A panorama of the Seine as seen from Île Saint-Louis.
The Île Saint-Louis is one of two natural islands in the Seine river, in Paris, the other being Île de la Cité. The island is named after King Louis IX of France (Saint Louis).
The island is connected to the rest of Paris by bridges to both banks of the river and by the Pont Saint-Louis to the Île de la Cité. The island was formerly used for the grazing of market cattle and stocking wood.
One of France's first examples of urban planning, it was mapped and built from end to end during the 17th-century reigns of Henri IV and Louis XIII. A peaceful oasis of calm in the centre of Paris, the island has only narrow one-way streets, no métro stations and just two bus stops. Most of the island is residential, but there are a number of restaurants, shops, cafés and bars at street level. There is one large church, Saint-Louis-en-l'Île Church.

Nice panorama along the river with all those impressive buildings. Iconic Paris postcard, well taken.

The narrow streets and lack of metro stations, etc. sounds like it is a perfect place to explore and browse.
Your panorama gives a very calm appearance to this scene. I like how you have cleverly employed the trees in the r/h corner, unobtrusive and, yet, giving a thrust of movement along the river towards the bridge.
It is one scene where Paris appears peaceful, almost slow, so very different in mood to the Place de la Concorde!
Have a lovely day,

it`s not easy to balance a panoramic shot as well as you have here,the buildings on the left and the trees on the opposite side make ideal frames to a nicely exposed scene.
Clarity is first rate.
Best regards Les.

Un superbe panorama de la Seine avec quelques uns des plus beaux bâtiments qui la bordent. Les arbres sans feuilles permettent d'en voir encore plus. Une belle netteté même si tout semble bien loin.

Good morning Stephen,
A winter scenery is so different from summer time's, missing much the green foliage, and the color of the Seine is more reflecting the season's ambiance.
But anyway, this city offers great view over its architecture's grand designs, which you very well show here.
Cropped horizontally to have a nice concetrated view along.
have a nice Friday.

Have a great weekend MAlgo

I like the wide angled, panoramic format and the soft pastel colors. Good sharpness and subtle reflections in the river. The bridge and clocktower top left make good focal points. The trees at right add depth and frame the scene well. Bon weekend!

Missed this one,
What a super Pov,it looks like you were on a boat but I read about the Island Ile Saint-Louis, the one you posted a photo of the two shops.
It looks a calm and relaxed place.
Well managed, Tfs,
Sun trying to stay out off with my son to Blaxhall motocross, hope it stays dry.

That's a very charming city, no one can ever deny it!
And you took a very beautiful picture of it!
With the weather conditions at that moment and your photo job, we have a very romantic-looking photograph!
TFS - congrats,
