    The first photo has a bit unnatural yellow tint, but otherwise a nice set.
  13. Château de la Favorite , also called "Château du Prince Charles", was built in 1734 according to the plans of the architect Germain Boffrand and under the direction of Jean Marchal. It was owned by Charles Alexander. After his death in 1780, Emperor Joseph II inherited the castle, which offers it for sale. Until the 1990s the castle was still in good condition. After another sale, the castle was gutted. The roof was secured and windows were walled in the 21st century. A few years ago, it was still accessible through a window, unfortunately no longer today. 1 2 3 4 5

  15. Italy Powerstation P - April 16

    Even it's stripped, but some really nice shots. Well done!
  16. Thanks! For this photo I've set the flashlight on a small cone of light. Then I moved it in a circle while I went through the tunnel. The result is rarely so uniform, but here it's quite well succeeded.
  17. The fortress with a lot of murals in its bunkers is part of the second fortified belt of forts of Metz and had its baptism of fire in late 1944, when the Battle of Metz occurred. The Fortification was part of a wider program of fortifications called "Moselstellung", encompassing fortresses scattered between Thionville and Metz in the valley Moselle. The aim of Germany was to protect against a French attack to take back Alsace-Lorraine and Moselle from the German Empire. The fortification system was designed to accommodate the growing advances in artillery since the end of XIXth century. Based on new defensive concepts, such as dispersal and concealment, the fortified group was to be, in case of attack, an impassable barrier for French forces. Covering an area of 83 ha, the Fortress is constructed from 1907 to 1914. The group fortification has 2 fortified barracks and can accommodate a total of 560 men. It has 8 pieces of artillery, 6 of them 100mm and 2 of them 77mm. It has eight domes and twenty observation points and lookouts. The various items are connected by 1,700m of underground galleries. In its water tanks, it has 2,640 m3 of water. The energy required for its operation is ensured by seven diesel engines of 27 hp each. During The Annexation of Alsace-Lorraine, the fort receives a garrison of gunners belonging to the XVIth Army Corps. From 1914-1918, it served as a relay for the German soldiers at the front post. Its equipment and weapons are then at the forefront of military technology. In 1919, the fort was occupied by the French army. After the departure of French troops in June 1940, the German army reinvests the fort. In early September 1944, at the beginning of the Battle of Metz, the German command integrates the fort into the defensive system set up around Metz. In Second World War, on September 2, 1944, Metz is declared fortress Reich by Hitler. The fortress must be defended to the last by German troops.

  18. Germany The clowns dancing

    Interesting place, captured very well.
  19. Impressing building with beautiful decay, the dome is fascinating. I also really like the stairs with the green wall, the light and the colors there are very nice.
  20. The dome and the curved bottom are fantastic, I also like the piano.
  21. Very well captured. My favorite is the photo with the dried plant in the middle of the room.
  22. Italy Manicomio Di Quarto - April 16

    Fascinating place. And I really like how you edit your photos.
  23. Always nice to see. Just sad that some things have been destroyed by vandalism in recent years. I prefer the normal photos than those with fisheye.
  24. What a magnificent estate. Fantastic!
