    The Monet shots are achingly gorgeous – I can’t get over the purple wisteria and the weeping willows. Monet’s Rowboat just might be my favorite shot of yours ever! Chapel on the hill is another instant classic. I love seeing how he saw each town and environment and how you saw each town and environment. Amazing to follow his path through your eyes. A truly spectacular compilation – very, very well done.

    Wonderful idea and job well done in matching up Monet’s paintings with the actual scenes that inspired him! Each photo is a lovely work of art. Each painting brought out Monet’s”impression” of loveliness that your lens captured.

    Wonderful addition of Monet’s paintings. Allows the viewer to see the same or similar scenes through the eyes of two different artists. Most interesting!

    The more I look at your photos, the more jealous I become! But in all honesty, you’ve taken some beautiful shots. This pond at Giverny is one of my favorites- you’ve captured the natural beauty of the location, the colors, the serenity- all of it with that classic Ellen eye. And that reflection!

    Some of my other favorites would be: “Mustard Field” for its moody sky and gorgeous color, “Through the Bridge” for its abstraction, and “White Clouds Over le Havre Port” for that fantastic composition. Great images!

    This shot is simply exquisite! You’ve captured the serenity of the lily pond with its perfect reflections. And of course the sweet colors of the flowers in the background draw the soul as well as the eye back into the mist.

    These are lovely photos, shot with an eye for small details. Giverny is on our must see list. We drove by it one year, but it was a week before it opened.

    I love the juxtaposition of your photos with Monet’s paintings!

    It looks like you had a wonderful time. Don’t know which I liked more – the landscapes or the food that made me hungry.
