Originally I wanted to photograph the scene with a drone. My first idea was to show the szene from above. Would have worked, but I realized that the unusual angle makes it difficult to comprehend the shape of Eiffel Tower.
Thinking anout how to realize the project, I came up with the idea to build the whole scene in Cinema 4D. That would make it easier to place objects and Tower in a suspensful way.
The drone was build quickly, because there are so many different shapes and designs. Adding four propellers makes almost everything a correct looking drone. Even the saw and the hedge trimmer did not spoil that impression!
Finally I started adding textures and a "real" water surface, also some details. The light setup is pretty simple, although the leaves absorbed a lot of light. The hair object is always good for a well cut lawn. After rendering I added the pilot and a cloudy sky in Photoshop...
