PARIS, the most beautiful city on earth?

Inspired by this thread by one of our fellow forumers I decided to share some of my photos from Paris which I took in March 2007 (damn, the time is passing soooo quickly!). I'm planning a weekend trip to Paris some time soon. Can't wait to visit this amazing city once again. The beauty of Paris simply takes over me

Wonderful! I liked the format of the picture, looks like a frame from a movie scene.

Are you photographer?

It's beautiful, but not the most. I don't like titles like this. There are only a few cities that you can say that are one of the most beautiful, but never the most. It's my opinion.

These photos looks incredibly beautiful... When I looked at them I felt for some seconds even more charming feeling than my actual experience in the city! You have done almost impossible - captured the real sense of place's beauty in the photo! I think that's one of the greatest achievements of a photographer!

It is the most beautiful of the large cities on this planet -- in terms of architectural and civic beauty of course (not natural). Name another global world city more beautiful than paris? I can't think of any.... Istanbul, Moscow? Nope. Asian cities...nope again.

your city is very nice also, but it lacks the depth and excitement of paris i'm afraid --- too many banal buildings in the centre city. although the beaches and hills help make up for it.

I agree, Paris is the most beautiful LARGE city but theres definitely nicer smaller ones. But compared with London, Berlin Madrid, Syndey, NYC, Tokyo etc, its the best of them.

Thanks all for your kind comments.

About he "most beautiful"... it was my intention to put this cliche in because Paris is often referred to as "the" most beautiful city. Of course there can't be "the most" beautiful because it's purely a subjective matter. It seems to be one of the most beautiful cities or in the category of "the most beautiful" cities in the world... for most people anyway.

I think its tied with NYC in terms of beauty. Manhattan is stunning!

I think that Paris, as a CITY (streets, buildings, map, etc), is gorgeous and certainly one of the most beautiful cities on Earth, but the lack of the sea will always be there.

The sea is THE thing that makes a city perfect. Ofcourse the sea itself it is not everything. A ugly seaside city, is ugly. But it's impossible to a beautiful interior city to be more interesting than a beautiful seaside city.

My opinion ofcourse. Some people don't give a damn shit for the "ocean aura", others, like me, do.




More: I think that Tokyo, Paris, London and NYC are overrated because their global city status. There are other FANTASTIC cities, completely tied with the first four. Not only in beauty, but in vibrance, in city feeling, etc. Some cities are even better, i think, because they ally that vibrance, city feeling and diversity, to the sun, the sea, the local culture, the beauty.

I think Barcelona kicks everyones ass
