There should be a great displayon anthropology inside...You've tastefully framed the mainedifice with palm trees and side buildings. Seems you're enjoying theuncropped wide angle of your 17-40 lens on your fullframe camera I wonder howyou compare this lens with your earlier 12-24 tokina at their common focal lengths.

Bahadir, the Tokina 12-24 compares very well with the Canon 17-40. Both are f4 and deliver sharp pictures with good color saturation. Yes, inside the museum is a very impressive display of mankind's evolution.

There are quite a few wealthy philanthropists in the Dallas area. Problem is, you couldn't create the magnificant setting (Balboa Park) that surrounds the one in San Diego.

Here's the Casa del Prado Theater - also in the park.

And the arboretum. There are actually several museums, fountains, an organ pavillion and other attractions in Balboa Park.
