    Probably a photo that most visitors to Paris have taken. i just love the look of this ugly fella! As he isn't a water spout, then he isn't a gargoyle, i understand this type of stonework is a chimere and that this individual represents a vampire

    not sure about the contrast as it has already been adjusted, any further & it starts to look a bit odd. the light was quite flat on this day, dull & overcast, so I don't know if adjusting contrast would help any more than it has done.

    Nice one!
    Did you notice that someone scratched a tatoo into the gargoyles arm? what a shame...
    Did you get up on the tower of Notre dame to take this one?
    I've been to Paris many times but never actually went up there...
    I guess Im a bad tourist ;-)

    I didn't notice the graffiti, but easily rectified in Elements if I wanted/needed to.

    Yeah, I went up to the towers, worth the wait just for the stonework!
