Would of been better I think if there was a little more detail in the buildings in the center. Although can be seen, it is more of a blob than a beautiful morning in the Paris. (5)

A great quiet scene, well fitting the title. It shows a different side of the city, and is very well done. Perhaps a bit tighter of a zoom on an area would have made it more intense, but still very well done. 9

Great shot! I really like the color tone and in this case the centered composition.

Yes and I can feel that unmistakeable morning light. Coffee anyone?

Pastel tones reflecting on the river seem fitting for a city known for art.

I feel like this is listing to the left, but the horizon looks straight.... hmmm. Great coloring though, definitely in line with the challenge too!

I'm not sure the Ile is that hidden even at this time of the morning! But this is a beautiful shot showing the serene, gentle and relaxed face of Paris!

There is a minor skew to this, the left is visibly lower than the right. I also think there is too much water showing, and the rest of the image is lost in it. A narrower crop in the horizontal direction may have worked better for that.

Great! My personal taste sees this as a much stronger image cropped more closely around the bridge and presented as a panorama! :)

Absolutely beautiful photo. It looks so serene and calm. I guess this quiet is hidden during the day.
