The chimeras of Notre Dame have been witnesses of the evolution of Paris for several centuries, and will continue to observe these changes for a long time more.

Any picture of Paris will get my attention, I love this city....and of course, this classic view from the top of Notre Dame. Even one that has been seen many times, it's always impressive and timeless. This is one of the rare sites though, having both gargoyles in the same frame...it's almost always the one looking downward which is featured. A very good depth of field, nice and in focus on all accounts. Have a great day ahead.

I know the scene of the gargoyle and the tower are common, but this is a completely new vision, and you have done this so well by including the second chimera in the closer foreground. This one change has created a brand new image and actually adds a nice element of extra depth to the scene. Really cool, thanks
All the best

I was few times inside the Cathedral of Notre Dame however I have never visited the tower. Anyway... good to have a reason to back to Paris again!:)
Like your shot a lot. Great management of sharpness and DOF created a very interesting view on this beautiful city. Well done!

interesting sculptures on the top. Like it. Good depth and sharpness. A nice one but photo may be more beautiful in monochrome, IMHO. Tfs.

anche se la giornata non era delle più belle ed il cielo era grigio, questa, a mio parere, è la più bella delle tue ultime foto per la particolare bellezza ed originalità della composizione che contrappone il paesaggio cittadino con relativa Torre Eiffel, alle sculture bizzarre che dominano la cattedrale di Notre Dame, molto ben riprese ed inserite nella fotografia.
D'altronde, il cielo nuvoloso,ha impedito ad un bel cielo azzurro di sovrastare la città, nello stesso tempo ti ha dato una bella luce diffusa ideale per riprendere le due sculture ormamentali.
Buona la nitidezza e il dosaggio del colore e del contrasto.
Ciao e buona domenica
