A few weeks ago after having spent about an hour waiting for the right light at the Sacre Coeur I walked back down to my scooter (in fact if you look really well you can see it on this photo) and I was impressed by these stairs doing down.
So I set up the tripod, disturbed all the people trying to walk down (which gave me a clear space to shoot) and got this photo. It is HDR and a combination of three pictures.
What worked out best was the reduce the colors as much as possible, since the dark night didn’t give much color in the first place.
Stairs are always a great subject for photography, I am not sure why. Maybe it’s because it gives a rythm and visual rythm is a great scene for photography.
Well if you are going to Paris you can take the “elevator” up the hill to Sacre Coeur, I suggest you take the stairs – it’s much nicer.
