Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0L IS
Location: Paris
Date: Nov 10, 2009

Date Uploaded: Nov 10, 2009

Some art museum in Paris, in the evening. It was near my hotel.

:-)

Opened in Lightroom, since I remembered to load the free trial of version 2.5; used a general preset, rotated slightly and cropped slightly, then "rendered in Lightroom" for further processing in CS3 - had to do that because CS3 can't open the file otherwise. In CS3, added a touch of curves and resized/sharpened. Oh how I wish we'd had the 800 pixels for this one!

Some how I missed this. I love the color of the sky. It is reflected so beautifully in the water. Simply wonderful!

Wow Deb - I've not seen this one before.

Great picture and juxtapositions between old and new, big and small, glass and stone with a wonderful symetry thrown in as well.

Really nice.

The perspective is amazing! The modern architecture is dwarfing the dignified Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel.
I like that there is a pedestrian in the composition!
