Exploring the Cathedral
No tripods allowed. I think maybe it said this in French. Or English. I can't remember because I ignored it. How are you supposed to get a decent photo inside Notre Dame without a tripod?
I spent this weekend processing a bunch of photos from France, and this is one that took quite a while. People often ask me, 'How long do you work on your photos?" My answer is always a bit strange, since any time-allotment will not seem correct. The thing is... I've processed so many photos over the years -- I've gotten very fast at it. I've got macros, keyboard shortcuts, etc etc. I think I might look like a Korean Starcraft player... I slow it down a lot for the tutorial and stuff. But, anyway, having said that, my answer is "anywhere from 15 minutes to two hours". This shot in particular took a little over an hour. It was a hard one... I had to take a few breaks and refill the green tea a few times to work out some issues with it.
