When you think about Paris, you really don’t think about the modern parts. It’s really hard to associate modern skyscrapers with Paris. Just so strange :)

This is a three shots vertorama, taken in the La Defense district in Paris. Shot edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.

While in Lyon, all of the photo spots I planed were full of very classic, old architecture. But while I was walking through the city, I noticed a photo of this, the Euronews building on one of the promo posters for a ship tour company, so I had to find out what it is, and get a few photos.

This is one of them, a two shot vertorama, taken during the blue hour. Edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.

How about a photo from earlier this year, from my spring trip to Paris. I have not been there for a half year, and I would go back again anytime. Always want more photos from Paris :)

For this one, I did a three shot panorama (with the help of the tilt shift lens). Funny thing, most of the time I edited this photos, was spend with removing the trash from the grass, as it was just so distracting :/

While in Lyon, I noticed that they like to use crazy strong lights on the bridge pylons. Almost at every bridge. I had to do 5 exposure here, where mostly I can get by with 1 to 2. And still, I could have gone darker.

For this photo I first did a HDR tone mapped version, but I did not like the result, so I started from scratch again, and manually blended together the exposures to get this result.

The moment they turn on the first lights on a landmark, it always look different than few minutes later. It was the same for the Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière in Lyon. The first lights were of the inside areas, and they even were much yellower for few seconds. And this is what I got here :)
