Two days ago, I tried to benefit from a short stop in Paris before coming back to Douala and get some taste of the Parisian atmosphere which we miss so much.
I thought that going to the Concord square would be a good spot to catch that atmosphere and test my new camera. I remember that some five years ago, when TE was new to me, I published my some of my first pictures about that place.
Unfortunately, there was not water in the fountains to play with the lights. I guess the freezing temperature has to do with that. But I could discover a large illuminated wheel which a nice plus in that historical landscape.
Back to Douala tonight. It was an exhausting trip. The positive side is that it's 30°C at night instead of -1° yesterday...

Dommage pour les eaux de la fontaine, et aussi pour la roue, trop surexposée, le ciel gris, mais c'est un temps de saison. Sinon belle composition . Il faut être courageux en ce moment pour sortir faire des photos :-)

How did this not get more critiques? It's quite amazing to me, because it's an excellent shot. The lighting is quite dramatic, the exposure is perfect, and I like the 3 part composition too. Well done!
