12.06p.m. - Visitors have always marveled at this great masterpiece for a long time and everyone had tried to show its beauty and glamour from every possible angle, conditions and situations available. Creativity has been stretched to its limit and I find myself joining this band wagon too.
Here I tried to show the beautiful effect of the patterns and steel structures in a particular lighting situation. The sky had not been very helpful to my pursuit and that was all the time I could afford to be there. Hope you like it.
PP – Cropped part of the bottom off after trying a few more layouts in PS, adjusted levels and highlights.

Interesting way of capturing the wonder of the world. Artistically taken. The front area which are darken is well blended with the rear where the sunray put through.

Well chosen POV, your angle adds dynamics and the blurry rest of the construction gives depth... Good detail, creative job!

Hi Aloysius, strange and uncommon view of the Eiffel!

Hi Aloysius, Eiffel tower may be the most photographed architecture posted in TE. It is hard to get a creative shot of the place. You have shown us a totally different view of the architecture.
I enjoy the PoV. With a strong contrast in the foreground and good use of the light, the architecture show a different abstract side of the scene. I enjoy this shot very much. A very well taken picture with clarity, sharpness, and depth. Well done.

Well thought and realised.

Hi Aloysius. I think you found a new framing on this highly photographed icon. You made the best of sub-par lighting. The focus is also good. Well seen Aloysius!

Hi Aloysius - Welcome back - I can you actually visit Paris as well - too bad I never been there (yet) - I like this different view of the Eiffel's Masterpiece - a great different angle and surely one for my theme.
rajhema (1871) 2005-11-11 9:27
