Paris monuments and people : beautiful winter 2015

This winter was beautiful in Paris with many sunny days and a blue sky. I was 2 week-ends in the city of lights and could get great pictures of the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, the River Seine, Hotel de Ville,the Sacré Coeur, and many other street photography shots with people.

Some of these pictures are made in HDR (High Dynamic Range) to be closer to the vision of our eyes. The sensor of the camera has a limited dynamic range : to compensate this, I take 3 times the same picture at different exposures. Then I mix them in HDR Pro Photoshop. after a few settings, that is supposed to give more details and better colors. I shot all the pictures with my Sony A7R and the Zeiss lens 35mmF2.8 .

I hope you will enjoy the pictures!
