Colossus is more like it, Flo. smile And you have caught it such that it LOOKS as big as it is. I agree that this is one of the most creative views of it I've ever seen. Congratulations.
Florence: Many, many thanks Ginnie !

You have pictured a well-known landmark in a new and very interesting way.

Regardless of the subject, this is a most intersting, beautifully balanced composition and is superbly converted to mono. Added to that, you have an interesting sky as a background to set it off.

Excellent in every department.
Florence: Thanks Colin.
awesome angle and nice silouette view
I am pretty sure I know where this is smile This is a good way to capture its silhouette.
Great shot. Real sense of drama here.

sheez...you are becoming an expert at the art of shooting the much-shot-shot in an interesting way

the fact that the spire is still visible and on that sky!...just marvelous! Such good detail. Top marks for you on this one and a likey for me
Florence: You're right ! It's becoming more and more difficult to take original pictures of that kind of spots... That's why I like taking pictures, always be original... no easy, isn't it ?

un bel angle de vue !!! belle rentrée
hi florence, lovely capture of the much photographed tower, although i havent photographed it-'yet'.The tower certainly 'towers' above you in this image and the cloud finishes it perfectly
Superb! an unnusual & very effective angle smile

Bravo : comment changer le regard sur un objet vu et revu, mais toujours aussi beau (c'est aussi l'ingénieur qui parle)
