In most cities, a river running through a city tends to divides it in two parts. However, in Paris, the river Seine joins the left, and the right bank together ever so naturally. The photo was taken at the end of the day. All the reflecting lights appeared to me like some kind of precious jewels. If you look carefully, there is a man with a dog on the left bank. He is alone, and I was alone. The time passed very quickly, the blue sky shaded in fragile blue was disappearing before my eyes.

Under difficult lighting conditions, you've produced a very good photograph. The man and his dog make a subtle focal point. I am glad I was on line (just for a few minutes) when the photo logged in. For a scanned slide this is excellent quality.

Hi Nobuaki. Although the image is somewhat blurry, it does have a dreamlike quality (maybe because of the lack of sharpness). Your statement about the sky disappearing before your eyes applies to the image which is ephemeral. At the same time, the water in particular reminds me of Impressionism. Unusual work. Regards. Klaudio.

I completely agree with the Professor! It was the hour of the evening, very difficult to manage especially with the film.
But you got the result and it's very nice with warm colours and smooth reflections on the water.
The walking man I see it very nostalgic, almost a scene for a movie ...
Have a nice day!

It seems almost like a watercolour. A very romantic take of the famous Seine. The cold weather is palpable and again, I hope you did not freez. Exceelent the sillhouette of the man and dog walking along the foreshore and the symmetry of the trees and Ponte are a beautiful addition. Nice work nad I hope your pasta with pesto was a success. My father is from the South, so we do not often eat green pesto with our pasta, sometimes red pesto. When I was in Sicily I found a beautiful pesto made of pistacchio nuts that is delicious. I think you can buy it on the web at www.etnamiele.it (the pesto and ricotta recipe is scrumptious)
