Yesterday I was invited by a friend to a party at his flat, when I got on the balcony I saw the view and I was stunned, his view on Paris goes from Montmartre all the way to Montparnasse with the Eiffel Tower, Invalides, the Opera and even Notre Dame visible. So I just had to take a photo of that! Another photographer happened to be there who had a tripod with her and I borrowed it to shoot this.
I recently switched camera again and this time it’s final! As I was borrowing a Nikon D300 which I returned so I wanted to go buy myself one, but I saw an incredible offer on a Canon 5D mark II (almost the same price as the D300s) so I figured I would opt for the full-frame body and that meant going back to Canon. This is not because I prefer one or the other, it is purely a value for money decision. Full frame is really a difference.
Hope you enjoy the shot as much as I enjoyed seeing the scene and taking the photo.
