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.
