Paris Opera House II by vmulligan Paris Opera House II by vmulligan
Here's another shot from inside the Palais Garnier (the "Paris Opera House" featured in Phantom of the Opera). I snapped this hand-held on November 7th, 2008 with a Canon Rebel XTi (1/8 second, f/5.6, ISO 800).

I have written a piece on The Phantom of the Opera for Fanboy Comics' (www.fanboycomics.net) Halloween series and would love to use this photo (it's amazingly gorgeous and perfect for the topic of my piece) as illustration if you would allow it. I understand completely if you prefer to keep it private, but if you are open to it, let me know how you would like to be credited, and I will make it happen.  There are so many lovely photos online, but I can't in good conscience steal someone's photo.

It's funny, but those people standing there nonchalantly actually help me seeing how large these chandleliers are.

That's true -- they do help to establish the scale. I tend not to photograph people much, so I guess my brain just kind of automatically said, "Get out of my way, uninteresting things in the way of the beautiful architecture!" I had considered shopping them out. :P

Good god, how are you planning on shopping them out? Doesn't that mean you will create an empty hole in the picture and need to fill it up again with something else?
*Obviously not very skilled with photoshop*

Nah, you should leave them there. They should be proud.
If I would be there I would probably casually show up in every picture you take xD

It'd be a bit of work, since the background is busy and cluttered, but it's possible to lift background elements and paint out a person. Photoshop has some pretty good tools for that (see the work I did on my photo, "Dancer": [link] ). But yeah, it's probably not worth it here, and as you say, they help establish the scale of the room.

It doesn't really matter, the picture looks fine like this. But it's nice to know you put great effort into your photo's.
:)

The people would pose a problem if they would be very close to the camera, but since they are not, it looks fine this way.
