Parisian Lamp

Canon EOS 5D MkII, EF 16-35 f/2.8L @ 28mm, f/9.0, ISO 200

This is another picture from that Gardens in La Jolla. While I was taking this shot, I noticed the lamp and I thought it was made out of marble or something of that sort so it would be a great HDR opportunity with all that extra texture. After taking my initial set of brackets I got closer to the lamp & composed for it with a slightly low point of view, to give it that standing huge feel, specially with a wide angle lens! To my disappointment it wasn’t made out of marble but some cheap plastic, can you tell?

The name? for some reason those lamps reminded me of Paris and all the Art Nouveau lamps on its streets like this one. Not quite the same in California now is it? 🙂
