The Place de la Concorde is one of the major squares in Paris, France. It is located in the city’s eighth arrondissement, at the eastern end of the Champs-Élysées.

The Place was designed by Ange-Jacques Gabriel in 1755 as a moat-skirted octagon between the Champs-Élysées to the west and the Tuileries Gardens to the east. Filled with statues and fountains, the area was named Place Louis XV to honor the then king.

    Love the lighting and colours in this shot and the softening of the water produced (presumably) by a longer exposure. Beautiful photo!

    Thanks for the kind words! That was actually a 13 seconds exposure, straight from the camera.

    Gorgeous capture, Christopher! I love the softness created by the long exposure, and the twinkle lights.

    Oh WOW! I know that’s not much of a comment but seriously!
    Let me get specific – love the detail and the water effect. The picked out gold seems to be highlighted by the silken water effect.
    Magic stuff – makes me want to come right over and check it out for myself.

    Sensational exposure, with beautiful detail in the fountain, and the bridal veil effect is just superbly done.
