A Tuesday Post - Exhibition Building and the Range of Light.

Went to the museum over the weekend to see a Tutankhamun exhibition – really very interesting, although it was a shame that the famous death mask was still in Egypt! If you happen to be in Melbourne you should go – but you need to go early!

The museum is opposite the Royal Exhibition Building – which as far as I know is the last of the huge Victoria ear display buildings. As has become normal we had has some rain, and I found this reflection of the building. The exposure was a bit of a nightmare, but I got a shot I was happy with in the end. As you can see – there is “normal” light on the building, the reflection is a deep shade and the sun is flaring a highlight off the spire of the building. I think I took about 25 variations of exposure to get one I was happy with.

You can see my most recent post on my other blog by clicking the Paying Ready Attention button on the RHS of the screen.

This post was originally intended to be for MWT - but the meme has been closed down due to the untimely death of one of its hosts. Hope people will stay in touch and keep visiting each other.


  1. love the sparkle at the top. :)

  2. The Tutankhamun exhibit is sure making the rounds. I'm assuming it's the same one that was in Toronto a while ago.

    That's a wonderful shot of the Exhibition building.

  3. A great post and a very beautiful image. Love the composition. Well done.
