La Defense – World of Lights

La Defense - World of Lights
To make this photo was the main reason for my trip to Paris. About one year ago I saw this unbelievable photo from Thomas Birke. It just made "Click" and I knew: I have to make a photo from this spot. I also found some other photos from there and I watched them again and again, because I wanted to do a better shot. I don't know if it worked, but I am satisfied with the result. I started to make photos around 6 p.m. and I had to wait about one hour until the perfect moment in the blue hour around 7 p.m. This photo shows everything, whats so fascinating about La Defense. Lights, fantastic architecture and different levels. The traffic level is under the ground and you only see this level from some spots. This spot is may be the most interesting. This place shows also the transition from the business district La Defense to the suburb Nanterre on the left side in the background. The contrast between architecture style and also color temperature is very interesting.
Some technical details: Canon 5D Mark II – Canon EF 17-40 f/4 L USM ISO 100 - f/11 - 25 sec. To get such a wide angle of view I made six 17mm portrait shots and stitched them together. To get to this point is very easy, its only a few minutes away from La Defense Metro and RER Station. On the following photo you can see the stairs where I made the photo.
