Giant in the mist

I took this image (actually, a panorama of two images) several years ago, and just recently thought to revisit it in my “workflow.”

Giant in the Mist

What I like best about this image is the people in it. For many of us, Paris and the Eiffel Tower are romantic places seen only on occasional trips. But for the locals, they’re a regular part of the scenery — almost taken for granted. So while I was working to get a good composition of this image with the tower, the people that lived nearby were going about their regular lives, paying little attention to the tower.
