3.54p.m. – Another observation of an earth trekker trying to get that special shot. You will also notice another camera hanging on his neck. This shot was taken at the Louvre and a group of art students were there doing sketches of the statues. The girl just behind the window can be seen busily sketching the statue. The photographer was outside the building and something must have caught his attention.
PP- cropped, adjusted levels and colour balance to reduce some yellow due to the sunlight.

hi aloysius, this is an interesting subject for the candid photography - how the photographers behave when trying to get a good access to the object, and what they can do in order to achieve this;
nice daily and candid shot, excellent sharpness;
best wishes, jerzy

A real double portrait. The beautiful classical sculpture of white marble and the art loving trekker. You were on the right time there to show us this nice scene.

This Trekearth two member is a must in the way you captured him. Excelent work so well done, seen and the moment you shot. Good light, enquadrement, surprise and a really surprising quality daily life report at Louvre in Paris.
Very very interesting and well done. Congratulations and Best Regards.

Hi Aloysius. Now that's my kind of trekker, in other words he doesn’t allow anything to get in his way of the shot. You captured him in a good pose as well. I guess the line to get inside was really bad? Well done and tfs Aloysius.

Good eye. I really like these sorts of unusual captures where the story is clear and concise. Love the colors but not crazy about the frame.

You've seen this man very well, bust taking a picture of this statue. I like his shadow too, also thanks to the fine lighting. Well seen and thanks for sharing!

Hi Aloysius, from this photo, it seems to be a good idea to carry aother lighter camera for some hard to reach angles. I like the colors in this photo.

Another TE member surpassing obstacles! Very good shot. I like the patience and concentration of the photographer to get the best photo. Good POV, excellent colors and light.

This is a remarkable shot. You have captured this at the decisive moment. The clarity is superb and I like the pose of the photographer and reflections. I believe that pouch hanging from his belt is a zoom lens, so he is very well equipped! Great capture.

Nice crop and good image quality.
Your frame plays well with the notion of layers of glass separating him from the sculpture.

You cannot always bring a ladder with you of course !
Tis is a clever man who understands that focus is hard behind a window...
I like this picture for the photographer's attitude and also and certainly for the very beautiful statue and background.
