Let there be light!

When visiting any place be it a museum, some other building or even something out in nature like a field, it is important to look in all directions because not only may you see something different but it can also make for some great photography.

In this case I first saw these chandeliers as we were walking down the steps to the lower level.  I knew I had to stop and take a photo which got a bit twisted as I almost found myself lying on the floor at the bottom of the steps where other people were walking.

I’m not sure if it was my wiggling a bit or if perhaps it was the shape of the ceiling but in post production I just could not get the lights to hang down straight.  If I tried to make them straight then the patterns of the ceiling would look skewed and vice versa.  Maybe it was just the angle I was taking the photo from since I wasn’t directly underneath; who knows!  But no matter,  it is quite an ornate chandelier and ceiling.  Why are so many museum ceilings like that?

Which image appeals more to you – color or black and white? I’d like to hear your opinion.

    I think the color. The blue stands out.

    The wisdom of a photographer! Too many of the rest of us just walk on by and never notice.

    B/w. For the geometry you have to be dead centre which is so difficult.

    I happen to like the B&W the best. And yes photographing ceilings while on stairs can and is very challenging…whoa whoa whoa….

  6. B/W Getting the angle right can be a killer sometimes. You did well with this.

    Both are nice, but I am more partial to the color photo in this case.

  8. I am imagining how you capture the ceiling in the middle of busy people walking around you 😀 Spot on, Teri! I like both – the image is well captured. I love the blue colored ceiling though, it is so pretty!
