Photographer's Note

Another Parisian shot which focuses on the sunset on a famous monument : the Eiffel tower this time. I used the same technique as for the ”Institut de France”.

This shot was taken from the Tuilerie gardens between the Concorde place and the Louvres palace with a 280mm and a x1.5 conveter which left me with enough luminosity to shoot without tripod. I made several tests with Manual setting (both speed and aperture).

I let you imagine that it’s not the first time I shoot at the Eiffel tower but most of the time it’s quite disappointing but in this one, I found the presence of the typical public lights quite interesting : I felt they enhanced the parisian mood of the picture.

Technical side :
- Rotated the original one a little bit.
- Increased saturation of colors thanks to the “Layer adjustment curves” in Photoshop.
- Ran the picture which became quite noisy several times in Neatimage.
- Blured out the remaining disturbing noise.
- Resized and added a light black framing.
- Resaved with more compression to keep the picture below the 200 ko.

If you are interested, have a look at the original picture.
