A week spend in Paris taking photos, is just not enough. I still have a huge list of places I want to go there and some of those I visited I definitively need to revisit. And the list get bigger and bigger. Same with the Arc De Triomphe. I like the photos I got, but I still wan to go up and take a nice sunset shot from there. Maybe next time :)

Blue hour at the Arc De Triomphe

A nicely lit Eiffel tower, during the blue hour. Something one could take photos of for a long time. You can see there are some additional parts to it on the photos, as the first floor is currently under reconstruction. But it’s good that there are not so different from the tower, so you can’t even see them that much.

With all the lights on

I love the colors in this one. Even with it raining most of the day, the night was usable. You don’t get any blue hour with the sky being completely covered with clouds, but once the sun goes down, the city lights will make all clouds glow yellow. There is so much more light for night shooting then.

Sharp architecture

Recently I don’t do so much daytime photography and focus more on sunrise/sunset/blue hour. But if the weather is right, I go out to take few shots. And I found a moment in Paris, when it was worth it. Only a moment, as the clouds disappeared very quickly. I used a 9 stop ND filter for this, as I like the soft water so much that I want it even in my day shots.

Long exposure shot

This was actually my second trip to Paris. My first one was 13 years ago at a school trip. I don’t remember much from that trip (scenery really was not on my mind when I was 17 years old :)), but this finger was one of the thing I remembered and I also knew where it was. Other that the area looks wery different from what I saw then. It was mostly a construction site then.
