Grand Foyer Opera Garnier Paris

Grand Foyer Opera Garnier Paris
The Shot

This was my third location of my first full day in Paris. With heavy rain starting in the morning and continuing in the afternoon an inside destination was required. This is the Magnificent Foyer of the Garnier Opera House. The décor includes large amount of gold. Usually the room is full of Tourists and Tour groups. I was there as closing time came and an Official came round to tell everybody to head for the exits. When everybody was clear I got some quick shots

As usual in this sort of building Tripods are not allowed, The picture was taken handheld at ISO 1600 for a fast enough shutter speed. Taken with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom at 10mm. 3 raw images 2EV spacing for HDR. Opened in Photoshop first and each image noise reduced with Noiseware Pro and saved as tiffs.

The HDR was created using Photmatix and additional enhancements in Topaz adjust and adjustment layers in Photoshop.

Full details of the processing together with before and after images are on my brand new Blog
