Good luck with your shoot at Embankment.

Nice captures. Besides, may I know the location of taking the first wide view picture?

Thanks. The first image was taken at sunset from on top of “Tour Montparnasse 56“. You can get a ticket to the top of the tower from the foyer and they allow tripods :-)
