British Museum - canon 20d w/17-40

The Great Court at the British Museum is famous for its beautiful roof design. I didn't have a lens wide enough to capture it but I loved the parade of heads going up and down the stairs.

    I think this is much more original than a wide angle shot of the entire roof would have been. I love the b&w too.

    Great tones. The sky is brilliant.

    I too like this better than just a wide-angle capture of the roof design. The reflections of the roof in the glass add interest and the parade of people provides scale so the viewer can sense just how immense the ceiling is.

    Well seen image, love the moody sky too. Great shot that wouldn't be the same without the heads.

    This screams classical in every sense. The lines and reflections have graceful curves of every sort, and the people provide for the scale.

    Amazing shot. A true work of art. The curves, the tones, the sky, everything. The people add a sense of humor that just put it over the top.

    A lovely rendition of this subject. I especially love the heads and torsos above the railing.

    A classic architectural composition, with beautiful tonality. The dark, nearly sillouetted figures really complete this. Nice job!

    The heads do look great, but I also like the reflections in the windows. It's a great photo.
