Parisien ~

With my family, we visited the Champs-Elysées to watch the Christmas lights, it was so beautiful, a ton of lights everwhere sparkling in front of our eyes!
Infortunely, we couldn'tafford the parking, too expensive! So we visited the place by being inside our car, it was so hard to take pictures, every pictures of lights were all very blurry!
The only pictures which were not blurry were the ones where there was no light like the one above.

I know the quality is not great... but it was one of the 3 that wasn't blurry and i didn't want to delete it... So i uploaded it here after applying an action from:icondavidnanchin: and create some colors layers.

It's so cold here! And it's raining almost everyday. >o<

Place: Champs-Elysées, Paris, France
Knowing that it is tricky and difficult to capture good images in the nighttime, this is amazing. Either way it captures what some might see (if they were on this street) as faded beauty, fading into a background of too many bright lights. But the way you captured this (the lighting, the words spaced where they are, that little bit of light at the top left) brings a more special-occasion feel to the place. It's like telling people to stop and smell some roses, only stop and see the lights' glows.
The reflections of light on the street is also helpful in making the scene, since it brings out that more-magical feel. But that might be me being more biased than normal because I think rain makes stuff magical anyways.
Good art!! :)

I love this photo. :love: There is some atmosphere here that gives me a nice feeling, something like.. Ah I don't know how to explain in words. This photo is something I'd often see in a magazine. I just like it, the action you used here as well. :thumbsup: Besides, I love Paris.. and I love Christmas lights, too.
Wow! The parking is really that expensive? :noes: Aww!

And yes, parking, depending of the zone in Paris, can really by expensive, sometimes it can go up to 10€ for a place! oO
