A famous place and well known signs. The red and white neon lights and the red windmill are strong eye-catchers, whether on a photo or on the spot. The gable of the next house strengthens the Parisian atmosphere. The sky threatened to be completely washed out but you managed to squeeze out some details, which certainly benefitted the photo.

Ah, ha! the famous Moulin rouge!
I must confess that even if I have gone to Paris I've never seen it! The image is well framed, showing both the moulin and the sign but I think that if you had waited until the blue hour you'd have got a charmer colours in the sky! (:-) But I guess you had no time to wait! (:-)
did you see the show too?
An interesting photo anyway,

fantastic place indeed. I really recommend the show in there.
Unfortunately when I was there I had similar weather as you did the sky was terrible and it was really hard to capture something interesting. I think I have deleted all my attempts to photograph it but I am kind of jealous now looking at your photo. Regardless what the light is it still preserves some atmosphere and surely is a good documentation from this place,
