Fantastic shot of the beautiful city of Paris at night by my friend John Niravong. The photograph was taken from the 56th floor observation deck of the Maine-Montparnasse Tower, a popular destination for visitors seeking unrivaled views of the majestic city below.

Tour Maine-Montparnasse (Maine-Montparnasse Tower), also commonly named Tour Montparnasse, is a 210-metre (689 ft) tall office skyscraper located in Paris, France, in the area of Montparnasse. Constructed from 1969 to 1972, it was the tallest skyscraper in France until 2011, when it was surpassed in height by the Tour First (231 metres / 758 feet). It is currently the eleventh tallest building in the European Union. [Source]
