No, this is not in France...Epcot is a large theme park divided into two different parts. "Future World" and "World Showcase" World Showcase is an incredible place to visit, providing an experience similar to visiting many countries from around the world. Countries like China, Norway, Germany, Italy, Japan, Morocco, France and Canada all have a dedicated area with stunning themeing to make you feel immersed in the culture.

I took this shot while standing on a bridge that leads into World Showcase. I used NIK viveza to add structure to the shot and then used color efex and created a custom preset to draw out most color and give the shot more of an artistic feel.

Boa noite Kurt,
No matter if that is not Paris/France because that image exists only because there are Paris and France and its image at Epcot and in our imaginary and recreating it with you and this eyecatching image. Stunning sharpness, details, cplors and contrasts.
Very well done.

Hi Kurt,
I like this effect! You managed to produce a classic from this panorama! Although in Florida you managed to render a French atmosphere with this Sepia toning which looks Romantic.
A very sharp and neat image. The POV is excellent and DOF is there!
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Hi Kurt

I like the bg Eiffel Tower & the faded pastel colors. Good sharpness & nice reflections & composition. The crossover sepia tints are interesting. Tfs!

A very well done artistic take on the Epcot themed Paris. The PP with just a hint of muted color in the largely sepia rendering successfully creates an old faded color photo.
Worthy of a gallery exhibit!

In Usa i parchi tematici sono perfetti.
Un po meno a Las Vegas ....poco spazio ed effetto "spazzatura" kitsch.
Questa foto un delicato tratteggio ...un ambiente "naturale" europeo style

Hello Kurt,
I loved the composition in reduced saturation along with sepia tone. It's innovative and looking nice. Eiffel tower in the background is providing a feel as if one is in Paris. Nice place, I wish to visit here one day. Thanks for sharing this image.
Kind Regards,

Hello,I thought it was Paris until I read your note.Excellent composition with needlesharp details.The sepia makes it look like a nostalgic postcard.Friendly regards,Otto.
