The Sacré-Cœur Basilica (Roman Catholic basilica) is a popular landmark in Paris, France, dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The basilica is located at the summit of the butte Montmartre, the highest point in the city.
It was completed in 1914 using travertine stone.
I was also lucky to capture a flying bird which gives some motion to the picture as the shot was done fast.

Hi Clemence. The black and white gave an amazing mood to this picture. It is a bit dark but I like it since it helps making that mood. It seems that you are specialist catching bids :). The only but is that you seem to have oversharpned the bird, the cross and some parts of the trees but still I like it. Amitiés. Paulo
