Paris ville lumière! I went to Paris and honestly I did not want to take the Eiffel Tour ...but what can I say... It was at the end of a long day, I was tired and felt since I was there that I had to take that shot. I used my recently acquired tripod. It was my second shooting all in manual, manual focus.. I came back home and opened it in Photoshop and I closed without changing anything (except of course adding the border). The sky has an orange colour probably due to the fact that it was cloudy that night. The lights at the top are in perfect position...I might say I was quite happy with this given my little experience..what you think?

Très belle capture MarieJosé. Je sais ce que tu as ressenti car j'ai été dans la même situation que toi cet été. Cela étant dit, ta photo est très bien réussie. Belle perspective et très bon positionnement de la caméra. Couleurs de l'illumination bien captées.
Bravo!
Réal

Woow !
Great photo, or perfect photo. Right, u must happy with this experience. And if i can, i also wanna take photos with EIFFEL.
TFS.
Hlaing.

Great angle and color tones. I havent been in Paris but perhaps Eiffel is more impressive when enlightened at nite.

This tower always reminds me the words of Guy de Mauppassant ( I think he is the one said this) He was protesting and didnt want that tower build, after it's been built a journalist saw him in the tower and he's suprised and asked: "you were against it and now you are here, why?" He replied: This is the only place i dont see Eiffel tower in Paris :)

So nice shot. TSF:)

i like thie light here, nice

MarieJo, excellent shot of the tower, the colours are just perfect as is the perspective. I have seen may shots of the Eiffel Tower, this one is my favourite. Great work. Paul.

Very nice shot!

Un point de vue comme je les aime!

Excellente idée et bien pensé, car cela change des points de vue habituels, à-la-touriste, trop commun.

Ici nous avons une très belle vue, fort originale et avec des couleurs très chaleureuses.

La longue exposition nous laisse bien voir les rayons de lumière au sommet de cette tour ainsi qu'un beau détail dans la structure même.

Bravo!

very very nice !!! I like it , good work :D

Très bonne photo MarieJo, la lumière est superbe et l’angle de prise de vue sort de l’ordinaire. La tour Eiffel sous un autre angle, ça nous permet de redécouvrir ce chef d’œuvre d’architecture.
Bravo!
Guy

This is fantastic shot of our "Grande Dame".
The light is really perfect and you chose a great perspective , very very well done :)

Bonsoir marie José!
J'habite au Luxembourg, je suis à quelques heures de Paris et malheureusement j'en ai jamais eu le temps de vister cette belle ville. Cepedant, j'ai déjà eu l'occasion de voir beaucoup de photos de la tour et je dois admettre, celle-ci est formidable. Le POV est hallucinant de même que les couleurs semblent tirées d'un rêve. C'est formidable.
Félicitations.
Luci

Fantastic shot. Great lighting and angel. Well done.
Regards,
Mohammadreza

Bonjour Marie José,
bel angle de vue pour nous présenter le Grande Dame d'acier...
Beau rendu des couleurs venant de ces illimunations
Du bon travail
Fred

A few weeks ago we went to Paris and I made a few standards of the Eifeltower. The most pictures you see are standard, but for me this one isn't. Nice agled crop and nice colours. Well done.

Don

excellent.

Hello MarieJose.
You made an excellent work here.I like the angle,the light,the tone...a great POV!
Really well done...ecellent!
Regards, Francesco

Marie, this is a brilliant photo with an amazing pov, great dof and stunning use of available light.

This reminds me that it's way too long since I've been to Paris - thanks for the memories, Marie-José ;o).
This is a stunning picture indeed. Exposure is perfect, compo impeccable. I like the way the tower seems to "rest" on the right lower corner of the picture, rising diagonally... A very well succeeded night shot. Well done.
Did you go all the way up ? It really offers a perfect view over most of Paris!
TFS.

You can’t go to Paris and not take a picture of the Eiffel tower. The challenge is to find the unexplored angle/light. You did a fine creative job M-J.

Hi Marie !
Excellent point of view/perspective !
Great colors and frame !
All the best and Happy new Year!
Rui

I've seen many shots of the Eifel tower but this is great. Different angle makes all the difference. Stunning shades of gold and brown/copper/something. Frame adds nicely to the overall impression.

Marie-Jo,

Esta foto es realmente impactante, ya sé que es un motivo mil veces footografiado, pero eso le da a tu imagen más valor, porque aún siendo lo mismo, esta tiene gran calidad.

Gracias por tus comentarios sobre mi trabajo y ¡Feliz y Próspero Año 2006! cargado de imágenes que capturar...

I have my own version of Eifel Tower, however your version is the target! Very nice work... next time at Paris I'll try a tripod :)

An awesome view of a well photographed landmark! Your position beneath the tower gives a great sense of scale. Well done and Happy New Year!

Alli

Really impressive. I goes to my favorites folder.

Excellent point of view, good sharpness. Congratulation Marie J, nice compo.

Pamela

Ca, c'est TRÈS a mon goût !
De base, la composition est intéressante puisque non-conforme à la façon dont on voit normalement la tour mais en plus, le piqué y est, l'exposition parfaite et les deux faiseaux lumineux qui partent à gauche et à droite au sommet créent un équilibre superbe.
Bravo,

Benoit

suuuper night lidht mmmm :)

Hello. This is the "photo of the day"!
Great prespective you use. Beautiful colours!! Great work. Well done!! Congratulations!! :O)

Tres belle prise Marie-Josee, la fameuse Tour Effel. Photo tres reussie, j'aime l'angle que vous avez utilise, cela donne plus de profondeur a l'image, tres bonne perspective.

Bonjour Marie-José,

Mais comment j'ai fait pour rater cette photo?
Comme tu pourras le constater en allant à la fin de ma page de photos je suis assez fan de ce style de photo, et celle-làest excellente!
Quelle composition, quelle lumière, quelles couleurs! J'en suis jaloux!
Allez hop, dans mes favoris!

Marc.

Ma préférée!
Bon dimanche.
Alain.

I fully understand that you were happy with it, if it was me - I would be jumping up and down with joy if I managed to produce something like that. It's stunning!!! Never been to Paris, but one of these days will hopefully also point my camera at one of the most photographed towers in the world.
Very Well Done,

Shelly:)

Hi

Wondeful angle of such a stunning monument. The lighting from the tower is superb, you angle is unique. Well done.

SF.

Cette photo est remarquable par son angle de prise de vue original, son cadrage audacieux, son jeu de couleurs et de lumière à la fois subtil et déterminé, la netteté de ses détails et sa profondeur de champ. Elle vient s'ajouter à ma liste de photos favorites.

I envy you, I envy you, I envy you! :)
Great shot with most amazing POV I can imagine. Now I have to go to Paris and make a similar shot ;)
Great work, congratulations and TFS!

I never seen Eiffel, but here looking marvellous.

Hello Marie-Jose,

A magnificent photograph captured from a dramatic PoV. Wonderful colour, lighting and manual exposure (and other camera settings). Nice timing with the light beams atop the tower. Excellent photographic skills, well done.

Kindest regards
Wayne

Fantastic shot MarieJose! Couldn't want to take a better picture of the Eiffel Tower myself! Just love those long-exposure night shots... TFS

Salut , Quelle belle image , bien fait ! Tu montres la beauté de symbol de Paris très bien .
Bonne chance

Bonjour Marie-Jose,
Il y a les photos de la tour et TA photo de la tour!!!!
wow quelle splendeur!
Merci d'avoir commenté une de mes photo, ça m'a amené à découvrir ton portfolio (par réciprocité ;o)) et, dans l'ensemble, j'applaudis à toutes tes photos de nuits. ne sachant si je devais commenter celle de la piscine au Mexique, l'hotel Bellagio, ou autre, mon oeil s,est arrêté sur celle-ci... mais la note parfaite aurait pu tout aussi bien s'appliquer aux autres ;o)

Hi there!
A great shot of a magnificent structure!
I love the colour, its almost unreal in its warm amber quality. Your POV and composition are also excellent.
Well done!
PS - I tried a similar shot of the Eiffel, but during the day; have a look...

Paris... wonderful
