Openyourap, these are awesome colors on both sides.

Willem please enlighten us on the small people. Great DOF selection btw.

Michael/MRRiley that sure is a contrast to the cathedral in shape and light color. Came right from Mars I assume.

Here's a sculpture which does not necessarily look like one,

I like this piece of art, but I think it's difficult to take a good picture of it, the background is always distracting.

Lorenzo de' Medici (1449-1492) known as "the Magnificent", a bust in terracotta, once painted, possibly from the workshop of Antonio Benintendi and probably based on a life mask. Florence, 1500-1520. In the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, 18 August 2010.

Willem you might take a very fast lens and try to shoot through the middle full open. Otherwise have a white blanket held by two people .-)

It is getting very classic here, so I might chime in.

That shows off the lighting very well. I didn't take my camera to the Ashmolean last time I went, but must remember next time. That place is fantastic now, after the refurbishment.

A couple of statues here from the gardens of the Bishop's Palace in Wells, UK.
One is bronze, I think; and the other is varnished wood, which makes for some great contrasty reflections.

that's because black is the mandatory uniform I'm as guilty as most owning hardly anything that isn't black (with the exception of a ridiculously neon orange sweater)
