Castle of Sable sur Sarthe  Sarthe France by hubert61

I don't know what exactly it is about this photograph, but it really speaks to me. The mood you've created here is just amazing- very dark and almost ominous, like the gathering clouds before a storm.
It really impresses me how sharp everything is. The outlines of the rooftops against the clouds are especially nice. If they were just even a little blurred out it wouldn't be nearly as impressive. The colors are just lovely, too- very contrasty without being too artificial looking.
The composition is killer. Great use of the rule of thirds. I like how you've used the curve of the river to draw us into the photograph. It makes the photo seem more dynamic that way, giving it a sense of movement that evens out the squareness of the buildings.
At first I was a little distracted by the cars in the bottom left of the photo and almost wished they weren't there. But, looking at it further, I kind of like them. Like the boat on the right hand side, they create a sense of contrast between the old and the new and show the presence of humanity here that you wouldn't really get if it was just the houses. No, I can't really think of anything I would change here. It's beautiful.

thank you very much of this criticism.
I just arrived from a day on the beach with no shoes waterproof :)
This photo as another enters an idea, a project, trying to show how the ancient and the modern coexist.
For cars and the signs that go with, I hesitated to keep. I kept them because they are part of the landscape.
The boat show as vehicles of human presence as you so well.
The curve also led us to Christ, who also represents humanity.

Thank you very much,
also remind you that this is a snapshot :)
