Hello dear friend,

I'm starting a new project with all my photos of Grande-Vallée and surroundings. I'm making and selling some wishes cards for the Fund-Raising of "Village en chanson de Petite-Vallée". I am the chair of board for this organization which lives and grows with the dedication and commitment of many volunteers. This will be my campaign contribution.

RAW photo converted in TIFF and post processed with PhotomatixPro (HDR programm). I especially like the light falling on my village just before the sunset.

Bonjour Annie,

Très joli HDR en effet, utilisé avec discrétion il est difficile de savoir si c'est une lumière idéale ou du HDR. Il y a tellement de gens qui s'en servent avec abus. Il y a de beaux volumes dans les nuages et j'aime bien les bandes lumineuses verticales que nous retrouvons dans l'eau. Bravo, une autre belle version de ce paysage de ton coin de pays. TFS.

Hi Annie,
This is outstanding! A great HDR treated panorama with glorious warm lighting effect!
A very sharp image from an agreeable POV. Beautiful sky with such cloud formations. I like the tree on the left serving as a natural frame. Quite a considerable depth into the perspective.
Very neat work.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Hello Annie :)

Splendid panorama of this city, sea and sky.
Very interesting, spectacular picture, his colours and light.
The splendid, showy realization...congratulations!

Friendly greetings :)

Hi Annie,

This is a beautiful composition of your village and a wonderful start to your project. The sky is full of drama and the coastline with all those little buildings frames the image well, along with good use of the tree on the left. This is a lovely well thought out composition.



Beautiful shot of your lovely town Annie! Nice HDR image, Love the drop shadow frame also! Congratulations on your project I hope it does very well!

Dear Annie,

Such a wonderful scenic view with such lovely colors!
I love the cloud formation which brings immense mood into the scene.
The colors of the buildings and their well placement within an elegant framed picture is well seen.
The sharpness and clarity are well kept.
The trees (on the left) add another piece of charm and beauty to this work.
Well done!

Best regards,

A very striking panorama which includes a variety of elements that from your POV come together into a unified composition. Great light on the buildings contrast very well against the cloudy sky with the trees on the left providing a frame to the whole image.
Very Well Done

When I saw this shot in the gallery, I knew that it was one of yours! Its still a beautiful scenery wich is changing every time.
And indeed, it looks like a postcard. So good luck with your project! This is a beautiful contribution! I love the warm colours over the city and the composition with the trees on the left site. You've captured a great sky here!

Superb work.
Good luck with this project !!!

Hi Annie
It's a beautiful landscaping image.
Outstanding light and sharpness as well as the coloring.

Bonjour Annie,

Ravissante composition, léger HRD a écrit Alain, pour moi pas encore essayé, mais ici l'effet est merveilleux. Jolie armature avec le végétal ci-contre, les reflets argentés et discrets se mirant sur l'eau donne une image excellente. Présentation appréciable. Bravo et TFS.
Salutations amicales:)

Une scène inspirante et magique ...composé de ton magnifique village, d'un ciel habité par des nuages toujours changeant au gré des vents, et que dire de cette lumière qui anime le tout pour notre plaisir. Le "HDR" est manié avec une main de maître.

Heureux de te voir publier à nouveau. Bonne chance avec la vente de tes photos, elles feront fureurs.
