Challenge: Reflections Without Mirrors (Classic Editing)
Camera: Jenoptik JD1300F
Location: Great Court, British Museum, London
Date: Sep 28, 2002
Aperture: f/3.6
Shutter: 1/125 sec
Galleries: Cityscape, Architecture
Date Uploaded: Sep 29, 2002

Taken late morning in the British Museum's Great Court which was built to celebrate the new millenium. Having not visited the British Museum since childhood I found the new addition stunning and it struck me as a wonderful opportunity to get some shots for both my new photography evening class and the DPC Reflections challenge!

Brilliant patterns. I love the fact that you chose an unconventional 'reflection'.

great perspective..
this is quite hypnotic...the angles on the building really do make a dramatic impact..
tones and cotrast are spot on..very nice work...

superb composition ...i wonder a wee tad about the color balance...but perhaps the blusih cast makes it more seamless with the sky..anyhow love this shot! :)

Definitely one of my favourite shots of yours, and one I remember from looking at your husband's entry. Has a certain 'sheen' of quality. I think maybe a little lack of crispness may have cost you a higher score.

I like the patterns... slightly different composition would have qualified this photo for the negative space challenge as well. -8

I love the way the reflections fits in the window. Your lighting is really super too. I wonder what it is we are looking at. I also wondered about the title, not sure exactly how it fits. Overall a great shot. DPz

British Museum? I was there not long ago :o) I bet I know who took this if that's it! I love that room. Cool shot. The reflection isn't as strong an element as in some of the other pics tho.

This is a very striking photo, I almost missed the reflections of the grid in the windows. Composition is great.
