I'm really enjoying your samples from the museum. The East Timor horse is a favorite.

Museums are great places to catch reflections, as you proved it by sharing this lovely picture... Nicely done !

JM said...

@'Tsuki: Actually too many unwanted reflections when shooting through glass... Had to delete most of the photos I took there. :-)

These are so beautiful!

Jacob said...

Well, China is a big country, so it makes sense they have "big pieces," right? ;-)

These are very striking also and you did a super job photographing them. So much intricacy and detail and color...

For a moment I really thought there were four of them...

Duh. I'm sitting saying, "Where are the reflections?" I found them! Nice indoor shot for a rainy day.

Excellent reflection of their backs.

I like the reflections here, they work well. Pieces like this make me yearn to know their history - who owned them, what was their life like, etc.

Stunning.

Excellent job of shooting around and through glass. Hard work. MB
