I just love this one Greg. It would be so gorgeous done up as poster size and framed. The strong, saturated foreground in contrast with the less saturated background really establishes great depth. :):)

And hey... is that Ali G there in the yellow top admiring the buildings? ;)

very nice painting of this famous spot... love the luminous colors and light in this one...for a very controlled work it does retain the freshness and lightness of the scene

Looks like Paris to me that I spent my time. Excellent. I really get a flavor of this place.
