About

 

This is my second upload from our trip to Paris last weekend, sure the first one needed to be a shot of the famous Eiffel tower itself, it's a nightshot seen from the top of the 210m high Montparnasse tower.

 

This glass and metal ball can be found somewhere on the Eiffel tower, it was hidden behind a fence and most people would have passed by it unaware of its presence, I just caught a glimpse of it but sure couldn't resist to HDRrize this one !-)

 

I don't actually know what this thing represents, so if anyone knows do drop a comment and I will add the description.

 

The shot

 

A bit difficult, looking slightly higher than confortable over a fence and finding a solid base to do the 3 exposures.

Standard 3 exposure shot in RAW/ISO100 at f/11 using the Sigma 10-20mm lens.

° A crop.

° Some extra saturation.

° Dodging of the highlights.

° Smart sharpen filter.
