So very nice; so very French. Great picture, Genie.

That dome, I think, is what gives it such extraordinary appeal.

It's magnificent. You've captured it beautifully.

Superb! It refers two of the ways to enjoy Paris, in small group or in couple. And part of the time at night. Sure the couple comes from the Pont des Arts. The power of the small red spot of the flag at center is amazing. ...why I feel like to look for a just made Croque-madame and a glass of wine at this time of night?

Excellent photograph - well lit up indeed!
