I had an unfair advantage in that I live close to a museum with an enormous skeleton in its grand, well lit lobby. Then, when I visited it I was blessed with the adorable child playing at its feet. Sometimes it is better to be lucky.

This is the Titanosaur at the Field Museum. It is the biggest dinosaur that has yet been discovered. It's 28 feet tall and 122 feet long, and this young girl was enthralled by it.

I love the "Where's Sue?" sign.

Uh..... Right there by the dinosaur foot!

Congrats on a terrific and fortuitous image for your blue!

I still adore this shot and told daughter where it placed tonight. Her response was " Like, well yeeeeah, I told you sooooo, that is great, yaaaay, well done (as any 17.8 hormonal year girl rolls her eyes, with a ton of sarcasm)))

But then she said "" Did he clone out those people yet, cus our Charlie and other kids would love a print on their wall and he should send a print to the museum as well, they will love it, with or without the people in it"

This is a hormonal 17.8 year old setting the bar, high and giving you a 10 star thumbs up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cherish it!! lol

Well done Mark, I am an old women and I love dinosaurs, this is a really fabulous photo that tugs at everyone heartstrings.

I love this shot, and was telling my daughter about it. And then showed her. The first thing she said, was it was fantastic but how she wished the other people where not in it. That was my exact thoughts as well. I know you can not do it for this standard editing, but if you can clone those people out, you will have a shot that would be hung in any dinosaur gallery and people would pay money for it, if this was my shot, i would do it, just so I could hang it on my wall. As it is , it is still a bloody fantastic shot!!
