It´s my last photo from my recent visit to Kolumba museum.I know the quality is not the best(I had to increase ISO value to 800),but I still like the mood of the scene created by the light.
Actually the whole museum was a great place for someone who likes simple architectural forms and unique,atmospheric light.
I hope you´ll like it.

du bon N&B, avec cette scène simple prise dans le musée.Bonne présence des deux visiteurs entourrant les tableaux.
Le sol brillant offre de bons effets de reflets.

THis is a very, very interesting photograph!
For a still shot, there is a great sense of movement as the figure appears to be walking on water!
B&W was a good choice, the concentration is on the images and the composition.
Have a lovely Sunday,

outstanding composition. Love this 'dream-like' composition. Like the transformation in monochrome. It suits in no-colour. Great reflection achieved. Sharp shot, maintained the light very well. Very good framing. Tfs.

Witaj dear Krzysztof
Fantastic Black n White photo, almost like we're getting 2 for the price of 1. They look like they're walking on water. Superb reflections, excellent symmetry and great minimalism. I'm a big fan of your B&Ws and this is a good example of why that is.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely day
smarcell (19963) 2013-08-18 2:41
A nice way to take pictures in a museum, where people play a role in the image. Nice minimalism too.
I am not sure about the way you put the horizontal line, but the result is anyway good

Interesujacy kadr z muzeum Kolumba.
Dobra ostrosc i piekne odbicia, podoba sie zdjecie w b&w.

Hello Krzysztof - What impresses me here is the subtle graduation from dark to light across the frame and the way the man's white t-shirt is illuminated and contrasts with the BG and the woman's trousers reverse the situation on the lighter side of the frame. Minimal and subtle where each element plays its part to great effect. Well managed and I see no sign of grain here, your result is smoothly flawless. have a great day. Rosemary

Another big smile from me on this, what a brilliant effect that the man is walking across water, such is the soft ripple of the reflection of the paintings. A perfectly symmetrical view too the people on each side balance the whole scene out perfectly. Its a great angle too, as it looks as if the lady on the right is holding that crucifix. The light is really beautiful, and somewhat symbolic. The lady on right, beside the cross and bathed in light, while the man on the left has his back to the cross and walks into darkness.
Of course, I am seeing things that are not there, but I always love a shot that makes me think :)
Black and white was the perfect choice here too, setting a dramatic and artistic mood, perfect compliment to the museum.

A very bold b/w picture, taken with good timing and an awareness of the importance of space. I like the way your own picture reflects the minimalistic expressions on the wall. I like the way the shadowy left side gives way to the bright right. The only jarring aspect is the cross so close to the woman's shoulder. But overall, the tones are very gentle and the capture of the light and the atmosphere is excellent.
timecapturer (37068) 2013-08-18 5:05
like this! Art imitating art and you have such a creative eye for the use of B&W in this context. It is so simple and yet evocatively imaginative. A conceptual and effective piece of magnificent imagery! Congratulations!
Enjoy a peaceful Sunday - Brian.
abmdsudi (32505) 2013-08-18 6:03
Expressive composition, the elements blend together neatly merging people interaction and graphic elements and the glasssy reflection adds the strength and contrast Effective indoor shot, striking and harmonious aptly works in mono. Well taken, Congrats
ikeharel (44023) 2013-08-18 6:32
The quality is fine, Krzysztof, need not to worry about that, the polished smooth floor creat a feel of walking on a watered area. Perfect showing this effect.
Two figures on sides gave life to the relatively empty hall around three paintings. Nice photo indoor's.
ourania (18632) 2013-08-18 7:07
this is a very intriguing and captivating photo. It's great that you've used the art and the visitors for your own artistic creation, that you've created an elegant image and a short story and that you're giving a creative role to the viewer as well. I love how the light is graduating softly and effectively across the frame. The art and the people stand out superbly in this timeless ambiance inviting the viewer to make connections. I also like the depth offered by the reflections. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
bayno (18334) 2013-08-18 10:26
metaphysical Snap, perfect edit and the conversion to monochrome for this image, light handled masterfully and Camera set at best, excellent work, I really like...
have a good evening,
macjake (45588) 2013-08-18 10:26
yes, i like it alot.
maybe one of your best actually!
it has a true surreal type of atmosphere to it.
its as if the man on the left is walking on water!
awesome feel and look to it, bravo my friend
siudzi (27757) 2013-08-18 11:37
Świetna scena! Doskonale wypatrzona oraz zrealizowana. Światło rzeczywiście odegrało tu ważna role i jest mocnym punktem tego zdjęcia. Świetny efekt wizualny osiągnięty. Bardzo mi się podoba.
jcpix (6544) 2013-08-18 12:55
Ahhh yes, I've been anxiously awaiting this one to get posted here. :) You already know how much I like this shot, but I'll say it again none the less...outstanding! This exemplifies life imitating art, and doing so in a black & white format pushes it even further along that ideal. This pretty much covers the definition of artistic! I can't put my finger on it, but there's something surreal about the imagery.
I love how the light fades from side to side, emphasizing the atmosphere and contradiction. One person in motion and one person resting still, both looking in different directions, couldn't have been better played out to express the contrast. Stunningly simplified to render a most impressive and poignant effect. Without doubt, one of my favorites from your collection! It really is compelling and sparks an immediate reaction of the senses. Brilliant image my friend, a truly defining shot! Compliments are in order. :) Have a pleasant day ahead.
limielski (2571) 2013-08-18 13:04
O to mi sie podoba szczególnie. Swiatło jest faktycznie niesamowite
Dwie postacie idealnie tworza kompozycje. Czerń i biel współgraja tu przeplatajac sie wzajemnie tworząc niesamowity klimat - popaa sie troche w zadumę.
adidas5nb (2901) 2013-08-18 22:16
well that is some shot.great choice for b n w.love the gradual decrease in the brightness right to left.fantastic light management.

Znakomite zdjecia z tego muzeum. czarno-biała opcja znakomicie sie tu sprawdza. osiagnąłeś niezwykly nastrój. istotne sa tutaj te postaci i ich odbicia. Jaka tam musi byc niezwykła posadzka, ze takie sa efekty. Gratulacje!
Wydaje mi sie, ze byłam kiedys w tym muzeum, ale przeczytałam w Googlu że teraz jest nowy budynek.
Pozdrawiam i miłego tygodnia zyczę

Lep pogled na unutrasnjost muzeja i trenutak ...
Dobra kompozicija, lepo pokazana unutrasnjost i trenutak sa refleksima.
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lep refleks.
Imajte lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela.
Nice view of the interior of the museum and the second ...
Good composition, beautiful interior and demonstrated a moment of reflection.
A good time recording and contrast, nice reflection.

I love the simplicty of your composition. The light management is excellent too and makes a good ambience.
Cricri (92185) 2013-08-19 3:56
Une sensation de silence qui règne dans le musée, le sol si reluisant comme de l'eau, donnant de magnifiques reflets, les personnes sont bien cadrer entre les peintures, belle réalisation
cornejo (22530) 2013-08-19 5:11

impossibile non complimentaris per questo scatto eccellente nel quale luce e riflessi creano una atmosfera magica in una composizione essenziale e perfetta.
Ottimo l'uso del bianco e nero che si addice a perfezione allo scatto colto in maniera sublime.
Bravissimo. Uno scatto perfetto!
Ciao e buona serata

excellent the created atmosphere in the interior of Kolumba museum,with the reflections to make the scene even more effective.The two people are placed perfect in the frame with the light management to be superb.
PaulVDV (17273) 2013-08-21 12:20
A shot in a museum that looks like a picture of a lake in the fog. The floor looks really like if it was water.
Very beautiful with the people at both sides of the art works.
I really like it!
Best regards, Paul

imponujace zdjecie. Udalo Ci sie wspaniale uchwicic the moment z tymi ososbami po obu stronach obrazow. Wspaniala symetria, odbicie oraz tez niesamowite robi wrazenie krzyz po prawej stronie. Kompozycja jest niesamowita, zdumiewajaco piekna. Wspaniala praca, podoba mi sie takze w kolorze B&W. Super decyzja. Moje gratulacje.
mcmtanyel (5249) 2013-08-21 20:20
I love the balance of the composition, the simplicity of the image, the symmetry introduced by the slightly distorted reflections. I don't know what you mean by "the quality is not the best," it looks just fine to me.
Indrasish (2351) 2013-08-22 6:25
Sorry for my delay critique.. Excellent capture Krzysztof.. Like the composition and the Superb BW mode..
The reflections of this two persons create the original mood of this bw version.. Just wonderful.. Superb image quality too.. Very well done..
This one goes to my favorites..
Good evening from Kolkata and wish you all the best..
adramad (30925) 2013-08-22 14:57
The scene is fabulous and you must be very pleased with it, I love how light and shadow play in the conception of the image, the superb reflexes are another attraction for the superb result of the composition, the characters are another important element of all the lady that placement, at the time of capture the photo, it seems that lle the crucifix in hand.
It's a great job my friend, and I love it.
Ideal viewing on B & W, which gives a nice range of grays.
Good brightness and sharpness.
Have a good night.
jurek1951 (37040) 2013-08-22 23:31
dobra B&W fotka,super ostrosc i kadr,pozdrawiam
annjackman (15533) 2013-08-22 23:35
This is a fabulous minimalistic picture. The shine on the floor gives the impression that the two people are walking on water. I like the way that one person is looking towards you and one is walking away suggesting no connection between them. The high iso and the b/w conversion has worked very well. A very well crafted image.
Kind Regards, Ann
mjw364 (6142) 2013-08-23 2:30
Great tonal range and great reflections - creative. I like it a lot!
jhm (127995) 2013-08-23 4:25
800 ISO can not are a mistake, for a black and white picture.
I see almost no grainy on these picture.
Almost a mirror picture through the nice reflective floor.
Sharpness and clarity make these picture very attractive
Very well composition, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
PiotrF (2380) 2013-08-23 12:27
Prawdziwa perełka fotograficzna. Stworzyłeś znakomita atmosfere we wnętrzu tego muzeum. Bardzo dobry kadr, który zapamietuje się na długo
Hansaphotos (6071) 2013-08-24 7:46
Oh, we like it, that`s for sure! A fine minimalistic scene beautifully captured. The polished floor looks like water. Amazing lighting and interesting how we goes from a very dark left part to the light in the right part. Another thing that strikes me, and enhance the powerful visual impact, is how the human presence balances with the lines of the painting, mainly in a vertical direction. The cross is a nice addition. Excellent work my friend.
Enjoy your WE.
Best regards, Erling
williewhistler (9853) 2013-08-24 13:59
it`s always pleasing to view a photograph has that little bit of extra interest so this is a sheer delight for me,the choice of mono helps to emphasise the delightful shapes and patterns without distraction.
A super shot.

rigoletto (32758) 2013-08-27 7:09
modern art galleries are exceptional places for such creative photos. wonderful light management, contrast and minimalist composition. even the cross on the wall and the number 3 may lead to some religious readings. i love how they all look like reflected on water.
dkmurphys (42493) 2013-08-29 2:37
Lovely artistic capture. I like the result of your perfect management of light, very well taken.
Have a good day.

Widze, ze mam zaleglosci, od wyjazdu do Polski rzadko bywalam na TE.
Swietna praca, niemal surrealistyczna. Te odbicia w podlodze sprawiaja niesamowite wrazenie, poglebione nietypowa symetryczna kompozycja.
Pozdrawiam serdecznie i zycze milego pobytu na Malcie. :)
