Fun Angles and Low Light

This image of the Eiffel Tower in Paris was taken with my small Panasonic FX-30 at ISO 800. Even so, the low light required a 1/8th of a second shutter speed. I was careful to hold very steady – I actually hold my breath for a second- and with the help of the image stabilization feature in that camera, was able to make a decent shot. I would normally recommend a tripod. Since everyone has photos of the Eiffel Tower, I tried to see it a new way and have fun with the angle.
