Default Eiffel Tower on the National Geographic Gallery

I couldn't make it through the finalists, but nevertheless, I'm in the National Geographic 2010 Contest Gallery which may not be a great achievement, but means something to me. You will have to copy and paste the link.

Here's the resized pick:

I'd say that's quite an achievement in itself! Can you imagine the images they had to select from?!?! Congratulations!

Congratulations, Ordo - That's very good news - and a good picture using perspective very cleverly!

Good one, this.

Well your shot was certainly at least on par with the three shots I saw. Even surpassing by a mile or so the shot of the guy on the bench scene. I think judges are ususally pulled from the Stevie Wonder School for Visual Judgement. Oh well you did get some recognition. Congrats again.

What a great acheivement Ordo! The shot is from an angle I never see as most people try to get the whole thing into the frame, very intelligent composition! Congradulations! Frank
