j'aime bien l'effet de contraste entre le premier plan net et coloré et le Mont Saint Michel en demi-teinte comme toile de fond. L'idée est intéressante.

A really magical shot. The building in the distance looks like something from some epic fantasy film, and I would expect the foregroUnd to be filled with huge battles between monsters. But instead of that, you have the scene filled with these placid shep creating a wonderful sense of calm. The mist is perfectly suited to the whole view. Really nicely done, thanks for sharing. Great note too.

I really liked the composition here. The river leads nicely to the abbey. The sheep provide some interest. Excellent.

hello antoine, very interesting foreground with a classical background that seems floating in the air

A very nice capture, the lush green grazing grass with sheep giving a nice focal point leading to the main subject covered in a hazy mist.
