View on black please!

It's been a while since I've posted a black and white image, let alone a square format one! I was about to leave the Louvré when I thought I'd better take a photo of La Pyramide Inversée. I rushed over to it to find it, unsurprisingly, surround my hundreds of people. I had no time (or permission) to set up my tripod, so I took a quick handheld series of shots and thought I'd see what I could do in Photoshop later. Then I went off to explore the rest of Paris.

Well, last night I thought I'd give this shot a go. I think it's taken on quite a ghostly and mystical feel. I wasn't hugely taken with it at first, but it's been slowly growing on me, so I thought I'd post it up. Sorry if I haven't been as active on Flickr as usual; I've been hugely busy with my day job and with martial arts stuff in the evenings and weekends. I'll hopefully get some catching up done this weekend when I have time to relax and redesign my website (hopefully).

Speaking of which, in case you haven't already seen it, Oliver Winter (Discovering Views) has done a fantastic write-up about commenting on photographs and promoting yourself in a respectful way. I thoroughly recommend you read it, not just because yours truly gets a special mention:

    Very ghosty indeed, those blurry 'ghosts' actually added some interestingness in this photo. There are some intriguing lines and shapes in this photo too, your processing/framing made this photo very 'comfortable' to look at (or should I use the word 'balanced'?) :-p
