Dommage pour l'ombre projetée sur les façades. C'est quand même une jolie photo.

riflessi magnifici, colpiscono subito l'attenzione.
Sto conoscendo una parte di Francia che ignoravo e la trovo molto bella e interessante.
Bello scatto, ben inquadrato e con bella luce.

Nice reflections and excellent use of diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. Good warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue tones. Superb sharpness and nice repetition of the striped grey and white posts at right. Tfs!
