[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In the district of Hôtel de Ville in Paris tonight ...
This photographer was not waware of the danger above his head.
Photography is definitely a risky activity.
And as for me who take pictures in the metro during the big strikes, I know what it is ... :)

Interesting shot..high contrast b&w was a good choice here. reminds me of an old movie TFS

Omg, poor photographers of the world! Gee... Being rewarded by a bite for the hard work... Unbelievable!
It's a funny moment you've caught, and a great subject for a b&w. Loving the wide angle effect that makes the real people so small and the building (with such monstrous and unthankful creatures as those people biting) massive. Wow!
Glad I wasn't there! :P

Great image, the walls are amazing, good choice for bw. I like the still photographer and the fact that the passer by has some movement blur.

Superbe! Encore et toujours.

hi sylvie,

history is written in paris at teh moment and you are close ... who is going to win? will there be a winner. like this shot in B&W, the blurred man left. your famous 1/8 sec again. thanks frans

Hi Sylvie,

I do feel that it is an interesting shot, but the little Ixus was surely on the edge (if not over it) of what it is able to do at night. I do understand the noise and the slight lack of sharpness with the settings. Pushing it to the egde surely. Maybe I would have cut off a part to the left, waited till the passer-by would have been a bit more to the right. Especially the top left is very noisy.
But despite all critique, I do like the point of view and it is challenging to push your equipment to the test with night shots like this handheld. And I admire that as well!


bonne ambiance princesse, le noir et blanc donne très bien pour ces photos. Ici c'est excellent.

very powerful black and white picture
like this one from the street
