Tu as réussi le grand chelem... un beau ciel bleu mais avec quelques nuages, du soleil mais pas trop, une touche humaine mais pas gênante, des batiments de niveau, un bassin centré... et et c'est parfait.

love this! The composition is wonderful as the shallow oval shape of the fountain pool just sweeps you into the image and makes it all so irresistible. Gloriously sharp and magnificent clarity make this a real quality image. Looks so beautiful beneath a captivating blue sky!
Enjoy the weekend - B.

I see that you are relatively new on TE, welcome!
I like the rich colors in this photo. I appreciate the fact that you tired successfully to fit the entire reflection pool in the frame. It provides an excellent visual foundation for the palace.

veyr pretty picture of good quality composition. The POV is classic and offers very good perspective towards the palace through the fountain. The foreground is strong but does not take interest from the architecture. Very well saturated colors and good sharpness add to the final result.
Thanks for sharing

A wonderful composition with the source and pleasant gardens, as foreground, while the background we see a varied and beautiful buildings, beautiful sky that is a good complement to the image.
Very well managed the brightness and sharpness, with a beautiful color, in these natural tones.
