Pyramide du Louvre, Paris.

By iancrowson  
Pyramide du Louvre, Paris
Commissioned by the President of France François Mitterrand in 1984, it was designed by the architect I. M. Pei

One of Paris's major tourist sites Pyramide du Louvre is a large glass and metal pyramid, surrounded by three smaller pyramids, in the main courtyard of the Louvre Palace. The large pyramid serves as the main entrance to the Louvre Museum.

Only the French could combine modern and classical architecture with such finesse. Top marks to the builders too, it all seems perfectly symmetrical.

V2 is BW conversion.
Thanks for looking
Ian

Asymmetrical but very nicely balanced - top left against bottom centre/right.
V2 seems that bit more luminous.

I like both them. Each picture has its own worth.

both versions are lovely.....I think V1 has more visual impact because of the colours of the light while V2 shows more impact on geometric forms Smile
I go for v1 it has more impact both good but v1 for me.

Like the details and evening lights on this, V2 just has the edge for me.

Two great Edited shots Ian, reminds me of our visit to the Louvre. Think colour works best on this structure, and love the goldern glow of the lighted structures of the old and the new, against the dark. Exposure is spot on of a magical image. James Smile
