The lighting brings out the detail beautifully.

Thanks for the kind words all. Its very difficult to get a unique viewpoint of this, or any of the Parisian landmarks, as they have all been photographed to death. I think I done ok with the limited time I had ( and the limited patience of my other half, who god bless her already grants me too much time trying differnt angles and walking around things for that " perfect shot"!

Me: "Just 1 more ( means just 10 more) from the other side of the road, is that ok?"

Her: "Sigh ( counts to ten and smiles) - sure thing, dont worry take your time"!
