A more simple photo for today. While I was taking photos in Paris, most of the trees were still green. But in some of the side streets, the Autumn color already taken over. And this is from one of those streets :)

This is mostly a single exposures, edited in Lightroom. I had to blend few bright spots from a second exposure in Photoshop.

Autumn shot

Technique: Photoshop blend, Number of exposures: 2, Camera Model: Sony a7R + Metabones MkIII Adapter, Lens: Canon 24-70mm F2.8, Focal length: 16mm, Aperture: 9, Middle exposure time: 1/50s, ISO: 100, Tripod used: yes, Location: 48.856510, 2.286782

Don’t you just love how much you get with a wide angle lens. It gives such a different view of the world. And this is just the 16mm, can’t even imagine if I had the 12mm lens form Canon :)

This is a photo from the Bir-Hakeim bridge in Paris, it’s a HDR from 3 exposures, created in Oloneo Photoengine, finished in Photoshop.

Wide angle view

Technique: Oloneo Photoengine, Number of exposures: 3, Camera Model: Sony a7R + Metabones MkIII Adapter, Lens: Canon 16-35mm F2.8, Focal length: 16mm, Aperture: 14, Middle exposure time: 6s, ISO: 100, Tripod used: yes, Location: 48.856510, 2.286782

While on the topic of reflections and Paris landmarks, how about another one :) This one is from a morning blue hour right next to the Notre Dame. Their are both (this and the one from yesterday) actually a bit untypical for me, as I really do prefer landscape format to vertical orientation. There are many reasons, but I think the main one is how we, humans, see things. We just see so much more horizontally than vertically at once, so a nice big landscape photo can be so much more immersible than a vertical one. But thats maybe just my view of it :)

Most of this shot is a single exposure, with few parts blended in from a 3 shot HDR created in Photoengine.

Calm morning

Technique: Oloneo Photoengine, Number of exposures: 3, Camera Model: Sony a7R + Metabones MkIII Adapter, Lens: Canon 16-35mm F2.8, Focal length: 23mm, Aperture: 7.1, Middle exposure time: 5.0s, ISO: 200, Tripod used: yes, Location: 48.853066, 2.347101

I just had to take as many shots I could while having all the reflections from the puddles. And even with quite a huge amount of people walking around, I managed to get this without any of them in the shot. One has to like long night exposures :)

This is a HDR from 3 exposures, created in Oloneo Photoengine, finished in Photoshop.

Broken up reflection

Technique: Oloneo Photoengine, Number of exposures: 3, Camera Model: Sony a7R + Metabones MkIII Adapter, Lens: Canon 16-35mm F2.8, Focal length: 16mm, Aperture: 11, Middle exposure time: 15.0s, ISO: 100, Tripod used: yes, Location: 48.856301, 2.297177

I tried for a shot like this already last time I was in Paris, but if you were there, you know that this bridge is quite busy during the day. But as always I tried before the sunrise, on a rainy day, and there was almost nobody. Still I had to do two series of shots, to get rid of thew few people that walked into my shots, but it worked out quite nicely.

This is a blend of two same HDRs, each one from 3 exposures, created in Oloneo Photoengine, finished in Photoshop.

Way to the cathedral
