Congrats Janine. I thought this might be yours. No matter how many times you have seen this or for those who have not ever, it is a wonderful view. Great job on processing.

Hello from the critique club

An interesting image that meets the challenge fully

Regardless of the opinion of one of your commenters this still remains a classic image for good reason. Technically it is up to your normal high standards though I do agree with Neat, the greens, reds and bright yellow are very dominant in a near mono cityscape. Your title reflects the current heightened tensions of the continuing terrorist threat that France in particular is enduring. A very worthy score and result for a very worthy image, well done Janine.

Hmm I wonder who took this :)

Great vantage point Janine, and if you're not Janine, well done anyway, in my top picks!

The only thing I would have done differently, and mind you this is just my thoughts, I would have muted the greenery. The blue color is magical with the brown gargoyle sitting there overlooking the city. 10

I think this has been photographed at least a hundred thousand times in the last 10 years, surely there was something more interesting to photograph from above within 10 meters of there. I'm not being nasty but if you want to make a lasting good photo you have to think for yourself, go with the mistakes and find your own vision.

Kudos for climbing the spiral stair! Did not see that gargoyle for up close in 15 years. Well done

Gorgeous photo, composition is wonderful! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we'll be able to travel to Paris next fall :)
