The Champs de Ellesse leading up to the unmistakable Arc de Triomphe, I felt like doing something different with this someone unconventionally composed image. I really liked the way the empty street quickly turns into busy traffic especially the little car and then the bus with the gorgeous model on it. This was taken in June 07 on our Paris tour.

I’ve tried a multi-layer processing technique on this image, blending a number of different techniques to make it the final look including selective blurring, high-pass filtering, but basically I kept trying things to see what worked well together.

    Looks a lot like a lithographic print. Great use of the effect you used. Was it HDR again?

    You know what I love about this Craig? The fact that it is not a full on shot of the Arc de Triomphe. That fact alone takes it out of the ordinary and catapults it into the extraordinary!! Andit is so fascinating that the front half is virtually free of traffic…

    A new twist on an old monument. Great work.
