Isn't it interesting how different photographers can make the same place so different? I would not have mistaken this for Ciel. You have your own flavor, and both are tres magnifique!

Very beautiful sculpture & very beautifully captured! The monochrome effect and the framing perfectly goes with the mood of the picture! Nicely done!

It's a lovely statue but it does look a bit nippy out.

The black and white is perfect for this scene. And it does look chilly. (Time to find a cozy coffee and pastries shop.)

I can easily believe your weather report since it was quite cool in June last year. And July, I might add.

It looks like a winter's day - the black and white adds to the "chill." Lovely statue and nice setting.

You can almost feel the cold. Great shot, Jacob.

Beautiful shot and the work has added to its beauty.

Vaux-le-Vicomte was the model for what we know now as Versailles. It began as a hunting lodge in a swamp!
