    Nice photo. Do you have more from this trip? And stories to go along with the photos? In Journey threads, we'd sure like to see and read way more of what you discovered and shot along the way.

    These are a few additional shots captured in Paris Feb 2013. I am using Lightroom 5 in developing.

    Great! Understated and yet precise.

    This is also the spot where one can take the entire pano of Paris without Eiffel Tower sticking out.

    Thanks Alex. The view is just as you describe. I kept staring out at Paris and watching him perform with the soccer ball while hanging on the light. It seemed as if he were hanging over the city. It was then that the thought struck me...."Take the picture you idiot!"

    Here is a shot of what was behind me.

    Great shot. Appropriate processing as well: somber and imposing rather than frivolous.
