Here is a summer picture for those who are frozen and sad in cold and dark short days of long winter.
A bit of sunshine won't do any harm, will it? :-)
I am sorry about the cropped bottom of the photo:( but I was much in a hurry while shooting it..
In the background - The Church of Saint-Germain-l'Auxerrois. Founded in the 7th century, the church was rebuilt many times over several centuries. It now has construction in Roman, Gothic and Renaissance styles.

Hello Elena ,
A beautiful view of Paris in august , when the city is only for the tourists . The composition is excellent . I like a lot the vivid colors and the fine sky . You've very well managed the difficult back light .

Hi Elena, A beautiful scenery of Paris. Excellent composition and POV despite cropping bottom of the photo. You have managed the light so well that everything in the frame is in such details even though under strong sunlight. The vivid colour of the sky enhances the beauty of the composition. Thank very much and Happy New Year

la foto è molto gradevole sia per la composizione che per i colori, tanto più che la presenza dei turisti anzichè disturbare appare come una nota piacevole che arricchisce la foto.
Molto buona anche la nitidezza.
Grandioso il soggetto.
Ciao e buona domenica

This is a really fine photo. You have combined interesting buildings with an interesting crowd very nicely. And what a relief that you didn't show us the real Eiffel tower. Too many did that before you. The light and colours tell us clearly of a lovely warm day in summer.

A very pleasant summer picture from Paris, with a good mix of tourists and street vendor. Interesting buildings and note. This is indeed a city with a lot to offer! We were here in October but we missed this particular place.

Great to post a capture from Paris about the Towewr and without it
Nice place, where all , buildings and square share the same golden color
Color and life given by the turists,( the girl seems interested in the towers)
Nice scene and contrast given by the parisian sky
Wish you also a 2014 plenty of sun and good photos
A question, have you visited D Orsay Museum?

lovely summer photo from Paris. I remember this church it has a beautiful architecture. You had a difficult back light but you did a great job here. Presence of people adds a nice touch and you have a fantastic sky as a decoration.
Very well done!
