Mystical looking picture.

catsynth said...

That is a very pretty image, with the soft "impressionism" filtering. But I also like the statue itself. She has a certain calmness and dignity.

Thanks..

Catsynth, I was struck by this statue the first time I went to Pere Lachaise. I had to revisit it when here this year.

Lovely dappled sunlight, it makes for such a soft subject.

Thanks everyone. I did some very slight adjustment. I added a little Gaussian Blur but nothing else

Anna, you are too kind!

Stephanie, It is one of my favourite places in Paris
