Here’s a view from the magnificent Castle of the Marquise of Maintenon. She was the one who enhanced the beauty of both the castle and the gardens. Let’s mention she were the unofficial lover of Louis XIV.
I really liked the mirror effects given by the water surrounding the castle and the depth given by the canal & gardens. It’s really a lovely place to discover. On the opposite side, you can see from the castle a great aqueduct which makes an amazing perspective on the horizon. I discovered this place when travelling from Paris to Chartres. It was a stunning event to me.

Beautiful, crip, clear. I like all the lines and edges in the shot. Maybe just a bit too much foreground...I would crop some of it off and focus on the castle a little more. Great shot, though.

A wonderful picture of better-than-postcard quality.

C'est un très beau château et les couleurs sont bien saturées. Belle composition.

There are many aspects which make this picture an excellent one.In my opinion the sharpness is the first one,perfect . The DOF too.The composition has been well thought,the alley brings us in the picture and the main subject well positioned.The exposure too is perfect.There is no saturation to be noted You deserve more than 2 points in my opinion.
