Versailles Reflections (Weekend Reflections # 295)

Versailles, France

I looked into a window at The Château de Versailles but I couldn't see past the Christmas tree. So I focused on the reflection of the building and people behind me.

Happy Reflecting!
Monday is Memorial Day in the U. S.

Love this - Capturing so much of the beautiful old building...the pedestrians too! The evergreen looks like it's either an overlay or double exposure- framing your main subject perfectly!

There are so many interesting things going on in this reflection photo...the pedestrians, the building, the fir tree and all the different angles!!

Margaret Adamson said...

yes James I knew that but was trying to say how the trees framed the reflected building but I put it badly before!

The tree makes for an interesting background. The Château is so stunning.

Beautiful photo, James.
Versailles is a fun place to go to.
I liked the outside better than the inside, somehow.
Have a Beautiful Weekend!
Peace :)

In high school I wrote a term paper on the Versailles. I was enamored of anything French due to my fabulous teacher of French who had studied at the Sorbonne. So of course, I love this reflection!

You got a great effect here, James. I'm glad you knew how to do it.
