Taken on a day trip to the new Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, where the allow photography!

Taken on my Canon A570 compact, at its long end looking down the stairs. I just love the waves of people and the shape of the stairs.

Problems, well I had to go to ISO200 and it was not too fast to focus. I jamed myself against the hanrail at the top to get extra stability.

Well captured, an interesting and very 'graphic art' image.

Did you kill flash for this?

Thanks for the comments. for this shot the camera was in aperture priority mode, lens as wide open as it went and at ISO200. The flash was turned off as I was trying to use the available light. as the exposure was not very fast I had my camera resting on the top of the handrail to try and give extra stability.

I would have personally liked to see the pic with no people on the steps, but nice work anyway.

Very pleasing curves, and I like the balance of two people going in each direction. I wonder whether tilting the camera slightly to skew the angle slightly might have improved it slightly?
