If someone wants to see bones and skulls must go at Paris Catacombs, a very dark and creepy place, therefore very interesting to check out!!! The Catacombs of Paris or Catacombes de Paris are an underground ossuary in Paris, France. Located south of the former city gate (the "Barrière d'Enfer" at today's Place Denfert-Rochereau), the ossuary holds the remains of about 6 million people and fills a renovated section of caverns and tunnels that are the remains of Paris's stone mines. Opened in the late 18th century, the underground cemetery became a tourist attraction on a small scale from the early 19th century, and has been open to the public on a regular basis from 1874. Following an incident of vandalism, they were closed to the public in September 2009 and reopened 19 December of the same year.
The official name for the catacombs is l'Ossuaire Municipal. Although this cemetery covers only a small section of underground tunnels comprising "les carrières de Paris" ("the quarries of Paris"), Parisians today often refer to the entire tunnel network as "the catacombs".

Yes, this is creepy. You have a good composition, but the low light has made this image too dark to see clearly, and given it a very shallow DOF (depth of field). That means much of it is out of focus. This shot could have used a fill flash or a slow shutter speed on a tripod to make it brighter and sharper.
