[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A nightshot of this famous landmark in Paris. Teh speciality of the photo is that I did not use a ripod. Actually I don't understand why isn't it blurred. :) I wanted to experiment with this special tilted POV in the dark, please tell your opinion about it!

The Arc de Triomphe is a monument in Paris, France that stands in the centre of the Place Charles de Gaulle, also known as the Place de l'Étoile. It is at the western end of the Champs-Élysées. The triumphal arch honors those who fought for France, particularly during the Napoleonic Wars. On the inside and the top of the arc there are all of the names of generals and wars fought. Underneath is the tomb of the unknown soldier from World War I.

great night shot Kristof
excellent architecture , good light and shadows

Very Triumphfull.!
The evening light makes it even more beatiful.
The perspective is becourse of the 'close by' pov a bit destracting though.
Best regards from Jan

half a second without moving, great attempt
hope I'm not wrong but seems that distortion is emphasized by horizontal framing, try vertical framing when shooting big monuments from close POV

Very nice lights. Beautiful architecture. Good work. Well done. Thanks for sharing.


Hi Kristof
