• Did you darken the sky? Or is it the glare from the building? - Nicolas Llasera
  • This unfortunately is the result of adding the Shadows/Highlights Filter in PS, this leaves some unfavourable Halos. I will use some custom paths in the final version to avoid these. But for the prescan it is a convenient way to balance the contrast in an image.

Paris #27 prescan

View from the Temple de Sybille in Parc des Buttes Chaumont down the Avenue de Laumière. To some people it is a sting, but I love the fusion of old appartment buildings and modern appartment towers.

This one is basically the same as #26, except that it is shot in landscape format - which is just a small difference in 8x10, but anyhow, I still can not decide. I like the traffic in the lower part better in #26.

    The composition is great, and the light is just beautiful. The yellows close up and the blue shades in the distance are just great!
