This is the big wheel located place de la Concorde at night. It stands close to the elegant fountains at the end of the Tuileries gardens in a nice contrasting effect between history and modern structure.
This shot was made hand-held using the auto-ISO feature which I found useful in such a situation when light conditions change dramatically from one moment to another.

I can see your new 5D serves you well. I like the shot
with only two colours dominating (silver & blue).
Very 'clean' shot compositionally, though cloning out that
bit in the upper right corner would make it even cleaner.
What do you think?

tres bon choix de POV qui donne un effet grandiose accentué par l'eclairage

Great shot. The snow white color of the ferris wheel really jumps out at you. Composition is good as well; the entrance provides a nice counterpoint to the wheel. The only distracting part is that thing in the upper right corner...perhaps it could have been cloned out but it doesn't really detract from a beautiful shot.

I like a lot the pale shining metal against the steel blue sky, and the slight purple cast makes the scene all the more unusual. interesting play of curves and lines, I've always enjoyed abstractions of the everyday things. very well seen and presented, my compliments.

Une composition bien maitrisée,j'aime ce contraste en bleu blanc et les bonnes nuances dans le blanc,l'image claque par son piqué,bien évidemment il y a le matos mais c'est surtout le pilote qui fait la différence.
Je découvre votre galerie,c'est de l'excellent job.
bonne soirée et bonne année 2009
