Judge’s Feedback:

"This is an extremely well executed photo. The majestic shades of purple and blue add to the mystery of the Alps. The narrow roads going around the mountains would make anyone want to take their first road trip to France!" - Lilia

Other entries that won us over:

Photographer: Johanna King

Location: La Clusaz, France

Taking photographs of the Mont Blanc.jpg

 

"Mont Blanc is the highest mountain in Europe and the most iconic. It is France’s own treasure and looking at it from a tourist's perspective is well thought of. The bright colours of the sunny French weather highlight the rich landscapes of the country: from the sea to the mountains, to the endless greenery. The angle of this photo gives a cinematic dimension to the shot." - Lilia

"The subject in the photo can truly be seen exploring his surroundings in France, while observing the enchanting beauty of the mountains with his family." - Rumaisa

Photo: Mediterranean walls in La Turbie 

Photographer: Csilla Tornallyay

Location: La Turbie, France

"There are only a few good things in life that can sum up Southern France: clear blue waters, colourful architecture, good wine and summer dresses! This image reflects the vibe of Mediterranean cities and shows a great colour palette." - Lilia

Could I submit old Photos? I had visited France about 11 years ago and had taken many Digital Photos of 5 MP size.
