    Hi,

    I used:

    Please take a look at here.

    I wonder if it's natural.

    I think this one is natural:

    Please take a look here.

    Am I right?

    "At here" is unusual, Silver. I've heard it before, but I doubt that it is worth copying or preserving.

    "Here" should be enough.

    I would understand that I needed to take a look at something, presumably something being pointed to with a hand gesture, but I would dismiss it as a poor choice of words, as though the speaker had confused "look here" and "take a look at this".

    I agree with both of the above posts, Silver.
