You know Hugh, I'd have liked to have seen just one figure (in black to contrast with the white) on the lower walkway, but then it would have been a totally different image.
As it is I like it, with the kids messing around. The only thing that doesn't really work for me is the woman with the raised camera - it would have been better without her.

looks like the guy looking down just dropped his camera ;)
Actually (sorry, Ben) I like it BECAUSE of the woman holding up the camera, she adds a lot of dynamics into the photo (and colour due to her pullover), so to me it´s fun and it´s cool.

Hi Hugh, love the calesthenics, wonderful counterpoint. It's a shame you couldn't have used a slightly faster shutter speed - looking at the info the lens was already wide open. Like the banding created by the sloping walkways too. Good job, Roberto

Hugh: compositionally great - unsure if the blurrs are working to your advantage here or not. But the composition is superb. regards, c

Very good this one. Nice lines, and lovely pastel colours. The composition with the visitors works very well and in fact, I like the presence of the woman with the hands in opposite direction to the child. The action that is going on in those stairs is quite comic... and so dynamic! I especially applause the baby blue frame that you have used; it matches so nicely the woman’s shirt ;)

Hi Hugh...I like the composition with the people contrasted with the light tones of the museum.

What I like here is the graphics and the dominance of white. It makes the image so crisp and clean. The action of the visitors is fun to look at and well caught, with some frozen in the movement and some blurred, I enjoy particularly the trio on the left side:-) and the variety of colors against the white.

That is great !
Hands up, hands down !
Perfect construction of cadre. And really pleasure for eyes and mind. As it ought to be in museum of art :)))

Very funny composition. Very dynamic and original shot. Great with the one person hanging over the wall.

Love the blur. The soft strands of her hair as she is giggling, the movement of the woman's hand with her digicam, probably also capturing some blur, she likely unintentionally.And the boys, hanging out of the ramps, he cannot help reminding me of St Bartholomew/Michelangelo in the Last Judgement of the Sistine Chapel. The pastel colours are working very nicely against the dark colours. How was the show itself?
