Nothing to say here, except that I liked the flag fluttering on the left stating "Welcome" in English & French beside the famed Eiffel Tower - La Tour Eiffel.
Stitch of 2 pictures to get this Wide Effect

certainly classic monument but not so classic POV and good idea to include the banner in the left corner
It makes the shot
Have a nice day
All the best

This is a beautiful Point of View produced here.Dont think it's cliched, rather unique. Excellent colours and light. The stitching is very good without any glitch.Gives the feeling of wide angle.
gildasjan (38218) 2011-10-21 2:02
Un cadrage de la tour soigné pour ce point de vue original.Le format est harmonieusement rempli.

Always a pleasure to see the Eiffel Tower, specially when the photo quality is as excellent as it is here!
I really enjoyed the chosen pov, composition, colors and exposure!
TFS - congrats,

a magnificent POV and striking composition. Wonderful clarity, sharpness and texturing with immaculate light management make this a stand out image. Beautifully executed and presented. Bravo!
Have a peaceful weekend - regards Brian.

very good POV, very good management of light and shadows. The symmetry in the image adds well to the beauty of the architecture. Well done, best regards, F.

Taking on clichés, trying to create something new, is a real challenge. This is certainly not the usual tired picture of the world's possibly best known tower. Instead of the height of the tower we see the nice curves of the base of the construction with four openings showing the sky. The composition has great symmetry, which however is broken in a nice way by the red welcome-sign.
Nard (6913) 2011-10-21 10:37
With your amazing POV you've transformed a classical picture on something else, more creative and nice. Excellent idea and well done, the sharpness is perfect and I like the light on the tower.

Hi NAMSTE my dear Angshuman
Sorry for my late reply as so crazy-busy weekday.
Quite unusual style a you but of course remains marvelous. So attractive geometrical shot.
Well considered framework and perfect composition are as usual, as your trademark too.
Thanks for sharing with your finest work and have a good Saturday, Best regrads.
Takero from rainy Kyoto now
fabianoleite (9016) 2011-10-21 16:58
A view which is different from the classical. You explored very well the arches and shapes, and still we see at a glance that it is the famous tower. I mean, you show it from a different angle preservering well its distinguishing features, which was perspicacious. Great lights and perfect composition!
marcan44 (6223) 2011-10-22 0:40
finally a POV different from the usual postcards.
Good idea to stitch two images to obtain a wide pan.
Good job my friend!
Have a nice day
abmdsudi (26233) 2011-10-22 7:22
Always good to get a different view of a well-known subject like this, such a fresh take on something which has been photographed millions of times. Excellent stitching job and great framing no doubt. The angle shows the huge base (in relation to the massive height). Well, this is indeed a different pov which offers a different perspective. A creative angle and the wonderful colours of the sky show a huge amount of detail of the ironwork silhouette off to perfection, so intricate it almost looks like lace.
Cracking color, light and all well put together. Great shot, Congrats

Beautiful photographs and a fascinating idea.
Congratulations on the nice work.
A good display of colors and sharpness.

Excellente photo et point de vue tout a fait original.
Bon travail de fusion des 2 photos. L
Qualité parfaite et sujet esthétiquement très beau
mkamionka (24529) 2011-10-23 2:04
I always wanted to take a picture like that but never managed it. Mainly because I had a bad luck for weather in Paris. I like very much the geometry and the blue sky adds a nice touch here. The play of the light and the shadows is also very attractive,
Nicou (97679) 2011-10-23 2:09
fantastique captage et iamge quel graphsime quel effet cette tour cet armature de fer avec le coubes du pilier et ces tons doux, grnaidose compo.
Bravo et amitié
pablominto (53744) 2011-10-23 2:51
It is hard to find a new angle on one of the most photographed attractions in the world, but this one is on the more rare side hehehe!
Great lines that gives full credit to this very special architecture, sharp fine details...
arijit_ghosh86 (795) 2011-10-23 8:11
Sorry for late reaction Angshu da..Nice shot.
I want to see the full frame ..the gorgeous Eiffel tower in night :)
very good exposure..you really minimized the harsh 12:00 noon sun light here.
I want to do some sort of stitching..can you provide me any such tutorial..I have never tried it .
nobuikehonda (3846) 2011-10-23 8:40
Good evening dear Angshuman-san,
I have been admiring the view for some time now. You have discovered the most delicious part of The Eiffel Tower. It is the open space below created by the presence of the tower above. The quality of the image is absolutely first rate. The farming is very creative, by shifting the framing to slightly left to avoid the symmetrical and static view. I personally WELCOME the presence of the flag that you liked so much. Friendly presence of the flag is very effective focal point in the entire composition.
With my most friendly regards,
Have a very creative week ahead, Angshuman-san
batalay (32860) 2011-10-23 13:10
Hello Mr. B,
Indeed, it is a classic shot... with a fluttering flat. You had a clear day in September 2009. The stitch is imperceptible!
emka (58140) 2011-10-23 23:08
Hi Dear Angshu,
Yes, when in Paris I would probably make a lot of photos of The Eiffel tower, as all do, but then what to post the could be original (it is so in every famous place with me). And here it is such original photo. I like the view from below, showing the construction in an excellent way. perfect symmetry, nice colours. Fantastic presentation.
Haha, my granddaughter (3,5 years old) like travelling and would like to see Eiffel tower)
Graal (88886) 2011-10-24 0:14
nice presentation of Eiffel Tower in Paris. Good symmetry. Image well composed. Fine finaly effect. I like it.
Have a nice day.
papagolf21 (76561) 2011-10-24 0:21
Bonjour, cher ami Angshu,
La prise de vue est très réussie avec cet assemblage de deux photos.
Encore une démonstration d'un savoir-faire particulier qui est beaucoup apprécié sur le site.
geoant68 (3450) 2011-10-24 0:23
nice the chosen POV with the lower part of Eiffel tower with its arches to create a perfect texture.The light of the background contrast perfect with the dark foreground.
jhm (122444) 2011-10-24 5:16
Truly a wonderful detailled image about the most beautiful of the Eifeltower.
Sharpness and clarity are pleasant for look at.
Perfect taken with excellent colors and good presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
josepmarin (55027) 2011-10-24 5:35
Namaste my friend Angshuman,
the Eiffel Tower has a few very attractive shapes and offers its beautiful geometry to the photographers who can catch it, using some original visual angle, different from the classic framings.
This one is the case of your composition, which you have centred on the base of the tower by means of a stitch of two photos, which gives it a wide sight and a strong graphical effect.
I like the light, the warm tonalities and the great sharpness of the image.
It's a beautiful work.
isabela_sor (47265) 2011-10-24 7:17
What an angle!!!!!
excellent POV, my dear
wish i can have a pic like this in my gallery
all the best
Fis2 (73100) 2011-10-24 10:37
Interesting POV and composition.
I like light and interesting colours.
pajaran (36224) 2011-10-24 11:37
Toranj koji je najvise puta snimljen, nova fotografije je uvek nesto novo i jedinsteveno.
Vrlo interesantan snimak dela tornja, lepa fotografija.
Dobra ostrina snimka i kontrast kojim ste istakli konstrukciju tornja.
Sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela.
The tower, which is most times recorded, new photos is always something new and UNIQUE.
Very interesting shot of the tower, beautiful images.
Good Sharpness and contrast image which you have pointed out the construction of the tower.
All the best in the new week, which has begun.
vasilpro (40192) 2011-10-24 12:27
Wonderful composition, excellent POV and crop, beautiful details, lovely light and colors, very good clarity, sharpness and contrast, very nice framework, TFS!
subhendu_bagchi (16590) 2011-10-26 4:20
another nice shot. The famous tower is looking nice from this POV. Nice depth and superb sharpness. You managed the light masterfully. A very good capture. Tfs.
Best wishes. Subho Deepabali.
pierrefonds (48347) 2011-10-26 4:57
The tight frame os putting on evidence the base of the Eiffel tower. The point of view is allowing me to see the details and colors of the architecture of the base of the Eiffel tower. The addition of the flag is an extra to the composition. Have a nice day.
Longroute (19390) 2011-10-26 8:22
Difficult to choose between your last post and this one... the discrete charm of a Mumbai misty morning and the graphism of last century technology... but just for a change from your usual Indian scene I decided for this one.
Cliché have a raison d'etre. It means that there is something special and something people like in them, so that everybody want to photograph them. But it takes some expertise and taste to reproduce them in the right way... and this is the case!
A photo where the sense of grandeur of this tower is highlighted producing a remarkable effect.
Perfectly framed IMHO.
nikkitta (5862) 2011-10-26 16:23
Namaste Angshu da,
Common place but creative, very, way to take the photo
Nice natural color, like the way you managed them to obtain the golden ones and great frame
Bravo and TFS
jafadabret (56497) 2011-10-26 23:05
Une vue originale et plaisante des dessous de notre dame de fer !
J'aime le graphisme et les couleurs.
Waylim (22355) 2011-10-31 18:41
Beautiful shot, I love it, I know what it feels like standing righ under here. It was impressive and hard to describe, you did a great job with this POV, it really show the emense size of the tower and put us right underneath it. This way you avoid all the tourists and yet still emphasize very well the scale of it. Great sharpness and clarity, good light and a prefect symetrical composition.
Atousa (7097) 2011-11-12 3:44
Nice pov n great management of light.. the details are well captured n the flag is a nice n meaningful element as well.. good result.. tfs
Best regards, Atousa
ChrisJ (86862) 2011-11-13 4:55
Missed this one. Stunning graphism of this iconic Parisian landmark against the blue bg sky. Good sharpness & the welcome sign at left is a pleasant surprise. Well done!
baclama (15579) 2011-12-17 12:54
un tres bon POV des "dessous " de cette celebre tour....
l'inclusion du drapeau: "welcome" est une bonne idée egalement
maloutim (8608) 2012-07-06 1:43
I think the Eiffel Tower has been photographed millions of times, but I like to see the efforts of photographers to capture all the different POV's. Some are really original, like this one. It's the bottom of the old lady's dress. It looks like the lace petticoat :-))
Lovely tones of blacks and golds against the blue sky.
Very well realised.
Thanks for sharing. Kind regards.
