As usual, I went for a walk in the city. I entered the courtyard of Palais Royal. There were not so many people found in the garden. As it was in the late afternoon, they were perhaps taking a tea in one of the cafés. This late summer day, the light was filtering through the trees, and was creating a very pleasant atmosphere. The crispness of this photo is taken away; instead I preferred an image like one of Auguste Renoir, (Limoges, 1841 - Cagnes‑sur‑Mer, 1919). The lighting was changing continuously, from one moment to another.

The light management is perfect! The atmosphere - very romantic, notice the couple of young who are the protagonist.
Or maybe the protagonist here is the Nature, with its soft colors and very well represented here!
Nobuaki You know that I am a lover of the frames, so it is one that is missing here ....
Thank you and hope to see you soon!

Hello Dear friend Nobu,
You are lucky to be here at the time there are not so many people. Gives you a bit more freedom to do what you want. I like the atmosphere where the sun rays are stopped by the trees creating nice shades . There is a bit of romance here for the couple who have not noticed you or pretend not to notice you.I like the way the top half is filled with the green leaves and bottom half is dull with some dried leaves. Did you have a tea in one of the cafes ?
With warm regards,
