I plan to set up either up on the elevated section at the end of the Tulleries where it meets the Place, or if I can't get up there set up on the curb there and shoot straight down it to the Arc with a 300mm. I've seen pictures like this before and they are pretty cool.

I'd been drinking wine, the sky was cool and the strobe light from the eiffel tower was looking like a UFO at times against the clouds so I snapped this pic trying to get the UFO effect. That didn't entirely work out but it wasn't a bad snap anyway. There was more wine on the other side of the street in any case.

Now I have a Canon EOS Rebel T3i with a 18-200 zoom, lol, the tech. aspects are somewhat lost on me. I don't do any post processing either, just play around for fun. I enjoy attempting to compose in the frame.
I like taking pictures of birds so I should probably start using a tripod but it's a bother to lug around. If I get a bigger lens I'll have to though.
