Paris, un jour de pluie, un jour de grisaille.
Photographié en couleur.

I was walking in the rain, I saw this red umbrella, I immediately knew that I will do a partial desaturation.

I took several photos and I thought this one was the best compared to the position of the red umbrella in the scene.

Then I tried the HDR. I merged 3 images.

This is the result. I like, looks like a drawing with black pencil on grainy paper.

A mix of HDR and partial desaturation. My first time with this experiment.

Hi Daisy,
a great view of a rainy day in Paris. the red umbrella against the desaturated BG works really well

Hi Daisy,
The red being a strong focal point against the de-saturated entity. Nicely detailed and a good crop.

Bonjour Daisy,
Comme quoi, même sous la pluie et la grisaille, Paris demeure la plus Belle.
J'aime beaucoup l'effet "crayon à papier" produit par cette composition, le trottoir brillant éclaircissant la scène.
Petit clin d'oeil, également, à la bouche de Métro où se rend probablement cette personne au parapluie rouge!

Ciao Daisy!

Fine idea.
Fine shot.
Original work.
What about my WS?


Bonjour Daisy.
C'est sympa CE rouge qui réchauffe la scène Dans un jour cafard.
Le thème de ce vendredi c'est touche féminine.
Et ce que je vois est une touche de femme.
Ps Dans l'index (F,page 12) ça c'est avec le nom generique "Friday theme for 19 February 2016")

Hi Daisy

Great shot. Wet pavements always seem to photograph very well. What can I say that you don't know and what hasn't been said already?

Très belle composition qui donne envie de se promener sous la pluie ! J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage sur un petit coin typique de Paris et la position du parapluie rouge est idéale !

Like this image very much, Paris is one of my favourite places,
and you have captured the essence, with this shot.
Best Wishes.

Hello Daisy
Very artistic and a pleasure to view. Very well done. I think you really succeeded in attaining your goal with this image.

Daisy... tres bien (I think that's right, my French is not good, in fact, it is non-existant).
I like what you've done with an image that, without the red umbrella, would be rather boring. The B&W conversion, increased contrast, how the light reflects off the floor, and of cours, the lone splash of colour makes the image striking.
