Firstly, a big thankyou to Pam (mashwood10) and Kurt (KurtSkeels) for their User Awards on my Mottisfont Sundial.

I love Hinton Ampner for its collections of fine Georgian furniture, hard stone ornaments, ceramics and inlaid furniture, but most of all for the exquisite and unique collection of rare and highly prized minerals, the blue john and marble, and particularly the furniture inlaid with marble mosaics.
This classical marble bust caught my attention because it was framed by the mirror and was reflected within it too.

This is in the Entrance Hall where there is a stunning marbled floor and sweeping staircase.
This elegant country manor is modelled and immaculately decorated in the Georgian style. The house suffered a catastrophic fire in 1960, and was lovingly rebuilt by the last owner, Ralph Dutton.

3 versions, all separate frames.
No flash and no tripods allowed.

Pamela.

It sounds a lovely place to visit Pamela - I like v1 for the intricate patterns around the mirror and v2 for the balance of the composition.

I have to admit that the beautiful mirror caught my eye, Pamela, rather than the bust Wink I think V.1 pips it to the post, but only just, all excellent captures. Carol

It's just the sort of place I would like to visit, certainly judging by both your intro aa well as these versions of the bust in front of that gilded mirror.
Like all three versions and am torn over a favourite so it will need to be 1/3 vote to each.

excellent set. V1 is my favourite. I like the way the head in the mirror seems to be admiring the painting reflection.

That has to be one of the most ornate and beautiful mirror frames I've ever seen Smile A very well captured set, Pamela, but V1 has to be my fave, for that frame Wink

I think V1 has it all Pamela - I like the bust and its reflection and the full view of that decorated mirror is superb.
