Photos for Festival de Romans


9/30/2006


11/26/2005

Soooo. The top five was: 1. Eiffel Tower in the mist, 2. Wandering outside Le Louvre 3. Fast love 4. First Snow! 5. Sacre Coeur, again!
But in fact, it's not 5 photos that I was supposed to send to the Festival but... 2. I just wanted to make it easier for you. I finally chose these 2 and did not include the Eiffel Tower in the mist simply because I thought it was a little bit too "classical". Not that I don't like it of course. Besides these are not the photos the jury will use to make its decision (they will judge the whole blog) but to print on posters and show around during the festival.
Last but not least, let me introduce you to the 3 members of the jury: Ernesto Timor (President of the Jury), photographer, Philippe Bréson, Director of the photo department at 20 Minutes and Matthieu Stefani, Web specialist and founder of Scoop live.

Linda Ball a dit…

Good choices! What fun.

Debs a dit…

Eric, those are my #1 and #3 favorites! Good luck--we have our fingers (and toes) crossed.

I guess the Eiffel Tower was too touristy, but it sure was gorgeous. I do like the others, tho. They were on my Top Five List, which I think came out closer to ten.

And, of course

Ces truffes puantes sont surfaites.

I think that means good luck. My French is not very good.

I love your choices - they both capture Paris in completely different ways. My fingers are crossed for you!

Wonderful, Eric. The first is thought provoking, the second is timeless and romantic. That'll definitely make it to the top!

Excellent Choices...two of my favorites as I indicated in the survey. Congratulations, Eric. I love them both but I lean toward the black and white.

Excellent Eric!! Et Bonne Chance, bien sur!! I think you chose two photos that really depict 21st century Paris...young love, 2006-07 style and a B&W that evokes une nostalgie por les temps perdu! Bresson, Doisneau, Ronis etc...! Sigh!!
