Paris

A bit of a cliche, I know... but, hey, it was my memorable moment in Paris.


Paris - Pont Notre-Dame by Slobodan Blagojevic, on Flickr

P.S. For those new to Flickr, once you are there, click again on the picture to see it larger and on a plain, black background (that way you would be able to see a bit more of shadow details too)

Nice.

But if you wanted it to be less of a cliche, you could, of course, clone out the sun rays and replace the sky with a nice, clear, blue sky. But I think I prefer your version.

Wow, I had no idea Paris is that red. Great shot, Slobodan.

Nice work, Slobodan, but did you get to tango?

Sorry, it's getting late - 1a.m. exactly...  best off to bed.

A word of caution for when you wake up Rob,

Check the butter before spreading your toast!

This is a great shot. And it's a big improvement seeing it larger and on the black background.

Itís purdy shot, Slobodan. Were it mine, I would remove the ?traffic light? Immediately to the R of the sun. It works like a trap. The eye is drawn there by the sun and the spotlight effect doesnít leave an easy escape route. Removing the light would solve that.

Beautiful setting, colors, and about 97% of a great capture.

... I would remove the traffic light...

But... but... that would be cheating, right!? My dad thought me not to. National Geographic wouldn't accept it in its competitions (not that I believe it is at that level, but anyway). Then there is a crane in the distance... marring the classical Parisian setting... shall I remove it too? Where do I stop? At some point, too much photoshopping might lead to an implosion of the universe, I do not want to contribute to that  ;)

The longer I am photoshopping, the more I am inclined not to "perfect" everything, to leave little signs of imperfections as the remnants of real life, and to avoid that dead giveaway of digital: everything neat, clean and too perfect.

Just eliminate everything but the sun, Slobodan, and the distractions will be gone.
