A a guy gets a second glance at Tate Modern.

Very noisy and I couldn't match the wall colours either. I left the camera on auto ISO as every gallery has different levels of light in it. Still, better a grainy picture than no picture.

V1 stands on its own, for a brief moment I did a double take . Could the reflection have gone solo?

Superb opportunist captures, Chris.
Did you consider b&w?

No, I didn't. Perhaps I should have done as I was having trouble getting the wall the same colour in both shots. And I did go out thinking b/w this morning too. Duh, the little grey cells are getting greyer by the minute. Grin

My double take lasted more than a moment - although once I'd twigged, V2 was easier. Very well seen indeed - and I envy your reactions with this one.

On the ball here Chris, excellent moment. Regarding your comment on my image about Battersea, yesterday was the last day to see it like that as they started Phase One todaySad
Will be posting a few soon.

Your timing and eye for shots are awesome Grin

I sooo agree. I always set the cam to auto ISO when indoors. I'd rather get the shot and see what I can do about it later...than have nothing to do anything about!

I learn a lot about timing and candid photography from you...thanks for that Smile

Well, they both look good to me Chris, and it's no big deal that the wall colours don't match Wink However, if it bothers you, may I suggest using the Eye Dropper Tool in removing colour casts, which in my PS Elements is under Enhance>Adjust Colour>Remove Colour Cast. This is assuming you're colour balancing the Jpegs. If you click say in the top right for example it adjusts the colour slightly. Repeating this on the other image in the same area it will give you near as damn it identical colour walls! As I see you're shooting in Raw, there is an Eye Dropper tool in the Raw converter also, which can be used in a similar way. Hope this is of some help! Wink
Anyway, two well seen images here, and I go for V1 as my fave Smile

Thanks Trev. I'll have a go at that. I've had this problem before but I'm not very good with the eyedropper tool and never really got the hang of it but I can see it could come in very useful. Smile
