We had over 70 entries to our photography competition and the standard, as you will see, has been very high. But now it’s decision time! We’ve deliberated to reduce this number to a final 10 and the winner will be announced soon. But for now, why not tell us which is your favourite in the comments? Merci!   Justin Postlethwaite Editor, FrenchEntrée

    Mike Rhodes – Château Malbrey. The symmetrical balance, the solid colours and the clean composition create a powerful feeling of wight and stability. Thank you for sharing your sensibility.

    No trip to France is complete without a visit to the Louvre and I love the lighting and shadows, and how people are moving quickly – just like on the streets of Paris. The Louvre is where old meets new in art and architecture – as reflected in Lorraine’s photo.
