Scary yet completely harmless. Great geometry and subtle tones. Sell it to Novotel as hope shining in the dark.

Great night shot, conveying ( I guess) the spirit of the moment ! Still it looks like some SF movie of a desperate planet :-)

The spirit was pretty relaxed, actually. But I wanted:
- to further test the ability of the Zeiss 35/2 to deliver contrasty shots despite strong lights;
- to mock a piece of architecture that is passable in the daylight, but very poor at night.

...while still possible (see the possible abolition of panorama rights in EU)

We already had EDF with the lighting of the Eiffel tower, and now they (who?) want to generalize the concept ? What are they afraid of ?
