    Thanks, I had hoped someone would enjoy these shots, as I am sure most people are not into such history.

    thanks everyone! I wanted to brush those dirty teeth Jon, but his/her spirit complained as I was about to use Colgate!

    I was just reading the August contest stuff, and maybe I should have saved one of these for the Still Life topic??

    Too late for these, Raymond, but I am sure you have lots of others that well fit the August contest!

    Great ones!
    I like all museum photos, they are a challenge in so far as you usually must not use a flash.

    That Dionysos, who has apparently paid an arm and a leg to get to all his wine (!) ... it has not done him any good, see? "Performance" will be bad, inebriated as he always is, heehee :blushing::blulsh2:

    My favourite is the inscribed stone - it is a stone? I was going to say parchment at first but took a new look and now think the letters are written on a stone.

    Yes, it is a stone, and thanks!

    I wouldn't use a flash under these conditions, as refections and shadows would ruin most shots, I hand held all of these, 1/4 to 1/30 th shutter speeds, and used the glass of the cabinet to stead my shaky hands!

    The mummy needed a flash, as it was parked directly under another cabinet, in extremely low lighting.. it's just a snapshot for the graveyard guys!
