Hi everyone,

This is a shot taken from le Printemps rooftop in Paris.

Picture in full resolution there (flickr)

You can see la Madeleine church, The Eiffel Tower and the Grand Palais.

Its an HDR (5 exposures) processed with Lightroom & Photomatix.

Feel free to leave your opinion, even if it's for criticism!

Well done. I had no idea that it is a HDR.

Great job with the HDR, a good tasteful use. Since you asked for criticism: The yellow parts of the photo are a big contrast to the rest of the photo, which is blue. Those two elements seem a little unbalanced in the frame. But I know that I couldn't even take this photo, much less a significantly better one. The HDR is really outstanding, the photo would look absolutely amazing as a big print. Thanks for sharing, makes me want to visit Paris again

Wow - an exceptional city scape - I wouldn't have guessed it was HDR either.

Yep, I just like this, the colours, composition all works for me. It's also a different view of an instantly recognisable city, well done.

Indeed very subtle HDR treatment works well I think.
