Paris 2009 Revisited

Paris 2009, HDR

View from our hotel, overlooking the Paris School for the Deaf. My favorite HDR photo to date! (Click to see a larger version without leaving the site; works for all images on this page.)

Looking down the Seine. We were walking across the river on a different bridge, after having ridden the bus from Place de la Concorde.

Sainte-Chapelle; this was taken a couple of blocks from the previous picture, about a block from one of our most frequently utilized bus stops.

Eiffel Tower from across the river. The clouds are natural (other than the HDR processing).

French Senate, Luxembourg Gardens. The gardens begin across the street from where our hotel was located. As a result of its nearness, we enjoyed multiple visits to the park.

I started looking over some of my recent photos to see if any were amenable to HDR processing. While it’s best to use multiple images when creating a High Dynamic Range image, reasonable results can be achieved with just one photo.

Once I got started I ended up creating an HDR photo of the month for 2009 photo series. When I got to the May photos from Paris I guess you could say I got sidetracked, as I ended up creating 10 different Paris HDR photos (the HDR photo of the month will likely appear in the near future).

My favorite 6 are shown above (don’t forget, you can click on any of the images and see a larger version without leaving this site) and the rest are available on Flickr: Paris 2009 (HDR).

    I was there the say before and saw sunrays so came back with my camera hoping I would get it again the next day. Unfortunately not but still a good shot. Loved your collection!

    May we have your permission to use the photo that you took of the school for the deaf in Paris for including in my booklet I now work on for honoring the anniversary of the 300th birth of Abbe de l;Epee. Please let me know before this Thursday as possible. My number is 301-563-9062. Thanks so much
