Eiffel Tower with an Added Extra

I’ve written about adding something extra to the frame many times in this blog. It’s the best way to get that WOW shot.

I often will hang around famous monuments in big cities such as Paris, waiting for something compelling to come into the frame.

I waited about an hour around the Eiffel Tower before a little girl riding a bicycle with training wheels rode in front of it.

Without the girl, the photo is just the Eiffel Tower in the fog, which is compelling, but the added extra makes it a WOW photo!

I also converted the photo to black-and-white using Photoshop. I converted the photo in the Raw dialog box by tweaking the Color Saturation and other sliders to get the best of the contrasting grays.
