From Every Angle – II

Last July, I made some photos of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, from every angle I could think of.

I had already submitted this entry for the WP Photo Challenge, but Every Angle theme has inspired me to share other angles with you.

Before I do it, let me give you some background information.

I used my Olympus E-M10 mirroless. I post processed them in LightRoom to crop and improve clarity, and some more minor adjustments in exposure, white balance, etc.

Then I decided to edit in Analog Efex Pro 2, a plug-in which gives the possibility to transform a digital photo into an analog one. I wanted it to look like The Eiffel Tower of centuries ago.

The Eiffel Tower is a 301 meters iron lattice tower, on the Champ de Mars in Paris, France. It is named after the engineer Alexandre Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower. Construction started in January 28, 1887 and finished in March, 15 1889.

Let me know what you think of it. If you wish, click to enlarge the photos.

  1. Lucile! These photos of the Tour Eiffel are an exciting take on the usual view we see in photos;) I especially like the one that looks straight up the tower… What symmetry !
    Happy Thursday to you:)

  2. Oh my. These are amazing. Really amazing. I have never seen these angles of the Eiffel Tower before. I especially like the one with the people looking down at you – I don’t think I’ve ever noticed people in any other Eiffel shots before. Spectacularly dramatic from every angle. You rock!

      • They are stunning. I love the feel to the photos that your editing has brought but the composition is really good. I’ve just had another look and that shot look up from underneath is quite breathtaking. Symmetry is fabulous.

        • One day I will show you the original before cropping. I had to play an acrobat to make this shot because the place was crowded and I had to make some cuts. You may remember that I was there at the busiest time of the year.
          Thanks my lovely! Your appreciation means a lot.

  3. Having never been to France, this is a whole new way of looking at the Eiffel Tower–and I love it! Totally agree with you–B&W is the only way to go with this. Awesome, Lucile.

  4. Absolutely fabulous. I’d say it’s mission accomplished for making these look like photos from another era. The third one is almost spooky. You didn’t time travel to take these did you Lucile ⌛️

What do you think? I'd love to hear it all.
