    Default The light of the Arc de Triomphe

    http://www.pbase.com/image/10122127/large

    Arc de Triomphe of Paris at night. Can't remeber whether I posted this or not but if you guys have seen it then nevermind!

    Can you guys believe it? I went to Paris, took 200+ shots and out of these I only like 3-4 shots. Does this happen all time?

    yeah, too much black space on the top.

    i would also have composed it slightly differently: would have the road occupying 2/3 of the picture and with the arc appearing only at the top 1/3. i.e. you're leading the eye to the subject (the arc).

    good clean shot though.

    enjoy!

    Thanks the tips and suggestions!

    Regarding my Paris trip: Didn't spend much there, on a student budget you see! I think I spent about 100+ Euros on the food/transport/entrance fee. Stayed in a 2 star (or was it 3?) which was about 30mins train ride to the city area. oh and it was a free and easy tour, no guides.

    If you go to Paris, make sure you pick up the Paris Visite pass, its a unlimited travel pass for the metro. Saves you ALOT on transport.

    You can get them at any of the Metro stations. Just ask them for it. Can't remeber the price for it but there are different prices for it. Like for Zones 1-3 and 3 days its one price and so on. Hope I'm not confusing you!
