Your Photo: Our Critique

Anmol Tandon submitted this image taken with a Canon Powershot G3, with no other data available. Anmol has captured the Eiffel Tower up close, and while we have all seen photos of the famous landmark from top to bottom, this photo gives you a much better feel for the detail. Despite being a night shot, the digital noise is not bad.

Anmol Tandon submitted this image taken with a Canon Powershot G3, with no other data available. Anmol has captured the Eiffel Tower up close, and while we have all seen photos of the famous landmark from top to bottom, this photo gives you a much better feel for the detail. Despite being a night shot, the digital noise is not bad. If the plan was a nice symmetrical shot of the detail, a step back would have given Anmol more to work with in terms of cropping or straightening the image and centering the tower in the frame.  Another step to the left would also have helped with the symmetry. If showing the amazing detail of the structure up close was the plan, this works. The blue lights are slightly overexposed, a smaller aperture could have helped give the lights a twinkle effect instead. Overall this is a nice image and one that does capture a viewer’s attention.
