This shot was a minor miracle. This scene hit you as you come out from the Opéra station exit and turn around. Truly magnificent building laced in gold, intricately detailed, and clearly storied. Of course, a slight touch of rain provided this reflection, but my luck was that I got this 4 second exposure with zero people in it. Opéra is a busy station and stating in front of a monument and taking your picture is just a thing we humans do; as such, I spent about 30 minutes waiting for an instant that would be clear enough.
