    A gorgeous shot!! I have a similar one taken in daylight, however this night shot and your postprocessing make it SHINE!!

  • Thanks Karen. It shows how we can photograph the same thing differently.

    What an incredibly dramatic shot! I remember walking this road up to Sacred Coeur when I was there, such a great sight. It’s really given Montmatre such historical value in this shot.

  • Thanks. Doing the processing of this image took me back …. dreams of doing nothing except wandering around Paris …

    Beautiful contrast and perspective. An example of night photography to aspire to… now I just need to get to Paris!

  • Thanks Shane. You have spotted may plan as well. Missed out on the big lotto the other day so I will have to work on more conventional plans to get back to Paris. I hope I can keep up the standard of b&w work.

    Fantastic night photography, mono works really well here. A fave!

  • Thanks. I have a colour version of this scene and I almost used it – I still may upload it. I really enjoy night photography – maybe it is the solitude – it is almost like meditation.

    Hey Alex,,, instant fav,, the tones you have here are marvelous..fantastic pov and compostion!! ’-)

  • Thanks Linda. Paris is such a good place for night photography. I did not have a tripod with me so I am glad I did not consume much wine that night – I could hold the camera still. The big challenge here was the post production. I did not want to over produce the final image. I am very happy with the end result.
