    When I was in Grade 12, I went on a March break tour of France. Naturally the camera came with me. All I had on me for the trip to my chagrin was a roll of B/W film. I am usually a fan of colour shots, but I think these worked out. Feedback would be much appreciated.

    Pas mal. :)

    I rather think the roll of B&W brought you good result. It's quite easy to blow out photo details in strong sunlight with digital conversions.

    One small suggestion: you may rotate #5 counterclockwise a little. This can be done rather easily in PS or GIMP.

    I must have not aligned it properly on the scanner. Sometimes I don't really notice until someone points it out.

    Here's one I took with a disposable camera. I don't think it turned out too bad.

    Hello, where is this beautifull country ????? :mrgreen:

    I have to say your first B&W ( Notre Dame) is grey, not very nice to me;)

    Other ones are much more better.
    The grain on eiffel tower give a kind of old style of begining of past century ;)

    You did a fine job with such "large" subjects.

    I've had bad luck with photo editing, but I'm willing to try it.

    The focus and lighting on number two is really great! Definitely my favorite.
