In my recent Springtime in Paris workshop, that incidentally was a huge success, I had ask the class to photograph the Eiffel Tower sometime during the week. Since it’s the most iconic structure in France, or any country for that matter, I thought it might be fun to have a juried exhibition and award a special memento to the photo that was judged (I stayed out of it) by three independent people (artists in their own right) as being the most unusual and creative photograph taken during the course of the workshop.
Several photos were taken after our farewell dinner at Procope, the oldest restaurant in Paris. A private coach picked everyone up after a fantastic meal and great wine and went to the Eiffel Tower at sunset ( 9:41pm) for one last shoot. I gave the first place winner a Crystal Eiffel Tower made by Swarovski.
The second, third, and honorable mention are the first three in the slideshow. All the rest were finalists.

I’ve had so many past students tell me how fantastic and safe it was. The company has led several trips there and have established a great photo guide that will be with us every day.
