You guessed it right... Just Another F*ing Eiffel Tower Pic...
Who has not photographed the Eiffel Tower whilst in Paris?
I guess that I am just as guilty as the rest...

But mine was taken while it was raining!!! ;¬)

Superb work Kees!
Guest 06-Jun-2007 15:06
Unique perspective and very mystique.. Voted.

Both he b&w pic and the hazy background paradoxically reveal how parfect la vieille dame is! I've learnt recently that the erection of the tower was made after revolutionary studies (in 1889) in aerodynamics (the tower had to sustain storms without breaking or collapsing). This perfect, familiar four-legged silhouette is also the result of thorough engineering. And it's still there!
Guest 04-Mar-2007 12:17
This picture is just perfect!
Jim Ross15-Feb-2007 21:50
One of the best shots of the tower i have seen... V.

Excellent composition!! I liked the graphic design created by the lines and shadows. Well done!!
Guest 13-Jan-2007 15:15
Very moody!! I really like this one.
david procter22-Nov-2006 14:12
This is utterly spectacular! Love the human interest laced throughout.
Guest 11-Oct-2006 18:12
Excellent photo. A unique framing of this landmark.
Arjayphotography20-Sep-2006 12:47
Echo everything said. It's one of those fine images that the leading line draws you upper left to bottom right, then back again, then back again, and again. Wonderful - well done!
GdL18-Aug-2006 20:53
Yes, it's another photo of the Eiffel tower, but a unique one at that. I love the mood of this shot.
Jac 04-Jun-2006 20:00
Heh heh heh - looks like the nearest statue is shooting herself in the temple with a hairdrier - she's prollies thinking 'What's the point in me doing my hair if he's just another fxxxing shooter of that tower?':-) Seriously though - I like the apocolyptic (sp?)quality here. Those two figures in semi silhouette at bottom right complete the strong diagonal running from top left to bottom right too. Clever you. .. cos thay also add a sense of scale :-)
Guest 27-Apr-2006 08:05
Great photo....I was just thinking how can you shoot it THAT much differently than what has been shot before? Well I'd say your shot is very creative, and the rain adds much character.
Donné 18-Apr-2006 12:13
Hey, Kees.....atmosphere PLUS here....I trust it really is Paris fog and rain and not "cigar smoke" or something fanciful...LOL The rainy sky and couples with umbrellas, foggy background, wet ground all combined with such a well known structure to create a Terberg Masterpiece.
Kees Terberg02-Apr-2006 19:59
Hey Jude, download the "original" version of this shot! If you stood in the same place, you would have had the same shot anyway. Hehehe, I know for a fact that this is not an original shot at all but hey... I could not resist temptation. ;¬)
jude02-Apr-2006 01:48
Beautiful and a bit mysterious with the fog surrounding the tower..
I've stood in this exact place with Niall - only it was dusk, and my camera battery died - my 24 hours in Paris, but they were ones that made me sure I'd go back..
Teresa Vilhena18-Mar-2006 18:36
Great picture with a diferent perspective. Propably photographers go to this place every day but I have never seen a photograph from this place until now. Congratulations!
inti17-Mar-2006 15:23
I'm in agreement with everyone who hasn't seen a photograph from this perspective..
A superb image.
Regards Rob
Bruno Ponte17-Mar-2006 00:15
That's extraordinary photo.

Kees, I just have to say that I have looked at your galleries from time to time, and they contain many wonderful, wonderful images. The kind that stay with you. Thank you for making the images and then sharing them with us. I will return again to look again. Regards, Ken

Muy buena esta perspectiva de la Tour
Guest 09-Jan-2006 03:30
absolutely superb. i am impressed.


Guenter Eh06-Jan-2006 21:23
Yes Kees - you are right. We have seen a thousands of pictures from TE. So you took too your view of this icon. But this one is 5 stars rated :o) !!!!
arminb14-Dec-2005 14:29
WOW, this is a spectacular compo, the BW perfectly supports the view as well as the weather! Perfect! My vote
Cheers, Armin
Guest 14-Dec-2005 03:30
How could you go to Paris and not do it? This is one perspective that I have never seen before. The greyscale with the shiny wet surfaces works really well! Fantastic image!
Guest 07-Dec-2005 22:27
WOW! Superb! What a capture. One of the best Eiffel shots.
lsyd01-Dec-2005 22:52
a simple pic done very well. great work.

Kees Terberg30-Nov-2005 14:47
I am glad that you too noticed the humour in this shot. I doubt that she is using a hair dryer but it looked like that from this angle. Great with miserable weather like this..
Guest 30-Nov-2005 07:13
when in Rome ...
although it is a nice alternative shot to the wide-angle-between-its-legs type of shot
but what is that first statue doing? blow drying her hair or being suicidal?;-)
