    Johanne, this is a totally massive shot. I’ve only just come to realize the beauty of some of the architecture of Quebec since my daughter moved there this year, and I’m blown away. Somehow you’ve managed to get in so much variation in this shot, and your angle emphasizes it beautifully. Nice work!!

  • Thank you so much for your beautiful comment, I deeply appreciate it.
