La defense


A detail from the enormous Arche de la Défense, a building constructed as a hyper modern version of the famous Arc de triomphe. The capsules you can see in the image are two of the four elevators people can take to go to top of this building. People who have visited la Défense will agree with me that everything in this place looks very futuristic. I will be posting some other pictures of it too, so if you want to see more, be sure to check back later !

Technical stuff : the image was practically shot like this (personalized monochrome settings on my camera), I only adjusted the brightness of the picture with +0,17. The only program used for this was Digital Photo Professional from Canon (the standard tool that comes with the camera). The border was made by Bordermaker (as usual).

In regard to the comments made by “Kelvin” and “ndiginiz” on the previous image : thanks – I’m considering to make an update to the picture later on, but for the moment I have a lack off spare time… :-(
