Stunning pictures of Paris!

My first trip to Paris city was in last year. Of course, 4 days for such a city is way too less, and I definitely plan to return there sometime - when I will be able to afford it. Here are some of my pics from Paris in August 2008, if you want to see more, go to www.urbancentre.net and find Paris gallery in photo collection.

Great shots!
Is the tower really that blue during the night? It looks a lot better with "golden" lighting IMO.

It was while France was leading EU. Maybe in this picture it is a bit too overexposed because I wanted to show how the light reflects in the sky, but in Paris gallery in www.urbancentre.net there is also shorter exposure version - I think the blue lighting was wonderful!

Really stunning
I was in Paris only once for two days and that was two years ago (March 2007... it was still very cold). I'm thinking of getting there soon just for a weekend trip. It's truly an amazing city.

There are many more beautiful cities in the world, for example, Stockholm, Madrid, Barcelona...

I wouldn't say London is exceptional when it comes to beauty apart from few great historic landmarks (Parliament, St.Paul's Cathedral, Tower, Tower Bridge...). Paris, Barcelona, Prague, Budapest etc. are all much more more beautiful in a visual sense. London is famous and great for many other things than beauty.

I think I have to disagree with you a little pansori. I agree that London isn't the most beautiful city in Europe, but there is a lot more beauty in London than just the historic landmarks.. There're tons of beautiful buildings and if we compare to for example Budapest the buildings are also renovated..

Oh no, by no means I'm saying that London is not beautiful. I'm just saying that it's not in the same league with Paris, Barcelona, Prague and the likes when it comes to beauty. Take Budapest off the list if you want

Paris is indeed very beautiful, much more so than London. But I feel the most beautiful city in Europe s without a doubt Rome, the eternal city.

Having seen the shorter exposure version, I have to agree, it looks quite good in blue

Overall you got some amazing nightshots on your website

"Paris egdes out London for the title of world's most beautiful city!"

Paris is easier on the eyes but there is way too much of the same color in the architecture. London is more ecclectic. I just got back for a 3 day stint and I barely scratched the surface. I will post pics soon. Paris in the Spring is unbelievable.

The most beautiful city in the world might just be Stockholm.

Paris is an amazing city. I've been there for 2 times, would like to go back sometime, but I don't think it's the nicest city in Europe. There are so many unknown cities in Europe that are much nicer. But Paris is massive, big, and nice!
