Paris, France – Le Grande Roue (HDR)

The fun of photography is to find a subject and take a shot in with a different view.  Challenge yourself to photograph a subject like no other has taken before.  I do this as much as possible.  Of course I take the standard shots, but afterwards, I let my camera have fun and try all kinds of angles.   As long I know the subject is interesting, why not?  ..and we are shooting digitally, so use up that compact flash card!

I am sure we have all seen ferris wheel shots, so here is my take on Le Grande Roue in HDR!  Tilted a bit and the multiple exposures create a cool motion flow.  Go onto Flickr or any photo site, what makes a photo interesting?  Not only the subject, but the composition is very important.   Have fun with your camera, just don’t take the shots every tourist is taking.  Amazing shots may be the outcome!
