A beautiful detail work on this, such intricate tilework to create this fine piece of design. And an excellent note as well.
This is really an eyecatching shot, nicely done.

Salut Jean Philippe,
une très belle photo, bien nette. J'imagine que le sujet est de grande dimension.
Il s'en dégage beaucoup de douceur et de légèreté, c'est très vaporeux.
