Stunningly beautiful and impressive Natural History Museum of London, where many of the collections have great historical and scientific value, such as specimens collected by Charles Darwin.

Impressionnante photo de ce muséum avec une gestion splendide de la lumière...et, en plus, tu as réussi à faire évacuer tout le monde!

How is it possible to get this interior without thousand of visitors in?:) really excellent capture this! Perfectly executed exposure and sharpness gave a superb result for the natural and very well presented place. Symmetry of composition always works here. Bravo!
Have a nice Sunday!

une très belle symétrie avec une lumière magnifique. Un lieu superbe, idéalement désert, et une mise en valeur très réussie. Félicitations.

Je suis impressionné qu'ils t'aient laissé entrer avec le trépied. Ca devient de plus en plus compliqué avec les musées. En tout cas, tant mieux, ça t'a permis d'atteindre les réglages optimums.
Le choix de la symétrie était pertinent et c'est joliment malmené par le raie de lumière qui apporte une plus value certaine côté ambiance.

Terrific picture, Andre. The X-diagonals in the composition is just amazing. Congratulations.

Woooooooooow, this is fantastic photo!!! Apart from the symmetry I like how the beam of light separates lower right corner from top left... Though without people, it's not boring at all as there are many details and I love the play of light and shadows.

I wonder how you where able to take this shot of the beautiful interior of the natural historical museum in London without a soul in view? Did you let yourself being locked in after hours ...
As said, this is stunningly beautiful, the wide view, the open staircases, the light and the colors are all equally amazing.
have a great sunday

What a chance, the museum is just open for you ! Stunning architectural view, which shows all the beauty of this place. The ray of light that diagonally crosses the area adds some special mood.
Good job !

My first - and obvious - question has already been answered by you in reply to Gosia. My other question is whether or not this has seen any HDR processing. It looks like a candidate, but if so, it's been done subtly and with taste. A fine symmetrical composition.

Very good symetric composition that adds graphism to the scene. I love the subtile ray of light that enters into the museum. Good sharpness too.

I cannot believe that you were able to take this amazing photograph without a single person in shot!
Here, the tripod has come into its own, creating that stability for an exceptional, symmetrical composition and a clarity that is outstanding.
The Natural History Museum always conjures up memories of huge dinosaurs and, in some ways, this is like looking inside the frame of a huge dinosaur!
Have a great day,

so that's how you did that... my first thought when I saw this picture was the same - how you could take the picture without the crowds. Beautiful shot with great light and outstanding depth.

That's great !
Very good dominant point of view, good sharp picture with an interesting perspective
A good decisive moment with this nice game of lights

A beautiful symmetrical composition in which you have managed the light extremely well to produce a wonderfully well balanced photograph with excellent strong perspective and delightful light and true colours.
P.S. This picture shows so very well that the recent policy of TE to reduce image sizes to only 790 pixels wide has a very negative effect on the details and sharpness in images. Your original image (as viewed on "beta" TE) is stunningly clear and sharp but, even when reduced by only 10 pixels in width, it loses very much of its sharpness and "punch" on the "new" version of TE.

This interior certainly is impressive. Great POV looking down; the symmetry is wonderful and you handled the lighting perfectly. It was a great idea to gain admission before the crowds. It never hurts to ask - they can only say no. :-) Stepping into this museum must feel like stepping back in time...
macjake (70519) 2014-06-21 16:29
great to hear from you!
so where have you been lately? you havn't been around as much.
Yeah, we just got back from a month long trip to Istanbul, Greece and Italy :)
Oh man, this subject is right up my alley. Its as if you had the entire Museum to yourself, just you and the empty halls.
how did you get a tripod into the museum??? thats almost impossible now adays.
obviously i love the shot and the power/dominance the halls display. wonderful indoor shot Andre.
hopefully we'll see you around
