    I came upon this almost by chance. Just walking around Paris for those few extra shots before going back to the hotel. It was a very difficult image for me to get in the end. The original exposures had a overblown sky or the building was to dark. After allot of tweaking I got this. Still not 100% happy with it.

    i like it, great comp and really nice sky, but why did you make the frame a anamorphic letter box?

    Ahh that was framed for my widescreen monitor to fill the screen. I have since changed my ways and frame in a different style. Maybe I should update this one?

    Personally, i think that pyramid ruined the lourve. That aside, it's a very nice photo. The tones are great and the symmetry is outstanding.

    Incredible photo, the sky helped you out loads. And contrary to MP, I like the pyramid...one of the few bits of modern architecture I like ;)

    This is the pic in your flickr site that really jumped into my eyes, that is why I said "do post that one", and I was so right: it looks even better this large and I don't mind the frame, either, though if you mind it today, you might want to show us the updated version, too?
    I can see why this was a very difficult exposure, but in the end you did really well and brought out both detail in the sky plus detail in the old Louvre buildings, with the very modern - definitely different but quite interesting as a juxtaposition to the old - pyramid almost haloed by the bright spot in the sky.

    I really really like this photo!

    whoa this picture is great... maybe because I liked "Da Vinci Code" (both the book and the film) :D
