    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:

    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.
