[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The port and city of Monte-Carlo captured from behind the casino building. This was a bright, sunny and hot summer day, perfect conditions for taking some photos. I experimented with the effect of tarnished colours, I wanted the effect of an old photo similar to sepia, but without black and white tones. I'm interested about your opinion on it.

Hi Kristof

A superb "b&w" image, with a good tonal range, superb contrast & excellent sharpness. It looks b&w in the thumbnail, but it is obviously desaturated color, upon opening. Tfs!

Hello Kristof! Amazing POV, wonderful perspective and excellent capture. Nice lightness. Good shot. Well done!

Hi Kristof,

Hello Kristof!

Beautiful panorama...wonderful shot!
Superb photo!

A stellar POV and perspective Kristof.
Amazing to see the city built beneath this giant mountain.
Maybe the saturation could be hotter, but the view is stunning.
I like your crop and presentation.
Well done.

Hi Kristof,

wonderful shot! Nicely composed, good perspective and great colours. Interesting view of the city; great use of 'washed out' colours here. It works really good on this image.

Have a nice afternoon,

hi Kristof

This is impressive stacking of the buildings all the way on the slope to the top and the view here is a nice scene of the compact cluster of buildings. I like the crowded boats in the marina. Good shot.

tfs, bill

hello Kristof;
the view is excellent that's why I would stay at natural colours because the buildings look similar...
you chose different and is also nice;
POV is the best;
regards (pozdrawiam) Karolina

Hey Kristof,
Your POV is perfect for a wonderful view of Monte-Carlo. I like everything from the boats and building to the mountains in the BG. The color is interesting and I think you achieved the look you were going for. Very nice shot.

Hi Kristof...

Very nice and original scene and really a very good shot!
Great natural lighting and beautiful color and contrast...
Well done,

This is a very pretty place, I was wondering why you de-saturated the picture. It would have been really pretty full color, but if you want sepia, or an old look to it, I would suggest you download the FREE program Photoscape In that program they have an "antique" tool and it's super. I will do a WS and show you!
