Photographer's Note

Here’s a view of the Corcovado on the heights of Rio de Janeiro.

This is the original framing : I wanted something original and try to avoid the shoot the people packing around this monument so I standed at the very feet of the Corcovado and tried to get the whole monument. Let's mention that reaching the top of the hill is a great thing : you need to take a small train going through a real rain forest within the city. It's a real pleasure to hear birds a few other animals...

Later on, I had fun with grey-scaling the picture and adding a light source. After some toughts, I found it not so bad. Let me know what you think.

But if you prefer something more academic, I suggest you to have a look here.
