Carrying on with my visit to Tate Modern. Taken from inside the Klein exhibition gallery through a gap in the walls, and V2 is just a view of a wall and a couple of people. I think I've scraped the bottom of barrel with this trip now so hopefully I'll have something different soon.

It's our nativity service this afternoon at the riding school but despite my lobbying frantically to help out on the mulled wine stall I'm on teas and coffees again. Those wine women guard their pitches with corsets of iron. Grin

Thanks for popping by.

They all look rather bemused by what they are looking at, Chris, especially V.1. Smile Carol

I like the reflection in V2. But V1 is the composition. Beautifully balanced, three-dimensional geometry, different planes interacting. The painting in the background is almost like an additional room opening up. Plus that seated man's wonderful pose.

The balance in V2 is most appealing. I wish people - especially the younger generation - would learn to stifle their yawns for the benefit of us oldies who lack sleep!

V1 is excellent: it has echoes of Ken's street photographs with people passing by advertising posters and mannequins, with the added dimension of the architectural frame. It is as if we were looking into one of those receding-mirror images, with the difference that each recession is not identical but different. That's my understanding at least.

Brilliant.

Regards
Bill

Thank you so much Moira. I think I'll hire you as my editor as you seem to see things that have passed me by. I just snap away.
Unexpected and very welcome. Smile

Two great viewpoints and captures, Chris - I like how you've got the viewers reflections caught in the centre hanging picture. Like 'em both though, so half a vote for each Wink
Hope you enjoy your nativity service - though sounds like you won't be getting tipsy on the mulled wine! Grin

Two superbly different images each with many unique sell points and the opportunity for dim wits like me to try and come up with suitable anecdotes in my spare time. "I really must get out more~"

Superb photography

Great work Chris, V1 for me I love the layers in this image, walking us through the scene and into picture in the background. Wonderful.

V1 for me - added depth from the picture behind the seated man - almost a tunnel effect.

Thank you very much to Albert and Mark. Totally amazed at the response to this image. Smile

I hope you enjoy the exhibition Ann. Did you see the TV programme on Klein? It was so interesting. If you didn't you might find the actual exhibition rather more interesting than I did.

Both of these are excellent Chris. Like them both, the reflection in v2 is what makes it special. But v1 is my pick of these two. Nice use of framing, and that display case made me look twice - at first I though it was an inset in the floor (we have one of those at a local museum!).
