    My mom dragged me to LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art), and I decided to bring my D40 along. These were my best shots. The downside of this museum is that the lighting is terrible, and they do not allow flash. Also, having a d40, my ISO performance isn't the greatest it can be. This caused mucho noise, however I did whatever I could to reduce the noise. Tell me if you like these shots:

    Really good examples for "no flash - no tripod" photos! I like each and every one of these. Even better with the white balance fixed, of course! :D
    By the way: did the "no tripods" part apply here, too?
    And did you take some with a 50mm prime?

    No tripod. I used an 18-55mm kit lens. I could only bring a small bag, I didn't want to lug around too much. It contained my D40, my wallet, a bottle of water, and my Nintendo DS. Thats all I could bring.

    Update:

    I converted some images to Black and White. Do you think they're better or worse than their color counterparts?

    I think they do! Good conversions.
    Pity about the one statue's foot, though. Awww!

    I don't like the B&W, though more on principle. The artist made the painting in color for a reason, and it should be reproduced in color, as well. B&W takes away from that.

    Interesting. The paintings are the reason I chose those two for BW conversion, because there is a noticeable difference. In the statue shots, they would look pretty much the same. I went for the old fashion look with the BW paintings.

    My opinion is it is silly to shoot pictures of other people's art and then ask opinions of your pictures.
