This is the best image of St.Michel ever taken by human being.
Great image indeed.
Abolutely gorgeous. The composition, colours and detail are amazing! V++
Stunningly done ... they don't come any better than this one ... v
Canon G5. Returned it back to the store after trip. This generated so much noise in the skies, that to fix it;
1. I copied the layer
2. Erased skies from new layer
3. Blurred the skies on background layer to get rid of noise
4. Adjusted saturation, contrast and brightness on both layers
5. Blended layers and run unsharp mask at 165, 1.8, 3.0
The rest of gallery is no good, LOL ?
It is so perfect it seems surreal! What equipment did you use? PP?
PHOTOGRAPHIC ARTISTRY...LOVE IT! "SUNSET HUNTER"
This is terrific!!!!!!!!!
Gotta agree with Eric Aubrey this sucks and I so wish it was mine. V
Fantastic image! Great light, framing etc etc
Fantastic work Eldar! v
this is so good and beautiful! V
Nothing to say more. Just appreciate and Vote of course !! Beautiful. Patrick
bonjour Eldar !
you are a magicien ! magnifique !
Eric, sorry for upsetting you so much ! Also, kudos to you as I respect emenies who don't show their faces behind the masks and pseudonyms. Don't forget, though, it's artistic representation of St. Michel, besides I am not trying to impose anything here, while rather expressing my cincere fascination of beauty of France. You definitely would never understand it... One could see thousand things which might've gone terribly wrong with any particular image , but the most important thing that counts is an overall impression and message it delivers. This image was bought by Ministry of Culture of France for $2,680 Euros, so I think they know better what is the most beautiful image of St. Michel since they could not find another alternative... Ever...Yet, you, sorry idiot, failed to see it, because you're nothing else but pitiful Homocanadicus... My recommendation would be that you better travel to St. Michel and show me what you can do with this place, otherwise you sound like president Bush or that newly introduced moron Dion, LOL
1. Sky is out of focus and the sky's grain dont seem to match the Abbey and foreground
2. Sky reflection in water dont match the sky's colors
3. The hard edges around the Abbey shows that it was isolated from another picture
4. The grass, rocks and the Abbey dont have a ambient that match the sky's colors
5. There is a lot of weird blur between the shore,grass and the bottom of the Abbey
6. This image as no exif
7. I'm 99.9% sure it's a crappy fake montage made by a human being
indeed most of the WONDERFUL CAPTUREs I have ever seen !!! STUNNING WORK :o) V~!
I had to read down the list to see if I'd already commented on this image. It is a great one!
I have only one question...how did you do it?
Perfect exposition, composition, reading time, colour restriction, on every corner you see it, it's perfect.
Love it Eldar... and the music. I can hears Piaf singing now! Beautiful shot! V
eternal image..!! V
Stunning...absolutely wonderul. Voted
this is the best of the abbey I ever seen :)
Magnificent capture, V
Great shot and work ! -v-
Hello Eldar. I hate to disagree with you but this is the finest photo ever taken of St. Michel by both human beings AND non-human beings (Aliens, Spirits, Poltergeists, etc.):) Sorry for your error:) Michael.
Then show it to us, uneducated people, LOL, so we all can celebrate the glory of Robert's artwork :-)
The best image of St.Michel ever taken by a human being was the one of Robert Capa during WW II.
Superbe, c'est le mot!
This is excellent and yes this is the best Isaw of St. Michel....it looks almost a fairy tale...respect!!!
Excellent shot!!! v!
great shot, excellent work.
What beauty, this is like a picture of Heaven. Vote
Very good picture and postprocess. Like it much.
Strong and effective photograph of the classical view without crowds of fussy tourists on the foreground!
hehe just HAD to come back again and tell you just how much I love this picture x
WOW ... what a magnificent photo ... BIG vote
9.772 clicks and only handful of comments... I wish my St.Michel had tits, LOL
Oliver, then you need to teach us what's really working on own examples... from film director prospective , of course !
From a film director perspective, I see a strong mixture between the sharpness of digital and the beauty and glamor of film. Not sure if it works though
It is just a lots of work with different layers.

Indeed, it's a really great photo Eldar. Bravo. V.
Pha makes possible. Best regards
Michael, I am flattered by the comment, but... we all know this is the best image of this place ever taken by human being.... how about the rest of gallery, does it meet your approval or not at all, LOL ???!!!
Hello Eldar. Perhaps the greatest photo of the Abbey at St. Michel ever captured. The combination of angle, exposure and violently dramatic sky makes this famous come alive like never before. This is one amazing photo....and although you can not see it, I would bet they serve Borscht inside. Ciao. Michael,
Class shot,I was there in August beautiful place,you got a great sky 8-) V
ELdar It's defenitely 99% + 1 since I think the above statement is true Stunning inage! Vote
Lawrence, I guess I disturbed so many folks and ruined buncha stuff with this image that, likely, it should be taken off this gallery :-) !
Iain M Norman

Fine shot and gallery DD
Le Mont St Michel est cher à mon coeur... Très chaleureuse ambiance dans cette image :-)
