journée, lumière exquise.
C'est l'heure bleue je présume.
Excellente photo bien équilibrée avec un pov idéal.
Bravo !

Bonsoir Annie,
Belle prise de vue de ton village Grande-Vallée,
C'est toujour agréable de voir le fleuve sous différente saisons,
Excellent point de vue et magnifique présentation,
Jolies couleurs naturelles...et beau cliché..

I never get tired of seeing this Annie! Beautiful shot, excellent sharpness, I love the curve of the shoreline! The church is just an amazing focal point!

Hi Annie.

Such striking gold tones over the building, very appealing indeed. The active sky with the way the light catches them makes for a beautiful scene. I like the division of light and dark throughout this image, they balance so well. TFS

Stv :0))

Bonjour Annie
Si il y avait un tel panorama au pied de ma maison, je crois que je ferais comme toi...
Superbe POV, avec deux lignes d'horizon, les nuages semblant former une barrière au dessus du paysage et la mer qui lui offre comme un écrin...
La lumière de ce début de soirée est superbe, elle éclaire bien cette pointe de l'île et fait ressortir les habitations d'une façon prodigieuse...

Ciao Anie, great POV of lovely place, fantastic sky with long cloud, splendid light and fantastic colors, very well done, my friend,
ciao Silvio

Bonsoir Annie

Nice to see you posting again. Despite the difficulty in loading & critiquing. Ive noticed some overall improvement but there is still room for the site's operation to load faster. Good color & sharpness. A perfectly level horizon & the sunlit spire of the wooden church adds interest. I would add some yellow in photoshop. Seems a bit blue on my monitor. Tfs!

Another gorgeous shot from Grand Valee, Quebec. Part of a series. Janos the Gabbypal (Facebook friend!)

Bom dia Annie
There is a certain jealousey looking to this very beautiful place and imaging your home staying there day by day to have this incredible view. It is not foe all...well composed with a friendly architecture with good colors and textures. Your HDR has worked well.
Um abraço
