This picture of Notre Dame Cathedral is the closest one among my shots from that bus tour from Eastern to Western Europe to its theme. The tourist agency, which organized it, titled it as "Paris, Love and Pigeons". But because my wife could not participate over her business, for me the tour had the contracted name “Paris and Pigeons”.
There, in the Parvis Notre-Dame - place Jean-Paul-II, there are also stones indicating the Kilometre Zero of the French highways.

A splendid bright and sharp presentation of the Notre Dame.
You've captured that flying dove at the right at the exact moment and at the right place. A small but beautiful contribution to your tour 'Paris and pigeons'.
Best regards, Paul

at much closer inspection, I can see people way up at the very top! I wonder what the view is like up there!?
You have a perfect sky backdrop with the white and blue clouds/sky, its a nice complimentary color and texture.
of course the architecture is beautiful.
too bad your wife wasn't there.

a very beautiful classical view of this famous church.I liekd the soft light and the sharpness you got here, the pigeon is perfect at right..

Very good quality shot ! The sharpness is excellent and I am very impressed there is no distorsion at all alhtough you were probably quite close to the cathedral.
Have a nice week,

C'est un très bel angle pour mettre en valeur cette majestueuse cathédrale. Le pigeon en vol, à droite, est capturé au bon moment, les ailes parfaitement déployéesm juste avant de sortir de la composition. Cela ajoute à l'attrait de la photo.

Poor guy, to go for such a trip and then to have kilometr zero instead of Love in Paris!! Not so much pigeons too. Beautiful shot with excellent sharpness. we can spot people on the tower. marvelous composition and quite romantic anyway.
adramad (33546) 2013-02-04 12:51
Fabulous composition of this wonderful cathedral, I enjoy it when the visit, with many photos.
I love the beautiful color and brightness of the image clean, that dove in flight, gives a nice touch to the image, the presence of all these people gives a cheerful touch vital.
Great job very well done.
Have a nice day.
saxo042 (35780) 2013-02-04 14:26
A very sharp and well taken picture. You could probably sell this photo to the Paris tourist board, this is a very suitable picture postcard. A perfect POV and a very pleasant view!
jlbrthnn (79791) 2013-02-04 15:26
The framing is remarkable and pleasant with people and ... pigeons, especially one which is in flight. It is interesting to see people on the terraces of Notre Dame. The light, colors, sharpness are excellent. Bravo.

I am sorry that your wife could not see Paris this time. I remember I visited Paris first time on my own as well. I knew I have to take my future wife there and I managed to do it many years later.
It is indeed a place for romantic walks. However the advantage was that you had more time to focus on taking photos :) This is a beautiful presentation of the cathedral. I took simila photos but I did not have such a great weather over there.
Excellent postcard like view, exactly as I like it!

PARIS - My very first overseas trip - even if it was just across the English Channel - I stayed not far from this Magnificent Cathedral & on limited money I had so much fun... I love this photo & the perfect capture of a pigeon on the right side.
Full of interest well done on every aspect.
shevchenko (18989) 2013-02-08 1:08

Great architecture and beautiful shot.Very well done.TFS.
ourania (22684) 2013-02-19 7:23
this is a wonderful photo, a rewarding postcard with human interest too. Your composition is great, depth and clarity are excellent and we have the chance to enjoy all the details of the architecture in a most pleasing light. The colours have a delightful luminosity and the movement of people and pigeon adds vividness. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

надеюсь, вы там тоже потоптались? )) Я был здесь в 1999. Еще не было цифровиков, зато не так был пресыщен поездками и все по детски наивно воспринимал. Помпезная архитектура, чего уж там. Отличное фото!
В Скандинавию летом - это хорошо, а вот автобусный тур... там за неделю все не обойдешь, а тут по 3 часа на город если выделят. Или я слишком заелся )))
