Orsay Museum Long Exposure and a touch of Color Efex Pro
yesterday I was with my kids visiting the Orsay Museum in Paris, shame on me I had never been inside.
there was a lot of persons in and outside of the Museum. The sky started to be interesting but I don't like to take photos when there is tourists on my photos. So I took out an ND 1000 filter, put my camera on a tripod at F 18 with a 180 second of exposure (3 minutes), all the tourist were gone !
I also like a lot the effect that it does to the clouds.
Retouched in Lightroom 4 and then I used a couple of filters of Color Efex Pro. I think I will do my next podcast on how I retouched that photo.
I have done a lot of long exposure, but always around 60 second range, then I realized that most of the master on the subject, would do 3 minutres average. This is my first try at that long, I like it :-)
Also wanted to make a color version for once and not black and white.
