Beauty and the Beast and Paris

In honor of the new Beauty and the Beast movie trailer (which looks awesome by the way) I figured I’d post up one of my Beauty and the Beast related shots from the Flower & Garden Festival. For this particular shot I actually had the tripod fully extended on the edge of the fountain. I shot with the Nikon 70-200 2.8. I wanted to get a straight on shot like this but I didn’t really want the fountain in it but I did want all of the great background buildings and Eiffel tower. Even with the tripod on the ledge and fully extended I did get just a bit of the fountain water spraying into the frame. I also had to make a compromise and really push Belle and the Beast to the bottom edge of the frame but I think it ultimately works for this shot because of how the background fills the frame vertically.
