My thanks go to Otto von Munchow for setting up the poll and adding mine to the list of contenders.
Why not take a look and vote.
I am pleased to say my blog has now over 1000 followers, so its not a little blog any more.
These statues were taken in the back of a gallery in The Hague while I was over there to do a recci for a workshop in The Netherlands next year.This day was an open city day and so with a little negotiation I was allowed to take pictures.
So the the advice here for photographers is “if you don’t ask you don’t get”, don’t assume the answer will be no when asking for permission to take photographs.
These sculptures were not the main event, these were the previous show that had been moved to the back of the gallery to make room for the brightest and best. So they are not presented as a exhibits just a conglomeration of figures and shapes.
What appeals to me here is the body language of the foreground statute, there seems to be a realization that the show is over and an uncertain future awaits.
Photography wise these were taken on auto ISO at 3200, f4, 1/60 ish. I am quite close to the figures so the depth of field with a 105mm lens will be limited at f4.There was a minimal crop in the post processing to remove distractions right on the edge of the frame – more than likely in the 2% that Canon does not allow you to see in the viewfinder.
A big hello to all the new followers of my blog this week.
