They have erected a replica of the Eiffel tower on the banks of the Seine river, roughtly 8 meters high. It is made of metallic chairs well organised in a frame.
But this was not the only interest for me, I would like to have a person, and cherry on the cake, she was dressed in red and seated at the right position.
With my zoom at the longest range, I could have her portrait and a second later, zooming back a general view (WS). Then moving on the street, I was able to have the 2 Eiffel towers on one image (WS)

Would not have known this, a wonderful picture of an amazing structure and great artistic work both on the replica and photo. The contrasting colours and subtle light transform this to a very special but that fig is a real gem, an icing on the roll to the whole capture. A wonderful work, Congrats

This is an amusing copy of the Eiffel Tower and a smart and attractive composition. It's a challenge to show a different view of that famous monument, but even in the ws showing them both you manage to create something original.

Salut, hola Clodo
I realize you also were at Paris during Paris Plages, this is a creative capture, only reading the note I realize there are all chairs
Good WS , mostly the one with the two towers
Of course eye catching color contrast
Merci, bon travail

so is this a new subject? has it been there long? I'm getting the feeling its rather new because i'm sure it would have shown up on TE :)
thanks so much for the Ws photos, they're pretty cool looking aswell.
and i hate to admit it, but yes, the person does benefit the scene :)
enjoy your Sunday

hello Claude, Fantastic photo with this red small Eiffel Tower. And the girl is really a cherry on the cake, even in the same colour :). You were lucky that she was sitting there. Perfect realization.

Three wonderful pictures of the "Tour Eiffel"!
I love your main picture - I'm wondering how long you had to wait before that "lady in red" appeared in just the right place for you to be able to frame her between the "legs" of the model tower. Or was she sitting there when you arrived? However it happened, it happened perfectly and you have caught this pretty young lady in exactly the right position for her to be framed exactly right!
Your first workshop picture shows us the details of this interesting "model" tower and your second workshop image is wonderful - the "model" and the "real" towers shown together from the perfect viewpoint.

This is really great, you are a lucky man to have this lady in the frame, bravo

Wow - well done for photographing a lady in red positioned in such a suitable place. The tight framing and symmetry makes for an artistic and graphic shot. I like this very much indeed.
Kind Regards, Ann

Une tour Eiffel très créative que tu as bien exploité photographiquement avec la présence de la femme en rouge. Les deux WS sont sympas également.

Hi again Claude
I love this red Eiffel tower replica. The girl is perfectly placed and her top matches the colour of her surroundings. Well spotted!
SnapRJW (31629) 2014-07-28 4:48
Hello Claude - This is such a cool shot. I am inclined to believe that you paid the young lady to position herself so and to wear a red T-shirt... perfect colour coordination and positioning. I love the sculpture and the way you present it here bringing in the human interest so seamlessly.

Interesting creation with chairs and even more interesting compo with the 'red lady' framed by the red. Thanks to both your WSs...they help us understand the 'wider' picture. Lovely!

It is really a beautiful image and an excellent idea to capture the lady at the centre. Superb composition, well colour balance and clarity.
MOST IMPRESSIVE SHOT.
have a nice day

Aren't you the lucky one? That's serendipity for you. Great framing, great sense of the comic, great colour harmony. Great photograph. The workshops are interesting, but I feel you've chosen the best to present.
