Louvre #2

Posted by
kiwisa (North Shore, New Zealand) on 18 February 2010 in Architecture and Portfolio.

Yes - this is the traditional view everyone takes, but again the contrast of the old and new, the sharp lines and curves were all very appealing and just had to be photographed.

Canon EOS 450D 1/80 second F/8.0 ISO 200 18 mm

Xerophytes from London, United Kingdom

Great shot. Although, I don't really like the building on the right side with light shining on it. It somehow destroys the "blue mood" if you get what I mean.

The colour palette is top knotch, though I have to agree with Xerophytes about the building on the right

Just splendid.
May be traditionnal, but the light, between shadow and sun is terrific, and the pyramid always a beauty

I have not been to the Louvre so a traditional shot is just perfect.
