The Little People in Paris

I took this from inside of The Louvre last year. I think my camera got the exposure wrong and made a strange but interesting picture. I added the Vignetting myself.

  1. It just goes to show you, it's more about the angle and the shot sometimes. This is a great B&W photo!

  4. I like this picture because it shows how tall and majestuous the place is..The picture puts the place back to its right scale. [And I remember having pictured the benches in this yard! :)]

  5. Stunning shot, very professional!
    I mean, it would be wonderful in a frame, in a "big size" printing!
    I like the way you see the scenery outside the window.This Museum is really massive, I need to come back!

  6. I find this photo fascinating. Something I would expect to see in a magazine or book. It is really neat. Agree with Cezar and Leia - a really large print of this would be stunning on a wall.

  7. YOU might think you goofed the picture up, but as the comments are telling you....it turned out great...sometimes as photographers we are our own worst critics...and the "bad" pictures just might be some of our finest....

  8. I agree, it's Murphy's Law...the more you analyze a shot the less likely it will be as unique as this one turned out to be! The perspective, angle and black and white is SO good! I really like this! I am sure it would stand apart from other photos of this same place down at ground level.

  9. What a spectacular shot James! The composition is fantastic, the setting magnificent. The figures really add to the scale and sense of spaciousness. And just the right amount of vignetting. I love it!

  10. You got a photo when there were not many people around. You got quite a bit in one shot.

    The diffusion of people is a fascinating view.

  13. James, it's s stunning photo. I think you've passed the amateur category now :) I'm also thrilled to see that the temporary building hogging this wonderful courtyard is now gone.

  15. I'm sorry that I missed this post, it must have been while I was under the weather.
    It's a wonderful image and the people do look very small.

  16. That is the "Cour Carrée du Louvre" It is a beautiful place to see in the evening, when it is illuminate. The town rumor all around seems so far away... A strange place, that seems out of the world.

    I never saw it this way, though, thanks for this beautiful sharing...

  18. I don't see anything wrong at all. And I think it's a fantastic view of the square!
