This picture probably needs little explanation, other than the Eiffel Tour was lit up prior to the 14th July Bastille Day fireworks.
To answer those who wish to know where the picture was taken from - it is the top of Tour Montparnasse.

Belle photo mais prise d'ou?
hélicoptère? Tour montparnasse?
Belle exposition néanmoins

Spectacular photo noctura; it is certain, does not need many explanations, but to me also I would like to know from where you have shot it.

I do know the Eiffel tower, under many angles (by the way, I have created a theme in which your pic will go directly ! ;-)
But this pic really surprised me. I cannot remember, but I don't think that anybody ever posted one pic taken from la Tour Montparnasse. It's very impressive, all the more because this is not the usual lighting.
I like it David, very well done !

Quelle teinte surprenante de la dame de fer !!! Comment ca se fait ? La photo est impressionnante, est ce la foule qu'on voit au pied de la Tour ? Ca aurait ete bien si tu avais pris la meme mais un peu plus tard dans la soiree.

A great picture!! Fantastic colours and view at the Eiffel Tower! The offices in the background are great as well!
Very well done! :-D

C'est vraiment la plus belle photo de la tour eiffel que j'ai vu jusqu'a maintenant.
Ça risque d'être difficile à battre.
Le ciel semble vraiment clair?? Est-ce que la photo a été prise immédiatement après le couché du soleil?

A really great photo with lots of sharpness. I never knew that Paris also has a more general business skyline, as all I ever see in photos is the famous landmarks. Maybe I should revisit now that I am old enough to appreciate its beauty. Thanks for sharing.

I almost missed this excellent photo !
I like it very much for its great clarity and sharpness, certainly a benefit of using your impressive weaponry, I like too how the tower in red detaches over the background, and how well rendeered this red color is. Shooting time is good too, and it seems the multitude has already gathered to enjoy the fireworks. Congratulations for this outstanding achievement !
Have a nice day,

Great picture and a good POV.
Did you take it behind the window or where you standing outside the Tour Montparnasse?

Magnique vue sur la dame de fer. Le cadre, l'endroit, le moment, enfin tout est judicieusement choisis.
Un beau travail

This for me is the most amazing image of the Eiffel Tower I have ever seen, superb composition, colour and light. The skyline in the background is perfect, everything about this image is for me a big WOW! Thanks indeed for sharing this.
Have a good weekend
