I like this a lot! Why? ...It's not the "normal" touristy view, a unique perspective, perfect composition with the layers: greenery in the foreground, people in the middle ground, and the structure framing the view of the mall with, is it the Paris Military School? in the far distance.

This one is sort of a double for me--the prominent great architecture of the Tower in the foreground and a stately-lookinig building in the background. Good job, Bob.

It really brings the scale into perspective.

Thank you mallen. You're right about the building at the far end of lawns ..... that building would have been a worthwhile subject in its own right.. but it certainly anchored the center of this high perspective shot. I hadn't even heard the term "street" photography when this picture was taken, but it certainly seems to fit the bill.

Thank you John. When this was taken, I thought it was "interesting" ..... but it languished for many years in my archives until I got much better at post-processing. And when I looked again, I thought, "Man!, I can really do something with this."

Thank you Wayne. And with such a grand scale, that's a good thing.

Bob, this is one of the tower's photos that really emphasizes the massive structure and the intricacy of its design. It's certainly a different view and unique because of that.

Thank you Bob. I must admit, I've never seen another image quite like this one. It's growing on me.

Thank you rdfarr. It seems every time you turn around in Paris, there is something noteworthy to be photographed.
