About

 

This is my third upload from our trip to Paris last weekend.

 

I'm sure there are thousands of shots to be found of this glass pyramid & the Louvre, so I think I've pulled off a couple of interesting angles of this but I'm not sure they haven't been done before.

 

The shot

 

Single shot in RAW/ISO100 at f/14 using the Sigma 10-20mm lens on a tripod ( of course ) using a remote to start and stop the exposure.

 

There are actually always walking way too many people around here, but using these long expsoures ( 100 seconds here ) that problem solves itself, as long as people don't muck about in the same place for more than a second or 5 there is no real problem.

 

Adobe Camera Raw

 

° A little less exposure.

° A little extra contrast.

° Extra clarity.

° Some extra saturation.

 

Photoshop

 

° A small hue change to give it a slightly warmer tone.

° A small amount of dodging on the water reflection.
