Chateau Frontenac
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Chateau Frontenac
Chateau Frontenac
Chatau Frontenac is a hotel in the Old Quarter and is the dominant building in the Quebec City Skyline. Built in 1893 in the medieval French style, the hotel is located in the heart of Upper Town overlooking the St. Lawrence River. It was the meeting place for Winston Churchill, Franklin Roosevelt, and leaders of other Allied countries during World War II. It's a must see when you go visit!!

Such an incredible foreboding sky.
The perspective, the exposure, the color, the detail are all perfect.
The resultant image is dramatic, beautiful and memorable.

Thank you so much, Kathleen! I'm delighted you approve!!

Steve...I thank you for taking time to post on my image today! Means alot!!Wishing you a great weekend!

Mike...I am most appreciative for your kindness. Thank you for the smile.

Hi Carolyn!! Villagers carrying torches?? Hah!! You would laugh if you saw the quality of tourists there...people from all over the world donning their sexiest and classiest attire....far from tribespeople! But it would sure add to this, wouldn't it?? Maybe I can hire a few street performers to do just that! ;>

Many thanks for taking time on this image commenting today, Charlene! Happy day!

Hello Claudia! Thanks so very much for taking time to post!! It was about time I got to the editing part of the shooting trip! I'm always lazy about that!

Greetings Marcie! THank you!! I had my shots from last year of this formidable beauty but am glad I waited to take another set. The sky just worked for me this year. Maybe next year, I'll capture more drama..who knows?? Thanks! Stay warm!

Joy...thank you once more for commenting.

Dear Robert...your comment is so well received and appreciated. Thank you so much! I consider your comment high praise. Have an enjoyable weekend!

Marie....I thank you for taking time to post on my work. Your sweet gift is always welcome!

Greetings Casey! Thank you so very much! I am honored that you have taken time out of your day to post!

Rob...Thank you for the kindness of your compliment today. I hope your weekend is a good one!

Thank you, Miss Judy.... as always a huge hug for your kind post on my image today...and thank you for your phone call.

Hi Darren!! Thank you!! You helped make this post much more special! I so appreciate your comment.

Dearest bill...Thank you for taking the time to give so generously and kindly today. Your comments are always such a gift....not just to me but to everyone else as well. No one sees the beauty in an image like you do.

Greetings Murry! Thanks so much! It was high time I took to looking over those images and doing some editing. Doesn't do me any good to keep them hidden, does it? Enjoy your weekend, good friend!

A note of thanks to you also, Karen!! I appreciate it immensely!~

Greetings to you, Dan! And a huge note of appreciation and thanks for your praise of my image. I appreciate it more than you know! Have a great weekend!
