Weekend Reflections: André Le Nôtre

Two days left to go see the fabulous André Le Nôtre in perspectives exhibition at the palace. This is a bust of the genius gardener by Antoine Coysevox, reflected in a framed print for Weekend Reflections.

Il reste deux jours pour aller voir l'extraordinaire exposition André Le Nôtre en perspectives au château, il faut vous hâter ! Voici le buste de cet homme génial par Antoine Coysevox, reflété dans un cadre pour les Reflets du Weekend.

Very nice reflections! I like the play of light and shadow, it has a semi-abstract quality:)

Very artsy, Ciel! I like that soft, eerie quality. I'd also love to see the exhibition, but...

Very nicely done. I have had some similar images with bright light on the statue and dark outside. I am trying to remember the conditions that led to that result.

Ah ces perruques versaillaises du 17ème siècle, quel grand tralala... Un très beau buste de Lenôtre, parfaitement mis en lumière et valorisé par ton angle de prise de vue... J'aime beaucoup !
