Hello Kristof! Wonderful view. Famous theme. Perfect shot. Good capture. Well done!

Fantastic shot of this very interesting and elevated architecture Kristof. I hope you got a shot from the top too! :). Brilliant composition, the cluster of clouds give a good sense of the altitude and the houses below give a good sense of scale. Well captured, love the natural tones.

Bonjour Kristof
The piece of blue sky save the shot of a sad mood for this exceptional architecture I know well.Maybe I should have cropped a little larger downside ,to show the first wall and towers as well.
Nice postcard however

Hi Kristof
Amaizing castle in West France
Excellent present

Good Morning Kristof,

This was one of the first places that I ever visited in France, many years ago ...! I still have fond memories but what a pity I was not into photography, then!

Your pov, with the whispy clouds haloing the pinnacle, makes it look like a fairy castle! The sharpening is spot on for this enigmatic place.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Olá Kristof,

Très belle vue de ce fameux Mont, de toute beauté ton cadrage, il est très fier, immense, avec une ouverture bleu dans le ciel, mangigique.

Bravo et amitié


Hi Kristof,
Glad to (re)meet you here... Suggestive shot of Mont-Saint-Michel, are you travelling just a little bit, isn't it?

Hi Kristof
a wonderful postcard.
good capture of this magnificent island.
clear and sharp details of the special outline.
great shot, well composed.

Wow, great shot Kristof. Amazing to see that castle perched up there on the hill. The sky could have worked against you here, but that bright spot of blue on the right really saved the sky, and sets off the castle very nicely. Great job.

Hi Kristof,
This must be the winner of all postcards depicting Mont Saint Michel!
The warm lighting is creating a marvellous peaceful atmosphere!
Sharpness is accurate and composition is fabulous!
Great capture well presented.

Hi Kristof,
what a wonderful sight! And what a great POV! Congratulations on this one.
Especially I like the sky with the blue part around the top of the mountain and the different grey tones of the clouds.
Because I am not a real fan of colourful framings I did a small WS on your image - hoping you don't mind me doing so.
Thanks for sharing. Kindest regards, Britta

Hi Kristof,

this time only 3 words: TOP NOTCH WORK!!!! I think these words say it all. I am amazed, impressed, enchanted...speechless when I look at this image. This time you really made outstanding work.

Have a nice week,

What a magnificent castle Kristof! Your presentation is nice, off center steeple, I'm wondering though about more drama. Being a girl, Drama comes naturally! HAHA! I will try a WS..just for my fun, to see what can be done to enhance this marvelous shot!

ciao kristof
soggetto spettacolare
grande pov

Hello Kristof,
Le Mont-Saint-Michel is really magic place.
The first thing when you see it is just... WOW!!! that's so amazing!... It takes a long moment to realise that you should take a camera out and take some pictures... :) That just my experience :)
(there is my shot of that place http://www.trekearth.com/viewphotos.php?l=3&p=1041329)
Great shot!

HI Kristoff
In my eyes this is excellent, from the details of the towers to the shadows, coloring and even the sky cooperated.
Super shot.

hi kristof
I was there at the cooper age...when i WAS YOUNG like you!
thanks for share this beautiful place
have good week and greetings from Varsaw 8by night)

Hi Kristof
What a nice rocky island!
Great details and lighting, faithful colors
The sky gave you over populated clouds which made less contrast
Regards, Alireza

Hello Kristof,
This image is one of the better images showing the detailed architecture and Cathedral. you have captured it under excellent lighting conditions and the clouds add more perspective to the image than a clear sky would have allowed. The shadows work very nicely to add another element to this grand scene.
Excellent work...

Bonjour Kristof,

Quelle vue magnifique sur cet endroit si fréquenté par les touristes et que malheureusement je ne connais pas!!!
C'est superbe mais il vaut mieux ne pas se trouver là quand la mer revient parait-il à l'allure d'un cheval au galop!!!

Hi Kristof,
Excellent capture of this special place in France. The clouded sky and the blue patch creates a fine mood in this view. All the details are very well captured, pin sharp.
