Bonjour Nikos,
Il existe sur TE une catégorie qui s'appelle instant décisif ; je pense qu'il serait utile de la retrouver sur TN !!!
En fait ta publication est tout simplement merveilleuse et n'a besoin d'aucun artifice pour guider le regard et apprécier, entre autres, la finesse des détails et la délicatesse des couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
