Hi Andrew! Nice shot of the Eiffel Tower and the Pont d'Léna! The original colours of my Eiffel Tower photo were similar but I changed them a little...Greetings and a Happy New Year to you, Anne:)
Very beautiful picture, Andrew! Almost looks like B/W. Greetings, Anne
Thank you for visiting my gallery and your nice comment, Andrew! I'm glad you like this photo.
Merry Christmas to you as well! Cheers, Anne
This thing looks like a marvel in terrazzo. Expertly composed to boot.
Thanks Michael for your interest. Some explanations of this shot seems justified. When I took it, the incident light from the sun dominated the top third of the shot. As a result the color of the sky was heavily falsified by the way the CCD sensor reacts to an overdose of direct sunlight. To bring the blue back to a more natural hue I tweaked it in Photoshop. As a result there was an off-gamut distortion of the light being reflected off the sculpture. I decided to leave it there as the effect lent a bit of extra drama to the overall composition.
I would also like to wish you a merry Christmas as well. Keep shooting!
This is painting! This is art! Artistic composition. Narrative...
