Les dentelles de Montmirail font partie d'un petit massif rocailleux, situé à l'ouest du Mont Ventoux , les formes dentellées des sommets lui ayant ont donné son nom.
The Dentelles de Montmirail are short, steep mountains with a distinctive rocky ridge, extending west geologically from the Mont Ventoux . The jagged, rocky top is named after the lace (dentelle) it's thought to resemble.

The first thing I notice about this photo is the lighting. I think this is a lovely looking spot, but the light, is just far too harsh. Obviously, you have shot this in the middle of the day, and it just doesn't work here. Perhaps with a combination of a warming filter (81B or 81C) and a polarizer, you could pull this off, but I see you are using a point and shoot, so it is unlikely you are carrying such filters (although I believe Cokin makes a filter holder now that would work). Compositionally, this is ok, but could be improved. You have the ridge pretty much dead center, but I think it would work better if you had aimed to the left, observing the rule of thirds (although, I think horizontally, you are in the right spot). This is clearly a lovely area, and your photo shows that to a certain degree, but to capture the true beauty here, you need to shoot just after sunrise or just after sunset, when the light it much more eye pleasing. I hope this can help.

I think it's a very nice countryside shot with realistic colors due the light...Photography -at least for me - is to show the real scene as it was the moment of taking...that's why i am still stucked with film and avoiding to much digital manipulation apart of some croping or sharpening...I like this shot...

Lighting is too harsh and too flat, focus is out of focus, composition is pretty good, but would be better with some of the right side and a bit of the top cropped. Beautiful location... I just think you need to get it with good light, perhaps one hour before sunset, and meter carefully. I am waiting to see what you'll do with your new camera. (Did you buy it yet?) I think with a better camera we are going to see huge improvements in your shots.

I'll agree that this would be better taken early or late in the day. The mid-day sun robs one of interesting shadows. Without the shadows objects appear 'flat'.
There is nothing quite like the wonderful colors that emerge late in the day with the Purkinje shift. It particularly enhances the earth tones of tile, stucco and rock.
All that said... This shot can be improved. Decrease the brightness. Boost the contrast. Sharpen.
It really is in focus, even though the eye says "not".
The image was (apparently) damaged by the size reduction program that you used. (I can bring it back to crispness by sharpening.)
Play with the cropping. I think there is a better shot living inside this one. Try taking off the bottom (loose the greenhouse).
Take off a lot of the left. Then try a version where you crop off some of the right. Make the 'rocky top' the important subject of the shot.
(And clone out that white dot.)

I am rather "architecture" that "landscape" but the majority of your are brilliant... And I like especially this one... Good job...
Je suis plutôt "architecture" que "paysage" mais la plupart des votre sont géniaux... Celui-ci en fait parti et me plaît particulièrement... Bon boulot...

I find this a lovely portayal of a very special place. The focus is soft and yes the light is a little harsh. But as I do not look for perfection, and prefer that you share your work, I still find this a pleasing photo, thanks Viviane.
