Standing at the Feets of Giants

Posted on Mar 27, 2011 in Architecture

After a long walk around the city, we stop just under the Eiffel tower in Paris, France. It was a rainy day and unfortunately there was water drop on my lense. Symmetrical and industrial point of view of this famous construction.

Quiet summer night

It’s was a warm evening, alone at home. Watching the view from my place, just thinking and dreaming then I decide to take picture from my balcony. Tripod, a beer and patience.

Birds of sunset

Posted on Feb 7, 2010 in Landscape

Sunset from my favorite spot, the Dorigny shore in Lausanne, Switzerland. This my first picture with my new neutral density filter. In this HDR composition you can see the three expositions throught the birds movement. This “three birds” effect give movement on this static landscape picture.

Touch the clouds from the top

Imagine a place where the only reason to go is the food. I was there, it’s call Chiboz and it’s in Switzerland after 20 minutes driving one a tight road in the mountains you arrive in a cosy place to eat. In front of the restaurant I shot this landscape and for the first time I use my polarizator filter. No saturation added in the HDR processing. The food was great.

Fix the sky a little

The lake Léman shot from St-Sulpice, Switzerland. The place on the left side of the picture is the city of Lausanne. I like the differents types of clouds during this sunny day.

Back to the roots

Posted on Oct 10, 2009 in Close Up

It’s the close up of the lonely Tree of Ta Prohm, Anghkor, Cambodgia. It’s not his real name, but it’s fit well. In this temple the nature take his right and everything is invaded by roots or trees.

Fisher’s Town

Posted on Oct 5, 2009 in Landscape

Taken during my trip in Asia, it’s a fisher’s town neart Siem Reap Cambodgia. I tried to work on the colour of the boats and the grain for this 3 exposures HDR shot.

Another shadowed green pond

Posted on Sep 21, 2009 in Landscape

In the same serie than a few of my recents pictures, I continue to work on water, shadow and green scenery. This time with this nice weather, I’ve got a cool reflect that I doesn’t except. Shoot in Saint-Blaise, Neuchâtel, Switzerland.

Green plant in a shadowed pond

Posted on Sep 2, 2009 in Landscape

Believe it or not, this picture has been taken in the Lausanne cemetery not very far from the place where the picture called End of a summer day has been shot.

At first, I planned to shot an HDR based on 3 RAW. Afer a few minutes on the spot I noticed that the water is moving, so 3 RAW can’t make it. So I use the one RAW technic. In this picture, I concentrate my attention on the green plant which is in the shadow. I’m pretty happy with the result.

Clouds and Leman Lake

Posted on Jun 1, 2009 in Landscape

Taken from the top of the Sauvabelin Tower (see previous picture) in Lausanne, Switzerland. You can see the roof of the Lausanne Cathedral in the left part of the picture. Colors and levels are modified through the HDR process.

Built of glass

The Provence Center Building in Lausanne, Switzerland. My first try with my brand new wide angle Sigma 10-20 and another HDR experience.

The “Market Place” of Neuchâtel

Posted on Feb 14, 2009 in Urban

Based on one RAW picture this is another HDR experience. This place is in the middle of the town of Neuchâtel, Switzerland.

With the “one raw technic”, I don’t have to care about the “ghost effect” that you see sometimes in HDR picture. For the technical viewers, the exposure time in the EXIF data is wrong because of the image manipulation.
