Onto the South/West from Eiffel towers third floor

Onto the South/West from Eiffel tower's third floor

In fact what you see in the background is smoke not fog nor smog. Despite the shot has been made during 2005 November hard riots in Paris suburbs this smoke comes from what I assume is an incineration plant. In any case, the suburbs you can see cannot burn cause they are the richest of Paris. To get the chance to shoot some smoke coming from many burning cars, schools, gymnasium, day nurseries (yes!), buses, I would have turned myself of 180 degrees onto the East to see the suburbs were I live.

Nikon D70 , Sigma 18-50

A Parisien climbing the Eiffel Tower?? That's something you don't see every day ;-) But I am glad you did, because this shot is fabulous!

Superbe, Marc, j'adore l'ambiance créé par le contre-jour et l'exposition qui me semble parfaite. Bravo !

Great contrast in this shot - the fog in the distance really makes it.
