A Cold Weekend in Vichy (many images alert)
Lens: DA 12-24 & Sigma 18-125 Camera: K5 Photo Location: Vichy, France 
Posted By: imaspy, 06-02-2013, 12:16 AM

Arrived in Vichy on the Friday, leaving by Monday. Had some time on Sunday to walk around and point the camera at things (this was one stop on my holiday to France in April). As usual, the French architecutre was beautiful, but Vichy also caught the Art Deco bug quite severely for a relatively small place, and there are interesting examples of it everywhere.

It was a reasonably chilly day (about 9 degrees), so not many people around. And everybody's favourite - an overcast sky making any sections of sky in photos just looking like an off-white nothing I tried to convey the chilly-ness through the post processing. Post done with LR, using a combo of exposure, WB, and VSCO, with the odd sharpening here and there; then cut down with a 5x7 crop factor. Enjoy!

You'll eventually come across the St Blaise church. You know how all those beautiful old European churches start to look the same after a while? Well, when you come across an art deco church, it generally makes you take notice. I was infatuated with this building, it was beautiful.

Opera Vichy

These covered walkways went down either side of the park in front of the opera house and formed a V shape. They were beautiful, and each over 300m long.
