The view of Paris central business district from the mid levels of the Eiffel Tower, looking across Trocadero Gardens. I liked the symmetry and perspective in this shot.

It is a breath taking view from the top of the Eiffel Tower and you have certainly recreated this impression. It is a wonderful vista of historic gardens and architecture to the rising skyscrapers of the modern era. The f/g clarity, set against the mist of the b/g emphasises the sense of depth.
A you note, a fine symmetry.
Have a lovely day,

Bonjour, cher Chris,
Il faut prendre de la hauteur pour découvrir Paris en pleine transformation à sa périphérie. Les immeubles de grande hauteur ont pris possession de la ville. Heureusement, le coeur de Paris garde son aspect tant aimé.

Wow! What a view on La Défense captured in the background! Really impressive one with a very well executed classy composition. Like it! Well done.
Have a nice Sunday!

Not the best of days to climb the Eiffel Tower weather wise. Nevertheless, you have managed to capture this interesting symmetrical image. I like the contrasts in style between the foreground classical architecture and the high rise buildings of La Défense to be seen in the distance. The image has good colours and detail despite the poor light conditions. Bon dimanche!

Good afternoon Chris, this is an excellent pov of the Trocadero, one of the most visited place of the world, high definition, good dof and deep view of Paris

A great capture, looking over the old buildings of Paris to the monsters lurking in the back ground.
Lovely symmetry. Hope the crane on the left of the shot isn't going to build something that will spoil the view. TFS

The distance between the gardens and the buildings in the background is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Trocadéro gardens and of the Chaillot Palace. The light is giving a good contrast to the colotrs. Have a nice day.

Splendid view to Paris with great détails and nice architecture on FG. Well done!

you know why I like this photo?
because it has the La Defense way into the bg, a spot in Paris that I could easily pitch a tent and spend a couple of nights and days with my tripod and enjoy every moment of it.
obviously great views here, a very fun photo to take!
enjoy your day

La perspective conduisant du Trocadéro à La Défense est impressionnante depuis la tour. En faire une photo est incontournable et tu l'as très bien fait.

Hi Chris , amazing view of the old paris and the new district behind it. Much better when they do not mix. Splendid sharpness, excellent symmetry, the people are so tiny below.

stunning shot of Paris this, it amazes me how much the skyline has grown. On my first visit to Paris just after leaving school there was nothing like the buildings seen here. Really must make another trip over soon. Wonderful detailing and fascinating presentation.

PS - Been off line for 3 days and still having connection problems now, so trying to catch up! B.

Wonderful view of the city, captured with excellent quality! Very good colors and sharpness, and the soft colors of the buildings in the background give very good depth to the image! Beautiful job!

I don't see a lot of panoramic view of the city of lights during the day, this is an awesome view taken from above. Good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.

Ciao Chris, great POV, lovely composition with fantastic skyscrapers in BG, wonderful colors, excellent perspective and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
nikkitta (17066) 2013-09-30 15:25
Good for you to wait and go up the tower in a cloudy day or you went for lunch ( pique-nique chic ) to restaurant 58, which is the best choice ?
Anyway you composed a good panoramic of Paris Defense at the back, traditional Paris at the middle and the Garden near below
Well done, tfs
