the atrium of the British museum...the fancy roof and the building (library) in middle were designed by the famous architect Norman Foster...
the 'ghost' effect was due to the stitching. this picture is composed of 7 shots, mainly 'cus my lens was not wide enough.

love this shot, it's so symmetric it almost looks like a mirror image, captivating effect. and those "ghosts" add to the enigma of the scene, I definetly like them. but above all I like the composition you've chosen with the roof creating a perfect 3D effect. excellent shot.

An amazing shot Cheuk and so cleverly crafted together. The symmetry, graphism and stark cool colours not too mention the ghosts,make this an unusual piece of work.

This is a great photo and I really would like to know the real work flow, from picture taking to the final stitch. The ghosts are terrific and the sense of slow motion is absolutely stunning. Well done.

A very impressive atrium! A good, high pov, with excellent sharpness & realistic colour. I like the graphic, repetitive, geometric patterns in the roof. Tfs!

Already see many photos of this place but this are for me the best. Therefore the effect, the space to be bigger of the one than habitually is photographed makes of photo one of the best ones.

this is really amazing!
I love the "ghost" effects, how did u create those effects?

Thanks to the stitching, you've created a very original shot, especially as there is not a lot of choice in view points. The ghosts passing through the "live ones" creates a great atmosphere. The "A New World" sign is nice and sharp and creates an excellent focal point.
