Paris - Gare du Nord - SNCF - TGV - Train Station

I consider this train station to be my main entrance and main exit of Paris. This is where I arrive by Thalys, and where I will have my last glimpse of the City d'Amour. With all it's Hausmannien buildings and street patterns, Metropolitain, Hautain and Beggars, and loads and loads more.

 

And the best thing is: I'll be seeing all that and more by tomorrow - again! For four days I'll be spending the days with friends and my camera.

 

Photo shown here is a HDR rendering using 6 different exposures. It's the first time I use more than the usual 3 exposures, and I'm pretty much pleased with the result.

 

Anyway, off to bed, it's going to be a long day tomorrow!

    You lucky, lucky thing! I'm still suffering withdrawal symptoms!! And this picture is absolutely gorgeous! The station is beautiful, but how glamorous you've made it look!! *Sigh* How I long to still be there! :~)

    I'm even more curious to see how it will be after they finish the works off -the facade is being cleaned (how to put that in EN...)

    Nice work Stewie. Only viewing on iPhone at the moment will need to take a second look later. Enjoy gay Pareeeee! I'm off to a small country town 150km north of Adelaide for the weekend! The delights offered may be somewhat less than that afforded by the City of Light.

    wow, beautiful!

    I rode that when I was in Paris. It's a really big place! Beautiful shot! :]

    Kijk, dit is nou een fijne HDR. Geen rare overtrokken kleuren maar een palet wat meer de werkelijkheid weergeeft. Heel mooi.
