Photographer's Note

This is a photo I took today in a boutique on the Champs-Elysée. It is actually a collection of several boutiques in one long hallway. It has these amazing ceilings with all sorts of different lighting fixtures all around. In France, most stores are not open on Sundays, due to a national law. Certain stores which pay high taxes do, however stay open Sundays. The Virgin Mega Store on the Champs-Elysée was one of the first to go through all of the procedures in order to stay open on Sunday. Nowadays several of the businesses along this largest avenue in Paris are open on Sundays as well. Also the law does not apply to entertainment such as cinemas or restaurants.

Postprocessing: I used the distort tool to pull the whitish window bording in the lower left corner farther down. I was unable to achieve the proper positioning with my camera and still include the light post naturally. Also I adjusted the levels, raising the white point.
