Well, after starting in on the streets around the town square and courthouse we headed to a park where Paris has their own Eiffel Tower that I was very excited about shooting.
The tower hasn't always been in Paris and is very small compared to the original in Paris, France but is now a staple in the Paris landscape.
I originally wanted a vertical wide angle shot starting at one of the feet of the tower and stretching upward to the top but the iron railing around the tower plus being 3 feet or so elevated off the ground made that impossible.
I then decided to move to the opposite of the tower and shoot back at the already risen morning sun. I carefully positioned the higher of the two "landings" centered over the sun to create a silhouette with the sun making a white halo behind the tower.
I was auto-bracketing exposures and this particular shot happened to be a -2 shot that I fell in love with because of the really dark blue color the sky took on. A couple of small clouds break up the solid blue background and add to the shot as well.
