Preferred Perch

Preferred Perch

Zoomed shot of the Eiffel Tower, with a Pigeon enjoying the view – taken from the Basilique du Sacré -CÅ“ur (see earlier wider shot).

A fair bit of recovery went into bringing some contrast to the washed-out sky and skyline, monochrome (with tint), sharpness, cropping and curves/levels.

If you’re following along by RSS (or any other method), I’m preparing you in advance that I have a bunch of Eiffel/Louvre shots remaining from my trip to Paris earlier this year. I’ll be updating the site daily to try and get through them – hopefully, you’ll enjoy the shots, but the theme might get boring quick…
