    I was getting a bit bored with the usual building photo angles and framing. So I tried this tight look. It was a gorgeous sunset and the light was this amazing golden colour. Try and imagine the building a sort of un-interesting grey and that's what it normally looks like.

    The Pantheon, Paris.

    And this is another strange-ish angle on the Eiffel Tower.

    And here's a sort of botched job on a duotone... guess what building! ;-)
    Even though the conversion is dodgy coz I mucked around in the shadows/highlights control... i sort of like how it's detached from the sky. hmmm sometimes it grows on me and other times I hate it.

    Thanks for looking! :) :hug::

    Even though it's a botched job, it still has enough visual interest that you can get away with it. ;) The angle really makes the shot here. Very cool.

    My favorite is the second one, very simple and nice. :thumbup:

    Very interesting shots all three! I love the color in that first shot and the angles are nice and different! I really like the effect in the last shot! : )

    I like these a lot Meysha, and your treatment of the Eiffel Tower is great, especially on #3...

    Well I wish I could take credit for the structures but thanks!

    Thanks everyone else as well. I do have a wider angle of that second shot if you want to have a look at it as well. I think I prefer the closer one though.

    Oh and yippee I might be getting a 350D by next week.

    Great shots. I like the effect on the third, but would like to see it a little brighter (it may be this monitor at work... It's starting to die)

    I think all three of these pics are immense, my favourite is actually that "botched" eiffel tower one, it has a really dark, ominous feel to it.
