Le Moulin Rouge, Paris

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 10 January 2009 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

Walking uphill toward the Moulin Rouge.

I pushed the contrast and colour in this one to try and give a slightly hard big-city feel to it whilst hopefully not losing too much of the charm of this part of Paris which, despite it's red-light area reputation, is still there under the surface if you half-close your eyesa and let your mind wander a little.

Superbe cliché. Je connais le coin, il est très difficile de faire une belle photo du Moulin Rouge. Bravo pour le cadrage et la composition. Un bon exemple.

I like how you pushed the color. It actually has that Moulin Rouge feel.
