Paris from the Eiffel Tower

NEW: I'm now making music, JOIN ME ON SOUNDCLOUD!

This is a view of Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower (324 meters/1063 feet high). The original image is around 10.000 pixels wide.

It actually is a montage of many photos I took when I was there (no fish eye, no wide angle, no autopano...).

It took me several days of intense work.

PS: Also see this post with several notes showing all the visible monuments in the picture.

First of all, this photo is wonderful. The overall impact is great, it has great visual appeal. I really enjoy your decision to have the roads and intersections in the dead center of the photograph. This really helps lead the eye right up the center, to the cityscape and then explodes out into the stars. The image quality seems great. I know sometimes when you get taking photos too far out, sometimes they become fuzzy or unadjusted, but this photo is very nice and crispy clear. The colors are vibrant and it is extremely visually appealing. I also like that it is almost split up into three different vision planes (the city and ground, the horizon and atmosphere, and then the sky.) This adds lots of good interest.

One thing that slightly deters me visually is the fact that this photo almost looks like a photomanip. I know that it very well may not be, but the exaggerated stars and bend of the horizon give it an almost surreal aspect.

Overall wonderful peice.. I admire your work.

vision: that looks so cool! turns out that you can see the planet's shape. you must of went up there really high. it looks amazing

originality: I've seen a lot of pictures that are from really high up, but I've never seen a picture that shows the planet's shape

technique: it's fun seeing a bunch of buildings from high up, and a city looking thing farther away. all of that is something great to gaze at. must be miles and miles away

impact: everything from up there looks so small and tiny, and they're too stuck together, except for the water line and the city from far away. then again, you were high up

Ah, this takes me back! When in Paris as part of my LDS Church mission, I spent time in the area framed in this scene! For quite a while I was in Colombes, just outside the area of Neuilly-sur-Seine and the 16th. We used to take the RER into Paris from the gare at La Defense, which was fairly new development then (about 1973/4)...
