[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Few weeks ago I uploaded an image of Mont-Saint-Michel, a really beautiful and special place in France. The image was quite popular, so I uploaded another one from another POV, captured from more distance. This time I applied a square format with postcard style. I hope you will like it!

Great shot, the triangular sharp looks excellent. Certainly a post-card style shot, nice inclusion of the green FG. The gloomy clouds add to the scene too.

this deserves a big Applause Kristof... a postcard indeed.. amazing architecture, a place to definitely visit one day... superb capture and I like the soft green color and the contrast with the gloomy sky and the architecture, very fine lighting and a brillient presentation from all angles...

have a nice day Kristof

Hi Kristof,

Very beautiful presentation of this charming French place. The format and framing are excellent!



Good Morning Kristof,

Who couldn't be enchanted by the beauty of this magical place!
The lack of a blue sky has not spoilt this shot but it has helped to emphasise the lovely grass tones.
Lovely composition and distinct 'moody' impression.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Kristof,

Nice postcard! The structure looks very imposing and the cloudy sky adds to the mood. Very nice lead-in from the grass and water to the church.


Hi Kristof,

I haven't seen you much around in the past couple of days, but it is nice to see you again today. I hope you had a nice weekend.

This is wonderful shot. Impressive, perfect postcard of this magnificent place. Technically it is excellent.

I really need to go there one day. Have a nice week,

Hi Krtistof
Excellent POV and composition with great natural colours and light and yet, a very good detail. Your capture gives a fantastic perspective of the place.
Congrats, mb

Hi Kristof,
Impressive how you captured this well know and wonderful place in France. Like the low light here, the weather wasn't excellent but the light perfect, showing Mont-Saint-Michel very well. I'm not sure about the perfect sharpness though. A higher f-stop would be better in my opinion, to get everything really sharp. Nonetheless the overall impression is you did a wonderful job!

Bom dia Kristof

I have seen this photo..but I have no points and I haven´t seen to whom it belongs. It´s you.!!!!
It´s a wonderful place and you composed it very , very well.
Poetry dear kristof
My regards

Nice POV, lovely postcard, Kristof.
Beautiful architecture and fine presentation.
Congratulations, my friend.
