Default Some famous monument or something....

Here is a shot that i have been wanting to take ever since i got my 8mm Rokinon....



Well not quite the shot, couldn't get directly underneath due to the work lifts.

C&C always appreciated.

Heh, it is a bit of a different perspective, and different perspectives are fun, especially as most people never really look up.

Cant really go past some cliched shots though:




And the E'cole Militaire

No matter how many times I have seen the tower sparkle, it always takes my breath away when I see it. Nice work.

Only if you want to sell images of it taken after dark. They can't stop you taking a picture and posting it on Flicker or facebook or OCAU.

You actually only allowed limited use even if you take a picture during the day.

Love the tower, has a special attachment to me since I put the word on a smoothy chicky to become Mrs Kombiman on the top floor on a beautiful spring morning! If you like it put a ring on it lol

Yeah, they have clarified the claim since 2005. Its only for commercial usage and publication, of which this certainly isn't.

Lots of websites out there still getting butthurt over the 99-2005 period though.
