These were taken at the Opera Garnier in Paris with my FZ50. We were only allowed into the front lobby area, with the ability to just catch a glimpseof the beauty of this great building. Unfortunately, we never had a chance to get back and go on a day when it was fully open..

Hi Greg

Some nice shots indeed from the FZ50, espp with the avilable light. They look pretty clean and good detail to boot.

Cheers

Thanks, HarjTT!

I'm finding with the FZ50, it really helps to use the right type metering as much as anything in getting the best results possible. In the case of these, the Opera Garnier IS dark. Multi-segment or even centerweighted metering would have tried averaging things out too much. By using spot metering andzooming in to meter more accuratelyand moving the finderinto and out of what lights were there, I was able to find a level of exposure that kept the shadows where they should have been instead of bringing them out more at the expense of increased noise.

I used this same process constantlyin places like the Louvre, Versailles and others. It was both a fun trip, bothto see everything I saw, and the challenge of getting the most I could from the FZ50.

These are quite nice. I checked EXIF on one and saw an ISO of 400. With my FZ7 at that ISO they would not come close to this good.
