Photographer's Note

At the Louvre, of course. Beneath the colonnades on one side of the cour de Napoleon is the Café Marly, where you can sit and enjoy a fabulously expensive coffee or hot chocolate and look at the glass pyramid or watch people taking photos of each other and lining up for entry to the museum.
I didn't dare use the flash for this as I knew it would end up lacking the light and shade that I wanted. It was taken with a compact, no manual settings, and came out roughly the way I wanted it. I have messed about with the 'windowed' background to give it a bit more definition, as it was rather washed out. I used the tone map and mid-tone shadow feature in PhotoImpact, resized, sharpened and reduced saturation and noise a little.
I like the atmosphere in this one; it shows someone really enjoying the whole experience of being there.
