Photographer's Note

Today I post another photograph from the Egyptian section of the Louvre museum in Paris.

About the exhibit
Unfortunately I neglected to note down anything about these interesting figurines. However there were probably around 50 of them assembled in a cabinet in the "Le Livre des Morts" (book of deaths) room. They were all around 3 or 4 inches tall.

Their vivid blue colour and orderly presentation drew me to them instantly.

Technical details about the photograph

Shot at ISO1600, hence the 'grain' (noise) :)

Increase in contrast using a standard S curve although the highlights were increased less than I reduced the shadow detail. No adjustments were made to the mid-tones.

Saturation in the red and yellow channels was increased slightly to bring out the brown/gold painting on the figures.

Resized and sharpened for posting.
