First of all, thank you very much for all your comments, responses, shares and likes to my yesterdays post. Your support is very appreciated. Still if you like the article, please share it further. I think more people still need to understand the value of photos.

My photo for today is a little less colorful than my other photos, but I think it nicely captures the mood of the day I took it. It was a rainy day, with heavy clouds covering the sky most of the time. It was a day like made for B&W photography. I even tried this one in B&W and I quite liked it, I just always miss the color so much, that I never use the B&W version :)

This is of course the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, captured in May last year. I used the Hoya ND400 filter to get a long exposure to blur the water. This is a HDR created in Oloneo Photoengine (I was lazy to blend the moving leafs of the trees, and so I used the deghosting in Oloneo) and finished in Photoshop.
