To break away from the landscapes shots for a moment, today I have a night shot form Paris. It’s a little off center, but I just could not get to the center spot. There were too many people on the Traocadero, and the best spot was occupied by another photographer who was taking photos of that lovely red moon, which you can see to the left of the tower.

This is a manual blend from 4 shots. I’m sorry if the sky looks horrible. It looked so good as a 16bit file in Photoshop. But after exporting it, the colors created a horrible bending. I managed to correct that, but after uploading to Smugmug it created very ugly artifacts there and I haven’t found a way to remove those.
