Photographer's Note

This is a sculpture of Jeanne d'Arc or Joan of Arc. It is located on the rue de Rivoli just across the street from the Louvre.

I chose this perspective because I wanted her to seem powerful and above the viewer. So they were forced to look up to her. I also wanted to have the angle of her flag pole mimick the line of the rooftop. I tried to compose the shot so it filled the frame yet let plenty of negative space.

Postprocessing: Adjustment of levels
