Picture of the day !

I'm still working on the postprocessing of my pictures taken in South West of France. I needed to go outside and came to my favorite local spot for birds in the very damp and warm late afternoon. So, hereunder, the shot of the day:

The light was rather low after 7 PM . Only three shots of the burst were sharp. Of course, you can have a look at the two others.

Flower power ;)

Today, the sky is overcast. This is the right weather for flower photography, because there is no shadow. So I went to the botanic garden of Bagatelle in Paris.
This picture could be my best shot of the day.

Birds ...

Summer is coming on Northern France eventually ! This is time for me to enjoy the long day time and the nice evening nights. Some days ago, when it was still cold and rainy, I spent some time watching videos about photography and I saw this one, more than interesting, about bird photography.
I decided to apply the rules given by this professional photographer. Do you know what ? It works !

Some examples :

Blue hour in Paris

Few shots taken yesterday in Paris at the blue hour, especially long those days.

I decided to try the new panorama merging feature of the last Lightroom release. During my trip in Provence, I took eight or nine shots of the mountain nicely lit by the evening sun. My camera was handheld and I tried  to rotate it properly to avoid parallax issues, even if at that distance from the object the risk is rather low. I used manuel settings to keep the same exposure and was confident in the automatic white balance to be consistent during the shots. Then I just used the very simple feature of Lightroom and postprocessed the entire image as usual. The original image size is larger than 75 MP ! Of course, here you get only a small JPEG export (1200 px wide).
