D7000 goes to Paris. CC welcome.
Sep 18, 2012

I have been recently to Paris with relatives and just couldn't hold myself to make some photos that are not the touristic ones

Most pictures taken with 70-200, (new) 50 f1.8 and my work horse 16-35 F4.
Post production using Lightroom mostly and some using Nik software plugins.

Feel free to see the rest of the set on http://www.flickr.com/photos/vhmoura

Thanks

I really like the last one. Can you tell me how this was taken? Is it crop from a wide angle shot? What lense were you using?

They are all nice!

Thanks,

Michael

Hello Michael,

Thanks for the comments.

I used a 16-35 Lens for this shot (which is my work horse) with an aperture of 4.

I took 3 shots and used Nik hdr pro 2 to get all together. I am not a massive fan of HDR that we normally see on the web, but I occasionally use it. I tried not to make this shot so harsh or over processed. So instead I opted for more balanced tones and just the color that I made a bit kind of "medieval".

I only cropped a bit on the left so the image looks more symmetrical and the bottom part which I did on purpose when taking the photo because I knew I could end up with alignment problems (it is pretty much impossible to use tripod there). Distorted a bit using elements and that was it. It sounds a long process, but it only took like 10 minutes. I think it was worth it.

Thanks
Vini

In general very good
Last one seems like HDR to me, which personally I have never liked.

Thanks for posting

Thanks Vini! That reminds me of shots I have tried to take in the Library of Congress in Washington DC. They always seem to show too much detail (too close) or not enough detail (too far away). I never thought of doing a portrait panarama shot. Thanks for the tip!

Underside of fountain shot
In reply to Aborigene, Sep 20, 2012

Nice pics. Was the shot of the underside of the fountain with sky and drippng water an HDR shot? Lots of DR showing detail in sky and dark underside of fountain.

Thanks

Hi Michael,

Thanks for you kind comments.

It is not a HDR at all. The one with big fountain is one shot that I used HDR Pro2 to adjust.

The other one (half fountain), it is just a normal shot with minimal adjustments on lightroom to light the fountain a bit.

Cheers
Vini

Very nice composition. As someone up there said.

But I loathe (sorry, I had to use a strong verb) the colouration change. This whole goldish grey patina all over the photos. It murkies them and gives them this slight HDR feel.

I would've prefered something bright and vibrant.

Great photos, much better than mine, I visited Paris 3 times while in Air Force back in the 60s, I took photos from very top of Eiffle tower, with my Kodak, instamatic, it was fun but photos nothing like todays or yours.
