Hi treklensers
A few generations ago, Québec was kind of champion for having large families and this house must had dwelled many children. The place has gone through serious restauration but it is still a big house. In its dark red tone, it can be seen from the distance and add a lovely touch of color in the white landscape. The photo was taken in Champlain Qc. on a country road known as "rang Picardie". The second floor windows seem to be out of focus. I made a workshop to show that it is a kind of illusion created by the storm windows.

Il y a quelques générations, Québec était un peu la championne des familles nombreuses et cette maison a sans doute abrité de nombreux enfants. L'habitation a subi des rénovations récemment mais ça demeure une grande maison. Ainsi peinte, elle est bien visible dans notre blanc décor. Cette photo fut prise à Champlain Qc. sur le rang Picardie.Les fenêtres de l'étage sembles hors foyer. J'ai fait un workshop pour montrer que l'effet est sans doute dû aux doubles fenêtres ajoutées pour l'hiver. Les traits obliques crés par le revêtement me semble au foyer, les fenêtres devraient normalement l'être.Voir mon workshop.


Aucun post traitement si ce n,est la préparation pour TL

What a super find in this lovely home. Stunning colour and perfect composition, as always. I always love the inclusion of the fence and barn boards. Great detail, you can even see they still have the old double storm windows.Lovely. Bravo mon cher ami.
Warmest regards

Hi Serge,
Excellent view although I mis a tad sharpness, particular at the house it self (check the windows of the second floor)Anyway the nice colour contrast makes it an very attracive picter, well composed and presented!

Coming from a background like we see here Serge..I have a weak spot anyhow for excellent photo's like this
(GrandFather had a farm in Holland, raising-brething cattle..Fresians)
Excellent shot.
Bravo John
see email svp

I think the weather vain on the house tell's the story of this farm. It makes one think of all the generations that lived here, a warm and safe place to live. You hace captured it well my friend.

Hello Serge,
