Photographer's Note

After having lived 2 years in Paris and 8 trips here before, I finally went up the Eiffel Tower! This shot was taken on the first floor. I was looking over the edge and when I turned around I saw this couple kissing. So I lined the shot up through the center of the grill work and shot. I was very happy that there was also a reflection of them kissing in the frame.

Actually this is 2 different shots stiched together. Both shots I took had a tourist walking through the frame and I wanted to give a sense that they were the only ones there, so I copied parts of each picture into the frame to take out the tourists.

I chose to give the image a sepia tone to make it look more timeless. I had tried in B&W but the mood seemed to cold for a kiss so I warmed it up with the sepia color. Finally I did some levels and contrast adjustment.
