Louvre_Talke
Paris is my favorite city in the world. I am lucky enough to have been there numerous times. I love just walking around the city exploring. The Louvre at night is wonderful. Crowds have diminished and the pyramids are ready to be HDR’d!

I have added the color version of this shot today to my HDR Backgrounds for Composites…this one would be a cool background! Link is here…HDR Backgrounds

Paris, France – Where the streets have no name


Not many strolls around a city can top one in Paris with the Eiffel Tower in your view. This day I had taken tons of Tower shots and wanted to try a different view and went walking around town trying to get the Tower showing above the tops of buildings. This area was lovely…and I can imagine very very expensive! Bakeries and small shops on every corner…must be wonderful to live there! Crepe time…Oui Oui!

Just a little photoshop fun from Paris, France. The Eiffel Tower in infrared with an extra added effect. The frame around the photo was from onOne’s Software Photo Frame 4.6. Enjoy!

Paris, France – Moulin Rouge (HDR)


From my favorite city in the world…Paris, France. When I visited last I had made it a goal to photograph Moulin Rouge. I arrived at 5 PM and made my way up to this section of Paris. Not the most beautiful location. Odd folks all around and specialized “shops” are all over. I kept my tripod in hand as I walked the streets. I did not get a chance to see the show inside…maybe one day. I am sure it is interesting! I stayed until 11 PM and the nite life around here is very interesting. I was happy to head back to the safe part of town after grabbing the shots I wanted. Wish I had a crepe right now! Viva Le France! ..the effect on the pic was done in Photo Tools 2.6!
