I like the diagonal strokes of the branches, and the excellent color combination of sky blue - brick red. I hope the Lord will not be annoyed by the word "warhead window";).

@Illuci: Thanks for the comment, Erik. A for the "warhead", it's a litteral translation of the French expression "fenêtre en ogive" instead of the more usual "gothic arc".

I love how you can see through to the other window, a great shot. The window is such a beautiful shape too.

danthro from Suburbia, United States

beautiful color and reflection. it never occurred to me before that those are shaped like warheads. do you know if that was the intention, or are you just seeing that in it?

@danthro: According to the following Hélène's comment,
the english title has been changed to ogival shape window.

ogival: (Architecture) pointed, gothic.

Hélène Grenier from Canada

Merci tout le monde ♥
Pour le mot ogive, c'est un vieux mot issu du latin augiva, lui même peut-être provenant du mot oeuf ovum toujours en latin.
Fenêtre en ogive, fenêtre ogivale gothique, fenêtre gothique seraient donc des synonymes.
C'est bien après que le nom d'ogive fut donné à des missiles toujours à cause de leur forme.
Cependant, comme chaque langue à son histoire, il semble que l'anglais ai connu un autre parcours.

19 May 2008 2:04am

@Hélène Grenier: Merci pour les précisions sur le mot ogive.
J'ai probablement mal traduit ton titre en français
en me fiant trop à un logiciel de traduction.

fenêtre en ogive serait peut-être mieux traduit par ogival shape window.
La correction a été apportée.
