p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Few more Paris shots :)


Saw some Paris shots here, and decided to post some I took in October of 2010. My wife took me for my Birthday. PP may not be to everyone's liking though...

p.1 #2 · p.1 #2 · Few more Paris shots :)


#1 -- This shot would look super classy as a black and white with some boosted contrast
#2 -- Seems crooked and kind of flat. Maybe tone down the saturation and boost the contrast again
#3 -- HDR? A little over done. The object of HDR is create a dramatic, yet still realistic looking picture. This is a bit unrealistic looking...and very noisy too (a result of the over done HDR)
#4 -- Don't really care for this one too much
#5 -- Very cool. The HDR works here -- makes for a picturesque scene (pardon the pun)
#6/#7 -- I like these, nice job
#8 - -Classic, maybe even over done, but good nonetheless
#9 -- Not sure, myself
#10 -- Seems crooked, but has lots of potential
#11 -- Kind of boring

Hope that helps! Might sound a little harsh, but most of these pictures have a lot of potential. Some more processing (or lack thereof) will turn up some great shots!

Keep it up!

Thanks for taking your time, to go over all of these...

as I stated, processing might not be to everyone's liking... many are overcooked, yes, and may not realistic in a true sense of photography. I hope I am not offending anyone though

Re: HDR, I am not a believer in true by-the-book HDR, to me HDR is... essentially various ways of stretching the dynamic range....

I am glad you liked Photo Number 5 - it is actually blown to poster size and is hanging in my bedroom, like a window to Paris. This was essentially our view from the hotel in Paris.

My pleasure My comments are my sheer opinions, nothing more. I still enjoyed looking through the pictures. You have sparked a desire to visit Paris in me haha

Paris or South of France (I posted a few photos here as well) - my wife is always ready to go, just say the word "Paris" and she gets very vocal

I'm not a big fan of the HDR images themselves, but the series as a whole is very nice. I have never been to Paris, so you did a well good job at presenting the city itself in still photography.

Not everyone is a HDR fan, but I will say that photo #2 is very well executed. I like the depth the image portrays, along with being above the buildings, and capturing the essence of the Eiffel Tower. Well done.

My wife and I were there for two days, back in Fall, 2010...it was magnificent!
and, as you stated, 'a great city for photography'

That said, since you were in Paris, not, Pisa, Italy, the Eiffel Tower should not be leaning!
