I took this shot at the Trocadero exit. I saw these huge chalk marks at the floor and thought that this could be a great foreground for the famous Eiffel Tower.

Hi Jopet...excellent shot. Nice tones and composition...well done.


Hello Jopet

I really like this image. It's shows the simple expression that we have next to the great tower. How society has changed. good work on this one.


Encore la tour Eiffel, mais très bien vue. Bravo

Hi Jopet

Please understand these are simply my personal opinions and are meant to be constructive and not cause any offence. And, of course, you have the option of accepting or rejecting them.
I assume that, with such a long exposure, you used a ND filter for this shot??
The low angle and the wide angle lens gives an interesting view. Nice lighting, intersting clouds and fountains(?) add to the interest of the main subject.
Some notes on how you achieved the shot would be useful.

Perfect simetry from a very well chosen place. Great light and contrast with a perfect composition. I believe you've awaked very soon to get this perfect image. Am I right?
Congrats, Jopet

Hello Jopet.
Once a saw a documentary abt photography, the person said; people captures Eiffel tower, there r millions of pictures of eiffel tower, how to make ur picture stand away from those millions, the answer was simple POV. & here I see a different POV, beautiful light.
