Photo Friday – Eiffel Tower

DSC_0145

When taking pictures of a really well known object, it can be easy to reproduce the exact same photo as every person who has ever been there. This is why the vast majority of the photos of the Eiffel Tower look the exact same. When I’m photographing these places, I still take the required photo that everybody knows. But then, I move around until I find an angle that I’m not used to seeing.  With this photo, I think I’ve managed to get a unique angle that I’m not used to as well as one that still preserves the graceful lines of the tower.

Nikon D5000, 18-55mm kit lens
Aperture: f/3.5
Shutter Speed: 1/50s
Focal Length: 18mm (27mm equivalent)
ISO: 5000 (I accidentally forgot to reset the ISO from the night before so it’s a little grainy)

Compare this to the most common shot of the Eiffel Tower and you can see the difference:
