Real old picture or fake vintage? It doesn't really matter, just a curiosity.
I like this shot. I think it would work even better in square format, with less dark buildings on the sides.
Still, good keeper for me.

Love the depth and shadow detail. Congratulations on this one - a real masterpiece. Keeper.

Excellent... great tones when viewed on black... As a logical alternative, I totally agree with gio.o regarding a square crop...

Beautiful tones. If it's a fake vintage, it's done extremely well.

The detail on the buildings is great.

But again, square crop would be even better.

Easy keeper.

I love the square frame more than most, but I disagree about cropping this image. My eyes bounce from far left to far right to mid left, mid right, then tower - following the tones and the distance right into the shot. For framing, geometry, forced perspective I think it's about as good as it can be. Even the distortion lean works here -- the outer building edges almost paralleling the tower.

You don't teach post processing classes do you?

This is wonderful. The vintage tones work extremely well. I love the way the Eiffel Tower is fading into the background. I almost expect to see a flying saucer aiming a disintegration ray at it.

Big fat keeper.

The excellent processing alone is good enough but the shot itself is lovely. Not sure if it really needs a different crop and I love how the foreground buildings are all leaning in towards the tower, almost at the angle of the tower's frame. Easy keeper.
