Sorry I still continue with cliches, everyone probably knows where this is (at least its not the cliffs of Etretat), I defer to Jean Yves' photo for info on the chateau. This was taken on a late morning in october, unfortunately the sunlight was at the other side of the building, but it helped illuminate the tips of the leaves, I had to sit on the (damp)grass to make sure the bottom of the leaves did not touch the top of the towers.

Wonderful image Tan, and welcome back!
colorful image, light is really amazing and Chambord is a real magic place!

Ah...my favorite chateau! I like the illumination you achieved through the leaves. These leaves also frame the chateau very nicely.

Good management of the light here and beautiful vivid colours. I think it's great picture with nice depth and POV.

Beautiful picture, although, I think that the portion of the tree in the foreground is very strong and distracting and it fight with the castle for attention. In my modest opinion, it could be cropped approx. 1/5 at the top.

Hi Tan, once again you did a very nice composition. Although the sun was at the other side, you managed very well to see this part of the castle well illuminated. Very good idea for having the green branches ocuping a big part of the sky, and also very well for sitting on the grass to avoid them to touch the towers, you converted the photography to a risk sport! I can imagine you there. Very well done Mr.Yilmaz. Best regards.
PS: ...Waiting for your last travel shots!

Very nice composition of this castle.
Ì like the natural frame you made with the leaves of the tree.
Excellent POV and DOF.

Back from vacaion, time to get back at work for me. Great image here. Good composition and POV. The grass is maybe a bit too saturated. It does not look realistic for an october shot.

I like your view too, very clear as usual, and you present this nice house without the hordes of tourists but with some splendid autumn colors. I suggest you minor adjustments in the WS.
Have a nice day,

Its quite skillful to think that idea really (being mindful about the leaves i mean..)
This is a very good shot Tan, very well thought and executed,
A beautiful view with a good DOF and sharpness.

Indeed a little house... but not for me... Nothing's wrong with the cliffs of Etretat, Tan. Yesterday I was there to and tried to make some shots, maybe the coming days I will upload some... from another angle as usual.

An original composition about this classical cliche. Very well done, with a good light.
jrleborgne (1554) 2005-11-18 18:18
C'est juste un petit peu loin du centre-ville !
Mais cela me conviendrait quand même comme pavillon de chasse.
