Yes. I take photos and I like to travel... But in the past, I couldn't share them. Now, thanks to the web (and thank you Caedes), I can propose my pictures and can discover yours.
Happy New Year :-))

I just got back from Paris. I wanted to take a picture of the Notre Dame too, but they're restoring it right now, so my pictures are kinda spoiled by the scaffolding around the tower.
But yours came out beautiful, I love it

They were restoring the cathedral when I was there, nice to see it without the scaffolding.
I took a bateau-mouche, and I'd recommend that to anyone who visits. A tour down the Seine is something you can't leave Paris without doing.

Very Crisp.
I wonder what it would look like if you used a longer exposure to blur the water. That might add a timeless feel and contrast the lighting. Just a suggestion to an already seemingly pro shot. Very Nice!

A wonderful capture Pierre, of arguably, Europe's most romantic and beautiful city and I agree that you always think of Quasimodo as you walk towards Notre-Dame. The illumination along the embankment of the Seine, reflected by the water, and the great lighting of the majestic Cathedral are superbly caught in this image which brings back happy memories for me!

This is a very good night capture.
I like the "magnificence" (glowing) of the Notre Dame.
I visited Paris this year, 2005, in the summer and realy enjoyed the beautiful French city.
I did not manage to capture such a good night shot however...

I like the tipical yellow light of the night shot in contrast with the white lamp on the Dame. I don't think for this shot you have used the Minolta Dimage A1, and what penalize on this picture is the noise black night.My 7/10

Pierre - I am impressed with the crisp detail in this limited light photo. Was it film or digital? Either way, it is very difficult to achieve crisp subject and compressed lighting in a low light enviroement. Excellent photo. Do more please. P.S. by the way I was born in Geink, are you anywhere close to there?
