I like this perpective that I discovered a few months ago. I took a picture at night at the same place which is available in my portfolio.
But I was quite tired when I took this one. I took a contre-jour at 800 ISO! The noise was too important in the clouds, so I decided to denoise it radically. It gives a relative "painting" style. What you see is the red channel, there is no HDR treatment but shadows/highlights.

Interesting to read your comments. I was wondering if this was two or more images "joined". But no. Indeed, a nice shot.

Great use of line. Especially with all the lines in the bridge ending at the pair in the middle of the bridge. Great composition as well, how the bridge is off to the left instead of dead center.

Very nice lines with the bridge. The sky really adds to the contrast between organic and geometric.

I'm not sure how you put this shot together (since the challenge is under expert rules) but I like the overall effect and composition. Very satisfying. 8.

Great B&W image really like the windowing care to capture the full height of the tower on the right. Well done

Great b/w conversion. I really like the pure blacks and whites here.

Nice shot - Like the tones - and the composition is great - Something looks a little off though and I don't know what? I think it's the burning in of the clouds around the bridge is a little fake looking as you can see white - Still a great image but could do with some more saturation in the blacks as it looks a little grey overall.

I love the duplicity of the bridge's construction alongside the famous Tour Eiffel. Nice tones, perspective, sky. Good luck. ;~D 8
