Facial Expressions 2

By PaulLiley  
Thanks for all your comments yesterday. here is a more general view of the plaster cast heads at Kelvingrove Art gallery and Museum, Glasgow, If ever you are in Glasgow I would really recommend a visit. During World War II most of Kelvingrove's valuable works were housed at secret locations around the country. This proved very fortunate as a bomb landed in nearby Kelvin Way in 1941, shattering 50 tons of window glass and damaging many of the plaster casts in the Sculpture Court.

The exhibits are so varied there is something for everyone and admission is Free. Paintings by famous artists, Wildlife, dinosaurs, History, archaeology and loads more including a real Spitfire. It's an enormous architecturally interesting, sandstone building which houses amazing exhibits. No flash on this shot to avoid bounce off the heads, handheld and underexposure compensation to get the exposure right on the heads. Upped the ISO to 2000.
This is not my usual genre of subject matter.

An excellent image of these heads Paul.
This was one of the first places we went o with the Beginners Group when I joined my camera club
over five years ago. I wouldn't have known then anything about compensation.
You've captured these better than any image I've seen before.

This is a venue that I know so well and have often seen these masks but have never photographed.
You have captured this display so well.
And also the intro adds extra interest and as you say, Kelvingrove is so worth a visit, there being so much to see.
