[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Most people consider the Pont Alexandre III the most beautiful bridge in Paris. And so do I. Shot from one of those tourist ships traveling the Seine. Weather was strongly overcast so I went for a dramatic b&w version.

Very dramatic atmosphere of the picture. Black and white is a perfect choice. Although it is cloudy pegasus is still shining ;)

Hi Jan
great..seems it can really fly..

HI Jan,
Superb shot,the shy is fantastic and your composition very good, but It should be interesting to see the color version, even if I am addicted to B & W I realy think the original shot should have been better.
TFS Steph.

The effect you went for worked very well Jan. What a great shot! Almost looks like the God's are angry! TFS...


An extraordinary drama on 'grandeurs' scale.
Somehow resembles the early posters upon some Wagnerian' operas. Incredible array of shades of grey from lowest pitch dark to diffused whites.
Captivating. Very imperialistic. Love it.

jolie photo aux contrastes très marquant.

I love the 'dramatic' light, beautiful tones, thanx, M, (*_*)
