Corme-Royal is a French commune in the Charente-Maritime département, Poitou-Charente region. With a population of just over 1500, it lies 15 kilometres to the west of the town of Saintes. It was known as "Corme-la-Forêt" during the Revolution.
The church at Corme-Royal is dedicated to Saint Nazaire. Dating from the 12th century and Romanesque in appearance, it was original the abbey church of a Benedictine priory, which depended on the Abbey of Notre-Dame in Saintes. It was partly fortified in the 15th century.

Good architectural view, stone textures are really good and your light management too, as it is a hard light!!
Good light contrasts and point of view indeed!!
Have a nice day...

Spectacular POV, so well captured. This is a great shot!
I liked the lighting, colour and composition of this shot very much.

Your composition is great using a vertical format for this shot. The height of the tower is emphasized nicely with the vertical format. The upward view gives the tower a dominating appearance. The lighting and colors are fine with excellent sharpness and detail.

Hi Stephen, I really like how you have used the vertical here to emphasise the grandness and size of this beautiful piece of architecture. Great work with the stitching - your skills are well beyond mine, it's all a bit of a mystery. The tones are beautiful and you have done well to avoid blowing out the sky. Great job, Lisa.

L'église et le clocher sont massifs. Une fois encore, la façade est du style roman du Poitou-Charentes, avec ses différents étages. Belle lumière, bonne image. Bravo.

Hello Stephen. Photo and text complement each other also with this photo in the best way. In the upright format the tower is adequately represented. A good shot. Best regards, Wolfgang.

A good upward pov on the old stone tower, with superb sharpness, colour, contrast, & smart choice of a vertical frame. Tfs!

The lovely old tower is seen in bright mid day light that brings out all its fine features as it contrast brilliantly with the clear blue sky.

The deep blue sky over the sandstone colour of this impressive church, is very attractive. Very good stitch and the full size of the high building here is very good.
