It's a good studio capture, but no substitute for the real thing. Nice lighting.

Nice lighting and great choice of background. Unfortunately your model isn't the best rendition.

I gather you do not live in Paris. Sorry this just does not make it for me.

Not the real thing, but well captured. Bumping up.

The black frame doesn't really add to the photo. This Lady is about delicacy on a unique scale; the heavy black frame makes her look frumpy and fat, not élégante and strangely toujours à la mode.

Continuing to look at this photo, PLEASE tell me it's a model/reproduction and NOT la Tour Eiffel en réalité.

I'm not big on miniatures, no pun intended...

clever shot. the lighting is a little strong, though.

Stunning use of lighting.

Made me smile. I like the warm/cold light approach, though here, with this particular angle, I wonder that it doesn't serve to over-accentuate the rigidty of that choice. It has a sense of lacking detail that isn't solely down to the casting of the little model, either - it may be camera, or it may be processing, or it may be a non-tripod shot, or non-sharpening, but it hasn't got that clarity of fine detail, that immediacy.

i believe it is off topic - the challenge is to shoot REAL landmarks, no?

I think it would have had a stronger impact if it were centered more.

This is way too cheesy given the competition. It's not even in focus.

I want the real thing

Great composition, but the tower could be sharper I think
12/06/2004 02:52:39 AM
She's looking a bit flat these days...

Looks like a replica :D
