une magnfique photo avec un effet miroir de très belle qualité.
J'aime bien le rythme amené par la végétation, renforcé par la lumière.

the rainy skies add atmosphere and a different perspective to this fountain and its setting. A glorious reflection making it all the more appealing and intriguing. Wonderful place and capture.
Enjoy a peaceful weekend - B.

Though it was not under a best daylight, the image is well applied. Most charming with the green surrounding reflection and the golden Apollo fountain in the water. Nice is the pattern of the trees both around the pool and the mirror beautifully collected.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

You're capturing well Fountain in the Garden by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the wide fountain surrounded by the lush green. It's also tasteful for the cloudy sky. And, the reflection projected to the founatain draws out a good atmosphere.

We get almost three pictures in one image.
In foreground nice reflections, in centre Apollo, with a nice small forest in background.
Great composition, lovely presentation with pleasant colours.
But I like your wonderful photograph work.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Attractive panoramic of the Apollo Fountain within the green tinged pond with trees mirrored on the glassy surface.
This weekend would not be a good time to visit the Versaille Palace because the crazy Kardshian wedding there and all of the wacky attendees.
Thanks for sharing,

Such a different feel to this shot compared to your link to the older one. in the older one, the fountain is the centre of attention and looks huge, but in this the fountain is small and draws attention to the vastness of this lake and gardens. A beautiful composition on thirds and the cloudy sky adds a great mood.
Thanks for the link too, though I commented on it before, a pleasure to see it again :)

A very nice picture with natural colors and careful composition and a more perfect mirror effect.
Good weekend to you.

nonostante il cielo cupo, sei riuscita a comporre una foto magnifica, compreso lo splendido riflesso.
Cricri (123774) 2014-05-25 3:55
Bel effet de miroir sous le ciel dramatique, bon rendu du vert des arbres, belle présentation
mirosu (16273) 2014-05-25 4:32
Excellent view to nice water pond with beautiful fountain. The light is excellent, the reflections on calm water outstanding. Beautiful photo work.
Very well done.
Royaldevon (41825) 2014-05-25 6:11
The fact that the sun is not shining I feel is an asset. We so often find times when only clouds adorn the sky but it is good to recognise that it is an opportunity to capture a different mood.
The reflections are still wonderful though the mood is softened.
The inclusion of the figures was an eye-opener! It revealed the amazing scale!
Have a good day,

Even the dark cannot dampen the calmness projected by this image, so peaceful and beautiful. Good lighting and sharp details even the reflections. Very well done, tfs.

very nice reflections in the water, very good sharpness, well done, congratulations!
batalay (39953) 2014-05-26 6:04
A genuinely seren photo of the pond with the gilded chariot fountain in the shadow of large trees. You've composed the shot judiciously and photographed it perfectly.
gildasjan (43824) 2014-05-26 9:45
Le ciel est gris mais le rendu du contraste bien dosé donne du caractère à cette image.Bien le cadrage avec cette symétrie.
Silvio1953 (150323) 2014-05-26 10:58
Ciao Gosia, lovely composition with fascinating reflections, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Witaj Gosiu, ładne zdjęcie z We3salu, nie szkodzi, że poranek był deszczowy. Bardzo ładna kompozycja i spokojny nastrój, o co tam pewnie trudno.
Juz jestem z powrotem w domu. Polecam Ci Wiedeń na krótki wypad. . Urocze miasto, jest co oglądać i fotografować.
rychem (40701) 2014-05-27 8:44
Odbicia jak marzenie, obiekt klasy deluxe, zdjęcie na medal :)
Kielia (24077) 2014-05-27 8:50
I have already seen many different images of this famous place – but you have captured a very special mood! The light and the colors are really wonderful. The perfect reflections make the image very attractive! My compliments!
PiotrF (21538) 2014-05-27 11:36
Ostatnio mialem tam niestety podobna pogode... chyba jednak gorsza bo Ty mialas przynajmniej szanse wylapania ciekawych odbic w lustrze wody co mi nie bylo dane.
W tym szerokim kadrze zrobilas to ciekawie i efekt jest znakomity.
COSTANTINO (68214) 2014-05-27 13:25
wonderful reflection shot in double

excellent light management

surronding reflection and the golden
Apollo shot with symmetry and great
have a nice time

na wzor wersalu postawiono podobny palac na bawari na wyspie ktora jest na jeziorze Chiemsee nawet podobne sa te fontanny i figury,podoba sie,pozdrawiam
SWEETFREEDOM (24621) 2014-05-28 11:08
even with bad weather you have done a wonderful job. i like the vibrant colors and reflections.
pierrefonds (69813) 2014-05-30 5:10
Les reflets sur l'eau sont des atouts à la composition. L'étendue du bassin donne la profondeur à la scène . La prise de vue permet de voir les détails à la fontaine. Le ciel nuageux donne un bon contraste aux couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
delpeoples (59434) 2014-06-05 7:29
Witaj dear Gosia
What a beautiful photo, so full of symmetry and amazing reflections despite the overcast conditions. The green colours are superb and the sharpness is admirable. Well done.
Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful day

Mükemmel bir çekim,mükemmel kadraj.
Yansıma konusunda dersa verilecek bir kompozisyon.
Hellas (7003) 2014-09-12 22:13
This is a great image!
The reflection in the water creates a symmetric composition with a perfect lighting and fantastic details!
unclehotshot (4000) 2014-10-20 8:45
This is a wonderful shot I think. The grey sky is often a problem, but here it seems you turned it into an advantage. Great compo with the big surface area reflecting. The square cloud is really cool, and you managed to get double because of the reflexion.
