Flight Over The Arc de Triomphe

Piece description from the artist

Photography is often perceived as a true-to-life medium, but for this piece, I used a little Photoshop magic to create something straight from my imagination. I photographed the main image of The Arc de Triomphe while on a trip to Paris in 2017, and then I shot the hot air balloons a few months later at a festival back home. It took many hours of work to make it look as realistic as possible. I love the whimsical vibe that the balloons add to the piece!
