It was just before the National Day in France. I went there in one evening. The tower was, as usual, astounding. The curves reminded me some thing traditional … it was like a diamond…. which is for ever !
I forgot to bring my tripod that evening. It was already a bit darker than I was expecting. So decided to put the camera on the bridge fence to work out some long exposures. After one or two shots the Eiffel started to sparkle and I took few more. After few months when I was looking back, actually I started to like those shots even though the sky was dark and there was no such good details …! I thought that could be a new blend of tones ….. the reflections were looking good. Hope you like it.

This is a view through time of Paris from one of the Glass Clocks of the Musée d’Orsay using the fisheye lens!
The old postcard texture is not edited, but due to the dirt on the windows.
You can see part of the Louvre on the right and Montmartre and Sacré-Coeur on the left!!
This is a re-edit of an image I posted about two weeks ago. Specifically, this is a composit of four images shot over about a two hour period. In a nut shell, the sky is at sunset and the river and city is about about an hour after sunset. Actually, there are different portions of images being inserted as you move from the upper portion of the image to the lower to create a smooth transition. The one big exception to this “rule” is the river, which is from the same image as the sky. The reason was I both did not want the glassy look of a long exposure in this composite, and I wanted the light reflection from the sunset on the water.
The difference between the first posted edit and this one has to do with Notre Dame. In the first posted edit Notre Dame was taken from an image at the end of the shoot after sunset, and therefore, was lit by artificial light. I didn’t like the contrast this created between the sky at sunset and the building, which was essentially an hour later. This edit changes that, and Notre Dame is now taken from the same image as the sky. Enjoy!
