The Louvre, Paris
I took part in a free Photowalk organised by Trey Ratcliff in Paris last autumn. It was scheduled to take place just as night fell, giving great opportunities for the creation of HDR images, and with one of the masters of the technique on hand to provide advice and guidance.
This is an image I took of the entrance to the Louvre museum.
It’s a three image composite, with post production in Lightroom, Photoshop, Photomatix and Topaz Adjust.
A key importance was the composition, ensuring the alignment of the pyramids with the centre of the building in the background, and also with the centre of the frame. Also key was the other tourists – as anyone who has been to the Louvre will know it’s a busy location, made even more so when there are several hundred photowalkers around the place with tripods everywhere!
I hope you enjoy it. This image is available for purchase as a Limited Edition print.
