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.

    Wow! What can I say? Wow! The b&w, infrared treatment really works with this image. The entire tower is glowing, and the sky is fantastic. Great work, Pete!

    Great shot, Pete! I love Paris too but haven’t been there for 5 years or so. Beware, by the way – the copyright police are pretty strict about people selling images of the Eiffel Tower lights. While the building itself isn’t copyright, the light show is and I know several photographers who have been served take-down notices when they offered night time shots of the tower for sale.
