I'm guessing...Eiffel Tower??

What most people see as an iconic example of industrial design has been transformed through your eye into a piece of quasi-Islamic geometric design!

Yep, it is La Tour Eiffel itself. I am curious, where do you see the quasi-Islamic influence in this design?

Simply the geometric patterns I see here if you imagine this as a flat canvas - maybe not strictly 'Islamic' but certainly geometric...it could almost be a carpet pattern

Lovely. Great art from great art.

Was this done "freehand"? I always have a bit of vertigo when I try to do that! (One reason I appreciate the articulated view screen on my SX20 IS!)

Best regards,

Doug

Hi Cem, superb, I've seen this angle before, but yours is unique and superior in many aspects.

There must be something oriental in the image, my first thought was that it resembled a Persian rug.

Regards,

Ruben
