    The proper name should be Louvre Museum (and Palace) though there are versions using the word 'Lourve' it is probably a 'popularisation' of a wrong spelling?

    you try to juxtapose the curvilinear stairway with the angular trusses and framed the two human elements in. IMHO the intention may be an interesting one but the shot is too tightly cropped and looks very flat as an interior shot. the crop cuts away the stairway, making it a framing element rather than the primary object, and it frames an empty white space with trusses running across. the two human elements seem to be 'trying' to give some sense of depth and scale but failed because of the inharmonious coming together of the lines with little shadow details. this seems also to be an inappropriate use of the rules of third as i can't see whether the lower 2/3 is 'supporting' the upper 1/3 or the other way round, both seems just as important, or just as unimportant.
