    Warning: many touristy photos ahead - mostly snaps (it was a family trip) but some of them are still beautiful so decided to post.

    We spent 2 weeks there, 1st week drove through area north and north-west of Paris, spent 2nd one in Paris.

    I was going to take 4 lenses (9-18, 40-150, 45/1.8 and 20/1.7) + OMD and FL-300R in a shoulder bag (good old Lowepro Nova 2AW), but ended up taking 5 - added 14-42 just because there was some extra space left :smile:

    For the last couple of trips I wrote blogs (after returning) - nice way to remember daily events with fewer pictures, since photo galleries are sometimes long and boring. If anyone interested - they are here: part 1, part 2

    Some great shots, I particularly liked the one of the figure walking across the vast empty square and the photos of Versailles, Notre Dame and the one with the Gargoyle for the foreground. :2thumbs:

    Thank you very much. The man is a monk walking in the sands near Mont St. Michel. When the tide is low the sand is exposed, it's under the sea when the tide is high.

    Thank you very much sir. I used SilverEfex, gotta love this plugin.
    Here's some more B&W, converted a couple of shots yesterday that didn't look good otherwise.

    This one was in Le Mans

    p1125471094-4.
    E-M5    ---    11mm    f/8.0    1/160s    ISO 200


    Louvre. The statue is almost colorless and the shot was cluttered by people's clothing

    p1125620998-4.
    E-M5    ---    150mm    f/7.1    1/400s    ISO 200



    Notre-Dame. The construction was spoiling the view, not as much in B&W

    p1125685140-4.

    I like this one because there can be at least two, separate images and both have enough depth, texture, and subject isolation to be very interesting.

    Thank you for sharing these images of a place that I one day hope to visit.
