WOW, this really is a FABULOUS capture, Renee - it has such WONDERFUL ambiance...AND, the snow falling is an added bonus!! :o) No wonder you love Paris - it *IS* the renowned 'City of Love' after all, isn't it?!! ;o) Your composition is EXCELLENT, and your use of selective colouring is PERFECT!! A VERY well seen, taken, AND edited image, Renee!! :o) Hope you're having a GREAT week on the Gold Coast!! ;o)

Hi Renee
You have had so many comments for this wonderful image, that one more will not mean a lot, but I have to tell you that it really speaks to me and generates feelings. Very subjective, but commenting images, always will be subjective.

Regards

Poul
