Louvre, Pyramid, & Water

Sometimes photographers get lucky and other times we work hard to get the shot.  This photograph was a combination of the two.  I was out shooting with my Nikon when other people were eating dinner and enjoying Paris' nightlife.  Hanging around the Louvre at the "right" time was key.  I was lucky because virtually all the Parisians and tourists cleared out of the Louvre's courtyard.  The resulting image is near absent of people, save for a few shadows and blurry figures in the distance.  Diligence put me in the right place to take advantage of my surroundings, and what wonderful surroundings they were.
