photoblog image Renaissance Fontainebleau castle ceiling 4/5

Renaissance Fontainebleau castle ceiling 4/5

Last saturday I visited with my wife Chantal the Renaissance  Fontainebleau castle (80 kilometers south of Paris) built by François Ist. (1534-1540).
Not being allowed to use my tripod and not having a stabilizer on my camera, the sharpness is not one hundred per cent.

Whoa, incredible ceiling...and look at all the individual portraits that comprise it. The gold makes a beautiful border.
Richard Standley: Quite an amazing place Kevin. I couldn't resist shooting it

A fantastic ceiling. The collective art work makes the entire ceiling a work of art while each individual merits acclaim in its own right. Fine image.
Richard Standley: Thanks for your kind appreciation Don

Il y a tellement de symétrie(s)dans cette prise que l'on peut la découper en morceaux et en faire plusieurs motifs.
Bien vu en tout cas.
Bonne fin de semaine.
Yvon.
Richard Standley: Merci beaucoup Yvon. Bonne fin de semaine à toi également.
Richard
composition plaisante,manque de netteté bien excusable vu l'absence d'un trépieds
Richard Standley: Merci beaucoup Wolfgang
La richesse du plafond est incroyable.
Richard Standley: On a l'impression d'être tout petit dessous

Le style renaissance n'est pas forcément celui que j'admire le plus. Malgré tout, je dois avouer que tes dernières photos ne me laissent pas indifférente. Tous ces ornements sont simplement impressionnants !

A bientôt Richard !
