Paris, France – Eiffel Tower (HDR)

My favorite icon in the world…the Eiffel Tower.  In the evenings, the tower will twinkle every hour for 5-10 minutes.  A wonderful sight to see!  I wanted to try an HDR with multiple exposures  and see how the twinkling looked.   I thought it may look like little diamonds attached to the tower due to the longer exposures.   Kinda cool, then I added black and white via Silver Efex Pro.  A different view of the Tower!  Hope to get back again soon!  I have a nice list of more sights to see in lovely Paris!   One is to get to the catacombs…now that would be a perfect place for an HDR.
