Natural History from above

By barrywebb  
Taken a couple of weeks ago whilst we were at the Natural History Museum to see the excellent wildlife exhibition. I went high up and held the camera hard against the stone banister so as to use a 1 second exposure. The girl in blue was a gift as she stayed completely still for at least 10 minutes while I was there taking shots. I did have to wait a while to get a central position, whilst the tourist finished doing their selfies! ...but I got the image I wanted.

No need to explain why I like it. I just got in touch with my feelings as I viewed it. POTW territory. Full stop.

A very good attempt at something different. As you say "the girl in blue" makes a difference to the overall effect.

Love this. The static figures hold it together, keep it grounded. And the overhead view gives an analytical objectivity, like looking at humanity under the microscope.
A superb image!

Brilliant composition Barry I liken it to a lot o bees moving around at high speed gathering information or
nectar which ever you prefer.

The first thing I thought of on seeing this was a Lowry painting. A wonderfully crafted piece of work. Allan
