October City Daily Photo Theme Day: Contrast


Contrast: it is sunny outside yet dark inside to prevent damage to the furnishings of the Petit Trianon castle in the palace grounds. The second photo is what you would have seen had you turned around. For more photos of and information about the Petit Trianon, click on the label below. The first day of the month is Theme Day for City Daily Photo bloggers, Click here to view thumbnails for all participants
------------------------
Contraste : il fait soleil dehors mais sombre à l'intérieur pour éviter que la lumière endommage le mobilier du Petit Trianon. La deuxième photo vous montre la vue dans l'autre sens. Pour voir plus de photos du Petit Trianon, cliquez sur le tag ci-dessous.

Its interesting how light can easily dissolve form.

Very clever interpretation of the theme! Well done!

Bob Crowe said...

Very well done example of the theme. I remember those "blackout" curtains. Still, you get enchanting shifts of light in the building.

Nice CONTRAST! Scrumptious interior!

Parfaitement aproprie pour Versailles!!

Lee Spangler said...

I can hear the stillness of the room and the feel the formal atmosphere. Certainly a different age- no rock and roll here!

Two beautiful shots but I particularly love the first. Fabulous and of course perfectly showing off Versailles.

B SQUARED said...

Nice choice. I had hoped to do something similar but had no luck finding anything close to what you used. Very nicely done.

I love the contrast photo! It's atmospheric not only with the lighting, but with the details. Thanks for showing us the room, too. It seems so exotic.

Jacob said...

This is a beautiful "contrast" photo, Ciel! Thanks for turning us around, too. What a gorgeous fireplace and mirror and bust...there are so many of those throughout the palace! We missed the Petit Trianon but definitely plan to go there next time!

Petrea said...

Fantastic. I love the insider's view you give us.

Carraol said...

Buck said...

It doesn't get any better than that for beautifully capturing contrast, Ciel. Superb!
