zdjecie pokazujace znakomicie jak swiatlo potrafi zmienic dana scene.Mimo iz ta piramida jest czestym tematem fotografii,to w twoim wydaniu wyglada wyjatkowo.
Podoba mi sie twoj pomysl kadru pod swiatlo i to jak metalowo-szklana konstrukcja piramidy rozprasza swiatlo sloneczne.Super!
Do tego kolorystyka zdjecia-przede wszystkim pierwszy plan z tak ladnie oddanym kolorem wody(no i te odbicia w jej powierzchni-piekne!)

Light shining through the pyramid gives extra strength to this view. Intense blue reflection on wet stones looks really good. Architect has done really good job over there on combining classic architecture with modern.

A superb night time capture of the Louvre pyramid, which seems to come alive under the rays of the setting sun. The composition is well thought out and takes full advantage of the graphical lines offered by the architecture. Ideally exposed with excellent colours and clarity.

what an amazing crystalline effect all over the image, the light is superb. Excellent compo and great execution!
Still I would remove that pink lens flare spot on the water:)
Thanks and best wishes!

An iconic structure, but a completely new take on it to my eyes, a really beautiful composition and a stroke of artistic genius with the sun positioned like this, highlighting the effect of the pyramid. Wonderful deep blue tones too. Excellent image, love this one!
All the best

Cette pyramide à beaucoup fait parler d'elle à son installation dans la cour du Louvre et je crois que la conversation n'est pas encore terminée à son sujet.Pourtant , c'est tellement un beau sujet photographique, comme tu nous le prouve dans cette belle composition.

Difficulties getting online - so cutting and pasting this - BUT just want to say - "I like this shot!" Before I lose my connection yet again.

This is one of many shots of this pyramid. The BEST I´ve seen here on TE!
Very, very attractive, brilliant reflections.

To jest jedna z rzeczy, która widziałem i nie sfotografowałem :(((
świetnie ujęłaś, bardzo nastrojowe zdjęcie przez światło y kolorystykę
Romano46 (15554) 2013-10-08 10:19
a giudicare da queste prime foto su Parigi che ci proponi devo pensare il viaggio è stato ricco di soddisfazioni e ti ha permesso di riprendere bei soggetti nella migliore delle maniere.
Dopo quella eccezionale della fontana anche questa appare notevole per composizione, alla quale ha contribuito una buona dose di inventiva, per nitidezza ed anche per colori che hai saputo valorizzare al meglio.
Ciao e buona serata

what a amazing photo of the Louvre Pyramid so famous that appear in movies and books, including the "Da Vinci Code". I dream to visit there someday to take photos of it. That time was when you took this photo, I think it could be hard take photos of this place with nobody there.
rbassin (15044) 2013-10-08 13:24
une très belle photo de la Pyramide de verre, un bon point de vue qui crée de très bons effets de miroitement.

Magiczna piramida o zachodzie s³oñca...
Super kadr i kolory.
Interesujace odbiia robia klimat tej kompozycji.
carlo62 (23658) 2013-10-08 14:40
la tanto criticata piramide è diventata un simbolo per il Louvre, in modo minore, ma come fu per la Tour Eiffel, ormai sono segnali di riconoscimento indelebili.
Molto bella la foto, il sole che attraversa i vetri e lo splendido riflesso, sono due elementi bellissimi.
Alco (6054) 2013-10-08 19:38
Nice shot of the pyramid with beautiful reflections in the water.Good management of the light with the sun shining across the windows.Sharp details.Very well done.
Have a nice day.

chyba telepatia, bo pomyslalam o Tobie ze dawno nie odwiedzilam twojej galerii i starcilam bardzo duzo bo przybylo duzo przepieknych zdjec. Przepiekna kompozycja piramidy. Wspaniale ja uchwycilas w odbijajacym sie swietle i to odbicie jej robi wspaniale wrazenie. Bedac tam nie zrobila na mnie takiego wrazenia jak to twoje piekne zdjecie. Przekazujesz ja niesamowicie pieknie. Moje gratulacje. Poprzednie zdjecia sa rownie piekne jak i to zdjecie. Gratulacje. Dwadziesia komentarzy to troszke za malo. Bardzo mi sie podoba.

Light and reflections add atmosphere to this attractively composed shot Gosia. The structure of the pyramid itself is beautifully captured with individual interpretation and creative flair. Warm regards Rosemary
jjcordier (70505) 2013-10-08 22:40
Jolie capture de la pyramide avec un bel effet lumineux et un intéressant reflet.
ourania (22722) 2013-10-09 14:42
after you found an excellent angle and ensured the best use of the light, you recieved a lovely little gift from the sky, a fine, dynamic cloud that makes your picture unique and unrepeatable. I love the dynamism and graphism of the compostion, the effective lighting and contrasts, the substancial colours, the transparency and the reflections. Skillful and fascinating work, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Ładnie wpisana piramidka z Luwru w pionowy kadr. Ciepłe swiatło tworzy tu wyjatkowy klimat. Bardzo przyjemna w odbiorze praca
ChrisJ (93406) 2013-10-11 14:50
A good capture of this famous glass pyramid in Paris with excellent sharpness, color, saturation and framing. I like the symmetrical reflection in the wet concrete and the decision to shield the sun using the structure was a good one as it filters the harsh light. Tfs!
abmdsudi (36288) 2013-10-12 7:53
Nicely captured, so this is one of the other real pyramid! That is well composed to get the whole effect in. Very good indeed, looks good lit up at late afternoon light and the gorgeous exposure you managed, the blues and silver work together brilliantly and topped off by those wonderful reflections. Impressive work. Congrats
bayno (18340) 2013-10-12 8:11
Excellent work Gosia, you wait for a good light to shot, and the backlight is very well managed, two style of archtecture and a very good compo, wonderful blue tones...
have a good WE...
delpeoples (50641) 2013-10-12 17:01
Witaj dear Gosia
I always get excited when I open your gallery as I know that what I will see will be a marvel. As here. I love this composition, it's original, superbly executed and so exquisitely beautiful. Stunning light management here, the balance is incredible.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely weekend
NorthernLight (1209) 2013-10-13 2:39
so far I've never been there, but have seen several pictures of this pyramid. I think yours is by far the best of all.
Wonderful colors, a slightly unusual perspective and a great play of light, shadows and reflections make this image a pleasure for the eyes.
Have a nice Sunday
ikeharel (48274) 2013-10-13 6:01
A marvelous effect with the sun behind the famous Pyramid.
Light and clarity well collected, digonal line converged with the museum edifice on left, while reflected on the foreground.
Have a nice week ahead,
COSTANTINO (47638) 2013-10-13 23:30
fantastic and impressive capture
with symmetry and imagination
first shot quality
fabbs99 (14403) 2013-10-13 23:47
Excellent shot Gosia,
The light, the colors, the neatness, the depth are exceptional.Very well done,TFS.
gervaso (9247) 2013-10-14 6:39
That's a place that we see a lot of pictures, but the perfect light management here makes this one really special! Excellent light and colors! Wonderful composition!
Royaldevon (24278) 2013-10-14 13:25
This is terrific!
I enjoyed just looking at it, noticing all its features and patterns of light and shadows.
I would have been proud to take this shot!!
My warm regards,
mjw364 (6490) 2013-10-15 2:43
Great composition and light. Love the colours too. The pink bokeh from lens flare is a little distracting but this is a very carefully composed image with great light.
Silvio1953 (111016) 2013-10-15 9:25
Ciao Gosia, fascinating blue hour, great view of fantastic architecture, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
SWEETFREEDOM (20804) 2013-10-19 5:10
beautiful composition and light management,
good p.o.v. and details.
tatadalou (4615) 2013-10-20 7:23
The Louvre framing is a great classical for who visit Paris, and it's not always easy to keep a picture of it without any visitor on it ! Original framing with a great backlight. I specially remark the nice blue colour of the foreground and the reflections of the Pyramid in this little basin. Well done !
Gigidusud (12193) 2013-10-20 9:17
Great capture of the Louvre Pyramid with nice reflections on the water, splendid light and good vertical format. Beautiful graphical shot!
jcpix (9244) 2013-10-20 11:58
It's so very difficult to come up with a new and original picture from a place and subject so often photographed...but this is a first for me, I love this viewpoint and arrangement of the pyramid! This smart composition has more of an abstract type of appeal, using only portions of the pyramid and fountains rather than its entirety. Not only that, but the the counter light has produced a different kind of atmosphere. The transition of colors in the reflected water are gorgeous. Compliments on a fresh take of this iconic attraction! Have a good week ahead. Take care.
adidas5nb (4003) 2013-10-20 23:38
stunning shot to show this famous place.great use of geometry.great effect.
eldancer1 (23039) 2013-10-22 9:13
I've seen several photos of Lourve Pyramid but I think this is the best in terms of composition and creativeness. I like the sun shinning through it. Good pov and sharp details. Very well done, tfs.
lpi (4857) 2013-10-23 2:33
La composition est superbe!
J'aime beaucoup le reflet et la lumière.
Très beau travail...Bravo :)
subhendu_bagchi (24367) 2013-10-25 7:26
hi Gosia, nice composition here. The glass made pyramid is looking superb with its reflection. Like also the back light condition. Great sharpness and depth. Rich colour tone is appreciable. Tfs.
jmdias (50333) 2014-03-30 2:00
very nice use of the lines, shapes and light here. the visual effect is beautiful and has a graphic mood. the image make me remember the day I visited the museum, so many things to see and I had only few hours. TFS.
i9l2y1m8a8t3 (4748) 2014-03-30 2:09
Wow! Definitely high class. You should sell this one to Louvre. Classy image, I love the deep tones and colors. Nice reflections and the Sunset just made it all perfect. Fantastic framing as always! Superb shot!
