- Sets in this site are a hundred percent exclusive.
- Very nice 'backstage' page with good discussions - good read.
- 63 totally hot, European models already online.
- Carefully hand selected photos in each set (results in rather low pic count per set).
- Three sizes offered for the photos (small, medium and large).
- Zip files.
- Photographer has nice selections for his background (really sets the mood right).
- Fine Arts page displays Carre's better works (not included in content count).
- Photo sets are updated everyday.
- Already a ton of photo sets available.
- If you're not a fan of black and white / sephia photos, this site ain't for you.
- Though there are a few hardcore sets this is not an optimal choice for fans of penetration.
- Gallery Carre is a prime choice when it comes to black and white nudity. I used to write b&w photography but since our last review they also added movies which, though not very long or HD, also feature b&w nudity which I believe is a nice addition. So if you appreciate the camera skills and models chosen by French photographer Didier Carre I am sure you will not regret having spent the 20 bucks over here.
Details: Updates photo sets everyday.

Photography is all about light and shadows, is what they say. That is surely manifested in Didier Carre's work, which features beautiful nude photographs in black and white, gold tone and sepia treatments. You can view Carre's masterful work inside of Gallery Carre.
Carre's nudes are not only a result of talent but of skill as well. It seems that Carre himself develops his photos and gives them that treatment in order to show their best quality, using either the cool black and white effect, or the warmer, gold/pink tones in his photographs. In any case, they may not look too different in thumbnails but there can be a world of difference if you actually see them face to face in print - big.
The way i would describe Carre's photography... I guess the description 'well thought of' would be most appropriate. His pictures are clearly not just lucky snaps, but cleverly designed and well-engineered images basing from the sharpness of the image, the definitive lines, the meticulous lighting. A favorite theme of his is showing definition and softness at the same time, so the female body is a natural subject for his art.
Gallery Carre updates with a gallery everyday, the contents of which varies. Sometimes, there are as much as 15 photos inside, other times there is only one photo but showing it in three treatments. Approximately, there 15000+ images inside the site. The largest resolution is at 1300x2000 (viewing options are Small, Medium, and Large), and there are two versions of ZIPs (Low and High) as well. There are no videos available - this is pure photography.
The site design is real nice, very dramatic. You'll also find some nice photos and commentary with regards to the process of making the photos every week, care of the photographer. Together with that, you'll also find a model index, e-cards that you can send to friends, and a page with all the information you need if you would want to own a print copy of Carre's works.
Although the lack of videos isn't really that much of a gripe (since it is primarily a photos site), I would have to say that some of the prices for the print outs are really very high. Good thing the price of the site really isn't that high compared to others of the same network. Be warned too that there however is no hardcore action here (some may be expecting that... Gallery Carre is soft core".
For a mere $20~ ($19.95), you get access to this nice nude photos site in sophisticated black and white photos. If you're into soft core and glamour pics, then by all means, enjoy the beautiful site and the beautiful, sensual models. You will not having spent this money... I am very sure.
