This is a photo I took at the weekend when I visited the Natural History Museum for the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition. I've been planning this shot for a while and I am quite happy with the results.
I think the Natural History Museum in South Kensington is probably one of London's most impressive buildings. I took this shot on the second floor looking over the central hall. This is one of London's most popular museums and this was taking out peak time (around 1pm) The place was packed but I used a 10 stop ND filter (B&W 3.0) on a 10 minute exposure so the visitors of the museum appear invisible - cool aye? I did a small bit of touching up in Photoshop to remove a few distractions ( a sign on the steps and two signs in the hall;  two benches next to the steps and;  the tail of the Diplodocus dinosaur that's exhibited in the central hall. I tried to remove the poster to the left and right but my photoshop skill aren't good enough
We'll I'd be grateful for any comments you have.
