[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We were at the Bellagio, Las Vegas watching the water show. I saw the Eiffel Tower and make sure it is included in the photo. Composed the tower off center and the persons will be included.

Shot in colored increased contrast and converted to gray scale. Shot in manual mode due to poor light condition. Resized and added borders for TL.

Hi Melvin..nice shot..your black and white conversion is very interesting and artistic...nice work.


Hello Melvin,

nice capture of this model of the Eiffel Tower. Great composition and use of black and white - the silhouettes of the bystanders really add to the sense of depth and make for a point of interest. Effective framing and presentation as well!

Melvin this is a beautiful shot. Wonderful composition, sharp detail, good presentation. Nice job. TFS, Lori

Hello Melvin

The silhouttes of the people in the foreground make this entire image work. Otherwise it would be just another Vegal shot. Nice composition.
