Taken from the last floor of the Centre Pompidou on a Sunday afternoon.

They were walking two by two ... with the company of their shadows.

Another bird's view on people... Seems like Centre Pompidou inspires you a lot, especially for photos looking down at the floor.
Them and their shadows, all two by two. Looks great! All going in different directions. Two are only about to meet, like something new awaits them.
Ah, well noticed again! Your style :)

I LOVE IT!!! this is def my kind of shot! fantastic work, excellent composition. Instant fav.

My type of shot! I love this unique point of view. A simple scene, but very strong. Well spotted.

Lovely image Sylvie, great POV, and a great geometry on the paving. You see the most interesting things.

Great catch, they lined up so well to provide the balance in your shot ;-)

Great idea Silvie! You've got the time of day exactly right for the shadows. Excellent!

Hey, thats innovative and really neatly done stuff. I like the way the shadoes seem to be following these people! The perspective and your positioning is perfect as it creates a dramatic impact here and gives us the feeling of hieght. Well composed.

Hola Sylvie, me gusta etse trabajo tuyo, has captado las sombras de una manera muy interesante, haces las fotos de vista de pajaro y me encanta.

And, sometimes, some shadows are separating one from another ...
Wonderful capture, POV and compo.

Very nice use of the point of view. The lines on the ground turn this almost into an abstract. Interestingly, you got so many couples at the same place. The only detached pair emphasise this. Even there, there is an air of expectancy of getting together.
A departure from your usual style. It also reminds me of a photo by Carma.

hi sylvie,

you can see that summer is coming in paris. two by two .. nicely positioned in the frame of the picture. just wondering how you could make the picture a bit more bright. allow me a workshop and I will post an alternative. reminds me to a famous picture of two man in a railway station ...
regards frans

Helo Sylvie.
I saw this picture in the morning time and I was thinking ... such a interesting composition captured and looks very effective with people on it. And it is!
Well done!

beautiful composition, the ground and these people. Very nice.

Hi Sylvie,
Very nice framing and spacing!! I also like the fact that only one lady in red. I imagine that it'd be so cool if the red on her coat has been increased!! Very attractive photo.

Nice, muted, soft shot.

human mosaic, ... simple but nice...
good luck
