Or maybe I should give it the title "tenacity".

The painter had to have so much patience in painting this sky line of Clermont Ferrand. Unbelievable, isn't it? So many details !!

We passed this painting when sauntering through the streets of Clermont Ferrand.
No author was mentioned with it.


What do you think of making a photo of a painting? I was doubting about posting this one. I didn't make that painting, but am showing it.
Well, isn't it the same as posting the photo of a statue or building which you didn't built yourself ?

Just beautiful. I wonder how many months took the painter to finish it. Very realistic, but at the same time like a dream. It is not easy to take photos of paintings and you did it in a fantastic way. TFS


Very clean, crisp and detailed shot, Joop.
Prime lenses really do have that tack sharp advantage over zooms, and this particular shot emphasises that perfectly.

Great light with excellent exposure, and you've had my eye scanning this shot for a good few minutes now.

I like the painting very much.


wow like incepcion film :)
i like it !

This is a painting?! Marvelous work of art, so detailed that it could pass as real. I think this would take years to finished. Good lighting and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

I wonder if the artist used a photograph or his memory,to paint this cityscape,as you say so much details,I see the artist included some graffito on the roofs of a couple of buildings,so I assume this was painted some time ago?

I like how the small portion of a cathedral or church balances so well with the larger area of the cities buildings.



Olá Joop
I like this way of " catch" the cities...the lots of colors and lines make these views very interesting for me. good sharpness in tis " catch of..a great painting
um abraço

I couldn't believe this was a painting until I read your note. I thought maybe a photo with HDR, the detail is amazing. I understand what you say about posting an image of a painting but it is a pity you don't know the artist's name, it would have been interesting to know.

Hello Joop :)

The very interesting picture in terms of colour, well, that you showed him to us.
This innumerable quantity of roofs and windows looks impressively.
The very showy, beautiful work, I like him very much!

With best wishes.

hi Joop,
very nice point of view.

Best Regards,
Mehran Jahangiri.
