As time goes by

At first glance, this image has been mistaken for an iPhone shot (after the pattern of the special effects iPhone photos in my iPhonographie de Paris). The banks of the Seine River are shown just after sunset. Selective lamplight shines downward, illuminating the river and a couple in the distance embracing (it is Paris, after all!).

Look closer, and you will see that this is really a high resolution image. It was shot with my Nikon D800 with its 36MP sensor. I used my top-of-the-line Zeiss 35mm f/1.4 lens. The impressionism of the image comes from the handheld long exposure (4 seconds at f/11 and ISO 50) and deliberate up-and-down camera motion.
