    Hallo, Michel,
    I've been to Père Lachaise 20 years ago, but at the time I didn't have an eye for the wonderful statues...

    This photo is just brilliant.
    How did you get the lighting.
    Was it just there like this and you saw it and realised how special it was? Or did you set up something to bring about this light?

    I visited Père Lachaise this spring, it's a remarkable place to be at. I didn't have a camera back then, though. :(

    The picture is incredibly beautiful, and it truly makes justice to Père Lachaise. Do you have any more shots from the same visit?
