    My daughter refused to go to the beach on Sunday (I've been there 100 times already) so, after a brief negotiation, we settled on the Metropolitan Museum. This time it was marked by finding the greatest parking space for Met - the very corner of 83rd & 5th. The amount of people entering museum at 9:45 was staggering, but there is a small entrance to the left of the main stairs that always seems to be empty :smile:
    Here're the pictures, please CC. E-P1 + 20/1.7, 9-18 and Konica 57/1.4

    Yes, gotta try to crop out the frame more. I actually was trying to get some wall on the outside of door frames but tilted camera a bit every time :frown:, so had to crop it out.

    I like the framing with the door frames, but center it a bit more. Other than that wonderful set. Any more?:smile:

    Anne looking at Perseus and Medusa. After that visit she's been interested in Greek myths and can now figure out who an ancient statue is of half the times.

    Hello,

    Very nice set. Personally I find these to be quite appealing. The framing is adding a nice intrinsic quality to the image that holds my interest, and is visually stimulating. It provides a sense of there. I find I enjoy #3 the most of this particular 3 shot set.

    For my taste, I'd not change a thing.

    Alan

    Personally I like the door frames. Otherwise you get the same old boring museum pictures.

    The door frames gives me a "window-into-a-window" type of view...

    They are all very nice, but like #1 best. Very interesting "frame inside frame inside frame" composition.

    Agreed, the frames are awesome, but I bet you wanted to punch the person with the cell phone cluttering up number 4...

    Nah... You're right, I thought I had it, but the lady moved in just a bit... On a busy day it's difficult to get a nice shot of a room with people standing the way you want, so I firmly decided not to get frustrated :smile: Made 6 shots of this same place (only 2 acceptable). I liked the fact that 3 colors of the walls and 2 portraits are visible.
