I haven't posted a fountain photo for a while, so here we go. This is from Paris and is the only black fountain (or set of statues or individual statues, for that matter) that I've ever seen. That makes it much harder to get the exposure correct since the camera reads black as gray. Underexpose to keep things dark (and, if you're shooting digital, check your replay and histogram to make sure you have things where you want them).
You may notice, also, that things seem a bit misty/foggy. That all comes from the fountain itself.
