4.08p.m. - The Denon wing on the ground floor was the last stop of our visit to the Louvre as by then both our legs were already so tired. We enjoyed the sculptures here and I noticed this interesting scene of the lady with her reflection amongst the sculptures, as if they are also part of the display.
The repetitions further emphasized her curiosity and urge to learn more about the past and to acquire more knowledge.

As I say: A artwork in another artwork. Very well seen and captured and also a decisive moment. Interesting and fine angle of view and what a excelent enquadrement. Good luminosity, fine glass mirroring and reflections. Excelent colors and a great composition.
Very Well done and congratulations.

Nice composition. Very different from the shots usually taken in museums. I like the colors and use of reflections. The inclusion of the girl here is of the best effect.

The mirroring of the young girl and the game with the reflections, make this composition very interesting. Nice idea to play among these beautiful statue.

Hi Aloysius. You sure captured some excellent reflections. If you ran this through a noise filter this shot would be flawless. Very nice one Aloysius!

Hi Aloysius, An interesting shot. I believe that the girl in the picture noticed that you were taking a picture of her :D
A nice indoor shot with good perspective view, interesting reflection and seeing through of the glass cases. Nicely done.

It's very beautiful and you managed the light and reflections perfectly. And you avoid the blur despite the exposure time !

She kept an eye on you! A perfect reflection in a very instructive surrounding. There is a great and beautiful contrast between the left and the right part of the picture with the girl as uniting element.

Great picture of the inside of this famous museum! Very well composed; the glass at the right hand side is very nice and especially the reflection of the girl is great!
