    Play snap - Paris

    I often see photographs and know I've got one just like it. For example Owl close up, Peacock strutting and of course land marks. Just to confirm my suspicions the following are two snaps taken in Paris and I wonder if you could show me your closest equivalent by adding it to this thread. How many can we get? If you want a prize for the closest match you will need to ask a moderator - don't look at me.

    Paul here is one of mine taken several years ago on a 2MP Canon compact. I spruced it up a bit in PS but I tell you - I didn't realise how hopeless a photographer I was in those days.

    To win the top prize (bearing in mind there aren't any) you need to tell us how you found it and what your filing system is. Mine are only snap shots as well - quantity more important than quality (nothing wrong with yours) and partly a test of image retrieval.

    I got there a bit late; had to take the back stalls; all the Kiwis and people with Nikons and twenty six lenses had arrived early whilst I was having lunch and enjoying a second bottle of Rosť.

    Nice Church.

    My Filing System is chronolgical and key words.

    DATE - IMAGE NUMBER(including camera ID) - Key WORDS

    eg: 2012_02_01_5D596559_Paris_Notre_Dame_Cathedral


    I downsized this and saved for web posting. Its ID is simple: 596559v01web ('v01' = indicating it is the original PP version, which I have loaded to the web).

    What's your filing system?

    Hi Bill, my system used to be in folders with reference to Photographs ID - manual for scanned images based on physical storage system of film and camera's file name range for digital. The folders that had photographs of specific events or places had a reminder included in the folder name e.g. P506-512 Queensland where P=positive film rolls 506 to 512.

    I now organise all my images with Lightroom 4 in date order with plenty of tags and backup when I start to get edgy which relates to how many new photographs and the importance of them. I worry far less about backing up edits than the original RAW file.

    Seems a bit strange that no one in the northern hemisphere has any similar photographs.

    Ed maybe you should buy a new tripod. Like to see it a bit larger as it looks like a nice photo.


    Manfred I knew you could do it. Great shot - you must stay latter than me.

    There must be some takers for the other shot.

    Not the tripod. Ed was laying down on the job!

    Manfred must have had three bottles of Rose for lunch and got there latter than both of us!
    It is a very nice shot indeed. Was it taken with just the last bit of sunlight remaining in the sky?

    We were at Notre Dame to attend an evening concert (Beethoven's Missa Solemnis), and yes, the sun had pretty well gone down and the lights illuminating the building had been turned on. The people in the foreground are part of the line entering the church.

    Thanks for the info.
    Again - it is a very pretty photo. Good shot.
    I bet the music was great too - nice sound inside / good delay: when I was there (the second day) there was a Choir of Nuns (I think they were just practicing) - Plainsong - the sound was amazing.

    Not sure about the tripod ref. Was it because my image was lying down? This was the first time I've posted an image and I just tried to edit the post to enlarge the image and ended up deleting it instead. :-(

    I do have an excellent CF tripod, but I have a rule I follow. Unless I'm travelling by car, I don't try to take "great" pictures on a vacation trip. When travelling by air or rail as a tourist I travel light, just take "snapshots" and hope one or two are good enough to hang on the wall. In Paris I was using a Canon 50D with a 35mm F2 as a walking-around lens.

    I'll try again to post larger images.

    Excellent - great to see another view of my second image.

    The reference to the tripod was the rotation of the photo and being fundamentally polite I did not want to suggest you had consumed too much French wine so early in the day.

    haha.

    Kiwis are very polite, not crass like strayl-yans.

    I like Ed’s Glass Pyramid too - it looks a cold day.

    Don't suppose there is any chance of you putting that in writing? You know an affidavit or something similar.

    I can't even spell 'after-david' let alone know what it is.

    I have only just learned to spell 'subpoena' and for years I thought that was the technical name for the head, in a submarine.
