Eiffel Bling

Eiffel Bling

I took quite a few photos of the Eiffel tower when I visited Paris earlier this year, but this would probably rate as one of my favourites because of the serendipitous way the streetlight glare injected themselves into the shot.

I decided to process this in monochrome to let the light be the main subject in this shot rather than the iconic tower. A warming filter was applied to make it not so black and white, and the usual other processing subjects such as sharpen, lens correction, and some minor cloning of unwanted elements are present.
