|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I've been so busy with work that I've not had a chance to get out and about with camera in the last couple of months. I was looking through my RAW files and found this one which seemed to have passed me by when I initially took it. |
On a recent break to Paris in February, one of our first sightseeing spots was Sacre Couer. This impressive church is located at the highest point in the city, butte Montmartre. By the time we got to see it, it was unfortunately quite late in the day so the sky was quite dull and colours were quite washed out. That's why I thought it would be best to convert to Black & White and increase the saturation of the bronze statue in the bottom right hand corner.

Your POV makes an excellent composition. The Monochrome treatment reveals the various shapes and textures of your subject.
I like the perspective and the sharpness that allows to see some details
A lovely capture from Sacre Couer with nice details!
I like the lower POV which gives nice details on its building stone.
The textures are well revealed and thinking of cloudy day, you managed the light quite well.
The sharpness and contrast are well done too.
Around 10 years ago, I have been to this place. It has a wonderful architecture.
Thanks and regards,
