Photographer's Note

Les Invalides in Paris, France consists of a complex of buildings in the 7th arrondissement containing museums and monuments, all relating to France's military history, as well as a hospital and a retirement home for war veterans, the building's original purpose. It is also the burial site for some of France's war heroes. What is the most impressive in this place is the golden dome, which is 107 meters high. More details can be found on wikipedia.

I wanted to set the statue in the foreground to see what would happen...

I thought that the black and white mode would increase the strength (if there is) of the composition. I converted the color picture in black and white by considering the L layer of the Lab mode. I tuned the levels, removed the noise, sharpened the picture. The colored version of the picture is in the workshop section.
