Taken on the Paris trip last year. I loved the pic and I wanted to make more of it but wasn't inspired at the time. Hope you like.

I know that some would prefer to see the verticals straightened, but I like the fact that they converge as for me they reinforce the spectacle of this place and the fact that it dominates the hill.

I love the angle you have taken this from, don't straighten the verticals, I to have taken plenty of this building on my last 2 trips, but would not have thought of this, fantastic shot.

Straighten nothing and in any case there's never been any advantage in going straight if you see what I mean...

Thanks so much everyone! Glad this works. Thanks for taking the time to do a mod Sarah - interesting variation.

Also glad my thoughts on the converging verticals resonate with others 8-]

LOL David - yeah the long way round is usually the best 8-]

A soot and whitewash mono, just like the days gone by. Super contrast Suzie, the icing on the cake for me is the Gargoyle shadow. Ron.

Oooh look! A special hat for me to wear 8-] thanks Brian hehe

Glad the contrast works. I don't have my monitor calibrated and I'm always in dread of what I think is a dark contrast showing up as a muddy mess, even though I check the colour values ;-]

I'm surprised there have been no comments. For me, it's the curly railing tops that stand out especially.
