Take-Out Photo : Foregrounds

This month at Take-Out Photo, Marc is focusing on the different effects the foreground of a picture can have on the overall image.

Here are some of my recent pics that I thought were somewhat appropriate for the topic.

Front gate of Versailles looking in towards the chateau.

The Stravinsky fountain and the St-Merri Cathedral

In the Parc Monceau

I wasn't too sure about this last one... but I figured it's basically ALL foreground, so... go big or go home, right? ;)

It's a picture of the staircase leading from the main garden entrance at Versailles down to the Orangerie. I just like the fact that it looks like a big staircase to nowhere.

I love your picture of Parc Monceau. It looks like a beautiful place.

Great pics! The first two are my favorites because I love ironwork and I like how you juxtaposed the modern fountain with its neighboring cathedral.

I can see that I need to return to Paris to see that fountain!
