Rainbow Tower Paris Warp Effect [Explored #287]

The Shot

 

When I went to Paris in July I had another chance to Photograph the Rainbow Tower in the La Defense District. It is also a great subject to play around with the Photoshop Transform Warp Effect.

 

Among the skyscrapers there are a number of sculptures including this one. It is a fair bit smaller than the skyscrapers but still a good size, at a guess 40-50 ft tall. It can be found near the Esplanade de Defence Metro Station. The image was taken from right next to the tower.

 

The picture was taken handheld with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom at 10mm. No HDR for this one.

 

After enhancement in Topaz and Photoshop I used the Edit -Transform – Warp command to spread out and curve the base.

 

Full details of the processing together with before and after images are on my Blog see Edwin Jones Photography Blog
