Early Sunday Morning in the Marais by Bill Foy

About the Image(s)

This image was made a few weeks ago in the Marais section (4th Arrondissement) of Paris, France. I was out walking in a light rain that eventually became heavy enough to drive me indoors with soaked jeans and shoes. There were very few people walking around so it was pretty easy to get an unobstructed shot of this fruit/vegetable market. I thought it was unoccupied until I spotted the man holding a bag on the left side of the image when I pulled the image up on my large screen at home. I cropped a bit on the left and top, brightened it just a bit, removed some papers from the sidewalk and did an auto sharpening. Nikon D500, Tamron 18-270mm lens @ 60mm, f/8, 1/160, ISO-800, no flash, handheld, Auto WB, Exposure Program-Manual.

Bill, good use of your time when avoiding the rain. I love the possibility of lightening up the fruits even more. I see possibility of capturing great colors in the displays and bringing details out of the shadows. May not work but suggest you punch up the brightness or exposure some more.   Posted: 11/10/2019 10:58:15

I really think this is a magnificent image as shot. You've captured the mood and tranquility of pre-dawn Paris, but added the bicycle to remind us of the bustling city to come. Sharp as a tack, and wonderful color. As a pano I would say it is perfect. I have to add a crop for competitive entry though, just because!   Posted: 11/17/2019 12:45:27
