Photographer's Note

Or should that be The Readiness Of The State!?

A little encounter with yet another of the no nonsense five men teams at combat readiness patrolling Paris over the Christmas/New Year period - I don't know if this is normal or if the city was on some sort of high alert but there were also motorised patrols too - always two jeeps and a police car. The foot patrols consisted of three soldiers and two policeman (the second one is out of sight here) - this was another quite sudden encounter in just about the darkest part of this street (on the Left Bank) - but playing with Levels, Brightness Contrast and Shadow/Highlight controls i have created an amount of light and contrast which just didn't exist - it was an incredibly muddy image - but of course even from RAW the image surface quality has broken down somewhat.
