Superb shot and b&w conversion. When browsing the gallery and this thumbnail image, I thought immediately this was an DSLR IR image. When looking closer I understood it was just a very well defined and rich black and white. Well done!

A fine study, David. Museums are difficult to photograph convincingly but you've shown how it can be done.
Best wishes,

Andrew

A very strong striking shot.
I just love the deep blacks.
A cracker.
I know what i like, If not always why.

Very nice capture & BnW. Conveys the shiny sense of bulk very well.
