Louvre Palace Re-worked

Lourve Palace

 

I have not taken any new Photographs for a couple of weeks, I have been concentrating on, re working  some old Photographs.

You will see I have re worked my Louvre Palace Photograph using Lightroom and Colour FX pro.

The original Photograph is below

The Musée du Louvre Night

Achromatic

B&W Paris

I did not really feel like I had finished with Paris

So I converted some of my photographs to Black and White.

I was looking for that grainy gritty romantic notion of paris I have always had in my head.

I think Paris really lends its self to B & W and  I think its always how I pictured Paris  before I went there.

Hope you Like them

The Musée du Louvre Night

 

Well Paris has come to and end so I thought I would leave it with The Louvre courtyard at night.

Thank you to Everyone for all your fantastic comments I have really enjoyed them.

My Last Night is Paris was spent catching the metro, visiting the places I wanted to get a Photograph at night off

The The Pont Alexandre is definitely a must see especially at night if you ever go to Paris

From Wikipedia

The Pont Alexandre III is an arch bridge that spans the Seine, connecting the Champs-Élysées quarter and the Invalides and Eiffel Tower quarter, widely regarded as the most ornate, extravagant bridge in Paris.[1][2] It is classified as a historical monument.

Arc de Triomphe

Arc de Triomphe

 

A walk along the Champs-Élysées ,I can see where places like Rodeo Drive got there inspiration from. All the well known shopping  brands are here along the Champs-Élysées, and then at the and you come to the Arc de Triomphe. Huge crowds again and cars and buses everywhere.

 

From WikipediaFrom Wikipedia

The Arc de Triomphe de l’Étoile is one of the most famous monuments in Paris. It stands in the centre of the Place Charles de Gaulle (originally named Place de l’Étoile), at the western end of the Champs-Élysées.[3] It should not be confused with a smaller arch, the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel, which stands west of the Louvre. The Arc de Triomphe (in English: “Triumphal Arch“) honours those who fought and died for France in theFrench Revolutionary and the Napoleonic Wars, with the names of all French victories and generals inscribed on its inner and outer surfaces. Beneath its vault lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I.
