The Inlaws have a *TINY* loft on the west side of the Seine. The view of Paris is panoramic and charming. This was a the first day Paris after purchasing this camera at a Fry's in the Silicon Valley. I did not mess with the image, and I am sure it could be cleaned up with a proper software package. This was shot with the camera sitting on a flower pot on the roof (I reached through the window to depress the shutter).
