Wow, such a wonderful view and perspective, would be a great postcard, Congrats on that score, I know how you feel about the no honorable mention, but your shot is much better than mine :). Way to find the simple beauty in a complex structure.

Excellent photo. However you should be cautious, since you're not actually allowed to take photographs of the Eiffel Tower at night since the lights are copyrighted. You should definately not attemt to sell this as prints or stock or you could get into mucho trouble. More Info

Excellent composition :)
(I hope you asked permission to shoot this, as I understand you are not allowed to publish pictures of the Eifel Tower with the lights on) ;-)

Isn't the Eiffel Tower at night copyrighted?

At any rate, it's a fantastic shot. Lots of detail and a beautiful perspective.

This POV is just stunning.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great perspective.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/21/2006 10:56:47 PM
Best so far!!!!!!

I was going to submit a completely black exposure saying "Paris by night".

I am glad I did not, althoug it would have been good fun ...

With this shot, you can go straight to the postcard stand and sell it.

Magnifique! (10)

simply a great postcard - where can i buy one?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/21/2006 10:06:42 AM
a little color in the sky would make this a lot stronger IMO - like 45 minutes after sundown. The black is very oppresive to the composition
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/21/2006 04:40:55 AM
good idea to use landscape format. nice and somple approach, color, border and text go well together. a bit oversharpened.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/20/2006 08:07:44 PM
What a unique shot of the Eiffel Tower. I am sure I have seen night shots, and I am sure I have seen shots looking straight up, but I don't think I have seen the two combined before. Great lighting and detail.

classic shot of a great monument...i like the perspective of being almost directly underneath it...towering over you
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/20/2006 11:45:43 AM
That says Paris to me. It's a beautiful shot and I think it would be a popular postcard.

Beautiful shot!!

Wonderful! Love the perspective view.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/20/2006 09:02:43 AM
Wow, the idea was great. On my monitor it looks a bit oversharpened or something. Lacks detail at the bottom, at least in this awful monitor :) lovely postcard though.

so cool. maybe smaller font though
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/20/2006 12:41:44 AM
The vantage point is very nice, and you got a lot of nice detail in the entire structure. It's like I can see every beam! And the background is so nice and black.
