Shutter speed: 1/250 second
Aperture: f/5.6
ISO: 50

    I've been to Paris several times and I don't recall ever seeing a scene quite so magical as this one. The next time I'm there I'm going to visit the Alexander II bridge and try to find this vantage point. This picture is simply breathtaking!

    What a wonderful perspective on Paris, I've never seen it captured quite that way before. Mr. Fafanov composed a wonderful scene with color and composition that truly shows this popular city in a spectacular way.
