Paris, France – Place de la Concorde (HDR)

A few years back I walked near these fountains in Place de la Concorde and gave it a try at nite in HDR.  They were a perfect match!  Now I keep going back to find a new angle and view.  This was from last November, I had my new fisheye with me…so I had to give it a try on the fountain!    If you walk from the Louvre back to Arc De Triomphe, these wonderful fountains are on the way!

Its nice to go back to a subject you have shot before and look at it with a fresh eye (and a fisheye…lol).   Keep mixing it up or improve on a shot you took but could have been better.   In my opinion, familiarity in a subject is a key to photography growth.   How many times have I shot the Austin Capitol Building??   Countless.  Pushing the limits of your artistic eye makes you a better photographer.   It makes you look harder to find a new great shot  that you have yet to take.  Just go out and take tons of pictures.  A pro just doesn’t go out and take one shot and be done…they experiment as well!
