Whatever your age, you’ll want to hop into one of the 48 pods of this wheel rising over Paris! The Big Wheel is part of the Christmas village on the Champs-Elysées. Each year, it welcomes 300,000 passengers who come to admire the spectacular views of the city from this vantage point. Perched at a height of 70 metres (this is the world’s largest mobile Ferris wheel), you can enjoy a breath-taking view of the Tuileries Gardens, the Louvre and the Christmas lights on the Champs-Elysées. A symbol of the festive season in Paris, the Big Wheel has been set up every year in this spot by Marcel Campion, known as ‘the king of fairground entertainers’, since the year 2000.

Excellent point of view on the big wheel. I like the inclusion of the green chairs, which contribute some agreeable splashes of contrasting tone.

This is a very nice composition. The big wheel is supposed to be the star of the show, but I am almost more attracted by the green chairs, which you elegantly used as a foreground. I also like the slightly desaturated colours.

queste sedie sono fatte per rilassarsi al sole, ma qui il sole manca!!!
La ruota è perfettamente al centro e sembra un grande mirino.

These 'eyes' are popping up like mushrooms all over the world. Nice repetition of the green chairs and the 2 birds at top right animate the scene. Tfs!

oh man...there are SOOO many places in Paris which I missed, this one as well. I only had 2.5 days, and it was raining alot...guess i need to go during better weather, and for longer time.
usually we place our main subjects off to one side a bit, but this centre position works well too, i'm surprised by that.
looks a bit chilly and windy, and the clouds give off a cool atmosphere too. thanks for this one, i like it.
