Milkyway Over The Louvre | Paris

This is a composite image and with it, I wanted to try something different and crazy.

I was doing some night photography at The Louvre but I was left disappointed because the buildings looked good but the sky was very boring.

It was a clear day and there were no clouds nor stars.

I decided to merge the milky way (the image was taken from a royalty free website) to my initial photograph to make it more interesting.

I started by merging the two images on photoshop, I then added a starburst effect to the lights.

I ended the post processing by doing some color balance, some overall sharpening, some cropping and finally some dodging and burning.

THE DEAD WEATHER ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM DODGE & BURN

SPECIAL DODGE & BURN VAULT PACKAGE AVAILABLE NOW

Way back in October 2013, The Dead Weather and Third Man Records announced an incredibly special 7” featuring “Open Up (That’s Enough)” b/w “Rough Detective” as part of Vault Package #18. These two tracks were a fierce battle cry heralding the announcement of a brand new Dead Weather album that was to be released in a revolutionary fashion. Teased out over the past year and a half via a series of 7” singles, the physical versions of which were ONLY available via The Vault (Third Man’s one-of-a-kind subscription mail-order service), the band promised this would culminate in a brand new album in 2015. The third Dead Weather LP would be a full length album comprised not only of the previously released 7” singles, but newly recorded, previously-unheard material. Today, The Dead Weather officially announce their new album Dodge & Burn.

will be released worldwide in September 2015 on Third Man Records and will feature eight brand new songs, along with the four previously released tracks remixed and remastered. Alison Mosshart,  Jack White, Dean Fertita and Jack Lawrence spent their rare and sporadic free moments over the past year recording together in Nashville. With the members of the band heavily involved in other projects, The Dead Weather will not be touring in support of the new album. Thankfully the thick and heavy will satisfy your urges for the dark magic that is The Dead Weather for a very long time.

The ONLY special, limited edition version of the new album will be released as Vault Package #25, which will arrive the same week as the standard album release in September. The Dodge & Burn Vault Package will include:

  • A limited edition Dodge & Burn LP on Inclement Weather vinyl (that is to say opaque yellow with black ‘debris’) housed in a soft-touch embossed sleeve featuring metallic ink and a Vault-exclusive alternate cover designed by Rob Jones, also featuring a limited edition bonus poster inside. 
  • The only physical version of the new Dead Weather 7” and single from Dodge & Burn on yellow vinyl with black debris.
  • A deck of custom Dead Weather playing cards designed by Silent Giants featuring the band members as the King, Queen, Jack and Joker. Previously released in limited numbers and now, due to popular demand, re-issued for the Vault only with new packaging artwork.

Subscriptions for Vault Package #25 are open until July 31st, visit http://thirdmanrecords.com/vault to sign up now! And if you need a reminder of what you’re in for, below are clips of the previously released tracks from the upcoming album.
