Where's my Mummy?

By TrevBatWCC    
First of all, I like very much to thank again: achieverswales (Trev), pluckyfilly (Ann), bobsblues (Rob), alsoppdigitalart (John), Chant 57 and wasper (Thair) for their User Awards on my previous upload 'Sala a Croce Greca' . I was amazed when I got up yesterday morning and checked EPZ - I've never had so many UAs on a single upload before! Wink I was especially chuffed as it is one of my favourite indoor images from my Rome trip Smile
Well, found this Mummy in the er, Egyptian section of the Vatican Museum! Founded by Gregory XVI in 1839 and located at the northern end of the lower floor, the Egyptian Museum displays artefacts brought from Egypt primarily by Roman emperors. It was very tricky to shoot, with lots of reflections all over the place, even shooting at an angle. The lighting was quite dim, but didn't want to use flash, which would have made matters worse, so upped the ISO to 1600. After much tweaking, dodging, burning, cloning, noise reduction, I managed to get it look something like reasonable! Smile

Single Raw image processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Photomatix Pro and Photoshop Elements 11

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging.

Many congrats. firstly on the success of your last image, Trev: very well done.
And what a fascinating image today.......I think we all find ancient Egypt and it's artefacts quite engrossing, so it's especially good to see what treasures the Vatican Museum has in store.
I have to be honest and say I did not know the Vatican actually had a museum, but from what you have shown already, it should be a must for any visitor.

Unlike most people I actually like reflections in the glass. They add so much context to an image like this. Excellent capture.

Very worthy of all your efforts I am sure without mention no-one would have noticed your professional touchSmile great work Trevor.
When I was but a mere child we had mummies in the local library I have often wondered what happened to them when they built the new library and moved ship, I always found hem fascinating.
