Default Fountain in Paris

I took this picture in Paris during my vacation in December last year.
It was very hard to shoot it. I took several pictures untill I finally
got the one I really liked. I'm quite impressed with how it turned out.

The Eiffle towers can also be seen on the backgroud (bottom left).



Comments and suggestions are always welcome!

Nice shot. Exposure is perfect. I wouldn’t have noticed the Tour Eiffle if you hadn’t pointed it out – or identified it even if I noticed it.

I don't see the Eiffel tower at all, the background being completely black on my screen. I'm fairly sure I keep my screen darker than most others, but I do it because my printer always prints too dark. The dark screen forces me to see my photos closer to how they'll print out. Does anyone else do this sort of thing?

I love the way the gold and green stand out, almost illuminated from within, against the pure black. Very lush!

I wanted to add the link to the original size (actually it was cropped) to the first post, but I forgot. So if you want to check it out (it'll also be easier to find the tower ), here it is:

(it's BIIIG)


And here is a Large sized one (smaller than the original size):

Btw, thanks for the comments and compliments!

I like the exposure and color saturation! Perhaps cropped a bit too closely, but otherwise a wonderful shot.

Isn't that the way it is? :lol: That's why I have large format cards, so I can take enough pictures to ensure I have at least one good one.

My monitor is profiled and calibrated (Spyder/Optical) and my printer has profiles for the paper that I'm using (free from Red River which is the paper I use). The end product is that my prints are reasonably close in color and tonal range as my monitor.

I looked into that, but after I saw the price, I went back to my TestStrip method, which works extremely well but requires a huge reservoir of patience. Hmm...I wonder if it's on eBay...

Use Adobe's Gamma program that came with Photoshop. It is subjective to your visual perceptions, but it does get you fairly close.
