The cross of Paris

I always like this type of silhouette shots, whether it is by someone else or as in this case by me. I shot this one in Paris near the Place des Vosges. Apart from the usual post-processing with Picasa, I used Photoshop to clean up a couple of irregularities caused by dust or small droplets on the lens.
