The Arc de Triomphe de Etoile is one of the most famous monuments in Paris, France, standing at the western end of the Champs-Elysees at the centre of Place Charles de Gaulle, formerly named Place de l'Etoile.
Being the center of a multiple lane roundabout, it is quite interesting to see the heavy traffic circle around this monnument. I chose a long exposure, being lucky to catch a glimpse of the rush hour on the street, while having the Arch standing tall and quiet above it. It took four minutes to shoot this vision and several hours of respective processing.
