The story behind the image
We had passed the Park du Champ-de-Mars several times already – during the daytime. The view of the city centre was surely interesting but not super attractive. So I brought the tripod that night to see what a looong exposure could do to the image.
45 seconds later I knew. The countless tiny lights and star-shaped larger lights captured the moment very well: A vibrant city that is complex yet beautiful, even more so at night. (By the way, is 45 seconds still a moment?) Nice.
