[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Built in 1855, this gothic architecture was designed by Casimir Coursolles, an architect from Montreal. He took his inspiration from the Notre-Dame basilica of Montreal . 14 years were required to complete its construction. Today, the population of the village is 2160 people.

Image taken on Thursday, while we travelled along the Chemin du Roy until Deschambault. We enjoyed dinner in a lovely pub before heading back home via the Expressway.

Technically : As I was shooting it upward with my wide angle,, to capture the sky and both towers, using Photofiltre I reduced the distortion without eliminating it (^_^). Resized, sharpened and framed.
ISO 100 Focal 18 MM Time 15:06 hrs No Exposition compensation

Back tonight . I am heading to work after 10 days off (^_^).

Hi Robert,
very sweet exposure - as always :-))
The orange fall colours go nicely with the rich blue in the sky.

Best regards, Daniel

Great contrast between tree, basilica and sky. Well composed and framed as usual.


Hello Robert.
Very nice composition with the autumnal tree and blue sky. I like presence of a car and a person in the photo. It gives us a sense of scale.

Beautiful capture! The rich tones and deep saturation of this shot are excellent. A well chosen POV, with great timing - the flag lower-left is in full flap!

Hello Robert!
How you can obtain so wonderful colours? More image or is just because of filter?
Great blue sky, nice architecture and excelelnt point of view!
Perfect clarity!
Best regards!

Ciao...mi piace moltissimo
questa foto
in particolare
per i colori del cielo
e dell'edificio
che fanno contrasto con i colori
delle foglie

Lovely shot, Robert. Nice subject, and there is something I really like about light church steeples disappearing into the clouds, especially with the CP filter. Nice fall colors too! I think you did a good job getting that car to almost disappear, too. You might want to play with some different crops on the left -- a slight one to get rid of the white house, and a more radical one (vertical) to get rid of the while brick building on the left, though I do like the fleur-de-lys in the bg!

Robert, what an eye-catching thumbnail. AND this looks even better.
I like how the light grey cathedral is pointing up to the dark clouds.
The tree colour stands out and suits the brick building too.
And even the blue and white flag emphasises the blue and white sky

Hello Roberts,

Your "Thanksgiving mood" is excellent presented, the colors, light and clarity are excellent, impressive POV as well. TFS
Best regards,

Splendid mood, colours, contrasts.
Overall a great photo.
Also you've managed to capture some autumn colours.
Maybe if the tree was more to the right.


Bonjour Robert
Bravo, tu as su trouver l'angle qu'il fallait pour immortaliser ce temple que j'ai photographié à maintes reprises sans jamais être satisfait. Ta composition est superbe avec cet arbre aux couleurs automnales et ce ciel contrasté d'un bleu pré-hiver. Les détails sont très précis et aucun élément indésirable dans le décor.
Bravo encore

Hello Robert,
Excellent autumn scene--the nice white church, the intense blue sky with the dramatic clouds, the colorful houses, the yellow tree, the soft light.

great shot Robert! love the tones, composition and the tree is a big plus. Tfs


Lovely shot.

J'aime beaucoup celle-ci, les couleurs, l'architecture qui découpe super bien sur ce ciel dramatique. Une vraie belle composition, presqu'en 3D.
