Peter: I always enjoy viewing your work. I like this shot. I like the juxtaposition of the modern antenna in fg vs the hazy old eiffel in the bg. I'm guessing that you were using the "haze" to create that "old-far-back-in-history" effect to showcase the tower? Also, help me with a technical question, would an 81B or 81C filter have minimized the haze/fog? Or would that not have been a useful choice on this shot? I'm not trying to take anything away from this pic, but just want to learn! Thanks, ...john

I love the contrast between the antenna and Le Tour. It's an ironic picture, as the only thing that saved the tower was it's ability to make an effective TV antenna.
