    the first shot is certainly an appropriate use of B&W. it gives the image a ghostly/ethereal look. :cool:

    i just have to reiterate that the first one is very cool.

    to me, it evokes a sensation of dread. the eiffel tower looks evil. the cars' headlights look like the eyes of little monsters racing towards me from all directions. it's almost like the eiffel tower is vibrating in the background. again, very effective use of b&w.

    or perhaps i have an inner ear problem. :hs:
