Below the Pont Neuf, Paris
Nikon D200
Nikkor 55-200mm

I was on the Pont Neuf enjoying the sights of Paris and saw this lady with the bright red coat walking along the Seine riverbank. Spring has not shown itself in Paris yet, so everything seems to be a washed-out grey/brown colour. Her coat really captured my eye, adding such a contrast to the scene.

Other than resizing and minor sharpness issues, no colour adjustments have been made.

Paris is the capital of France.

Bermuda born so I occasionally get “rock fever” and have to travel – especially to France! Mostly use my Nikon D200, but also use a Sony Cybershot DSC T90 and a Lumix DMC-LX5 for quick shots.

    How long did you have to wait for the lady in red to come along? Well done.

  • Thanks Hans! Everyone seems to wear black in Paris – the only ones showing any colour were children and tourists!

    Everytime I look at this picture it reminds me of the movie Schindler’s List. I love the colour contrast in the picture, the pop of red really addsto the “dullness” of the weather. Great job!

  • Thanks for the comments jenndanielle! Glad you like it.
