Ancient Treasure

  1. An unusual place and collection of artefacts. The man introduces questioning linked to the circle of seats – are they there to keep people at a distance from the objects on the table, to conduct out of hours seances or as some sort of religious activity? Or probably none of those! The light carpet is at odds with the almost mouldy green of the wall paintings, whilst the collection of other objects serves to give some clues without giving enough. So, interesting. On a point of detail, it is a pity that the man’s hair and the statue are a touch too bright.

  2. There is an enigma in the man table relationship which I enjoy. The colour in the seat circle certainly dominates the centre of the image.
    The environment is created by the background and gives me the impression of a period hotel. I am not so sure as to the requirement for the balcony, perhaps it helps to dominate the man and table.

  3. Thanks. Yes the picture appealed despite the burned out hair and statue head. The picture was shot in jpg when I was playing with a GF2 I picked up for a very silly (cheap) price with the 14mm lens, but I couldn’t recover any detail in the hair. Still not preferring M4/3 to my rf’s, but with the Zeiss 28mm finder in the hotshoe and set to 3:2 aspect ratio it’s easy to carry on the bike etc.

    The picture was made for me by the chap walking across the floor as we circled the balcony, so was grabbed in a moment.
