Place de la Madeleine - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT

Panorama taken from the Place de la Madeleine showing the front of the Eglise de la Madeleine, the church that dominates the square. This is a very busy junction, and it took quite a while to capture the pictures needed for the panorama without everything being obscured by cars. One of the advantages of shooting panoramic images by taking a series of photographs and then stitching them together afterwards is that you can wait for the spaces in the traffic for each individual shot.

This panorama shows the front of the La Madeleine church (L'église de St-Marie-Madeleine), which dominates the Place de la Madeleine in Paris. Place de la Madeleine is just to the north of the Place de la Concorde and close to the Opéra Garnier and the Place Vendôme. As shown in this panorama, the church looks like a Roman temple, surrounded by 52 Corinthian Columns, each 20m high. The design was based on the Maison Carrée at Nîmes. There is another panorama from inside La Madeleine showing the church interior.
