Eiffel Tower 2

Posted by
Daryl Johnson (Worcester Park, United Kingdom) on 31 October 2010 in Architecture and Portfolio.

It sounds obvious, but... I was seriously impressed with the Eiffel Tower. I remember being told that towers in Japan such as Tokyo and Nagoya Towers were based on the Eiffel Tower, so I was honestly expecting something on a similar scale. How wrong I was. The tower absolutely blew me away when I finally saw it, and I was impressed every time I saw it, different days, different locations. I couldn't get enough of it - Magnificent structure!

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Wow, what an interesting framing, very nice! Too bad the weather wasn't helping but the reflection of the wet tarmac really helped this shot!

I like this angle. I have some by night in a similar angle ... wide angle lens was a wise decision for the tower.

Superb framing Daryl, and B/W is the perfect choice. (it rained when we went to Paris too).

Very interesting foreground, I like the wide angle! But.....to say the truth...everything gets to be interesting in Paris! (About towers and their heights....you should come back and see the Tokyo Sky Tree when it is finished and get lost in the clouds!)
