Detail of the coffered ceiling at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago.

Sorry, I don't have a photo of the entire room, but it's huge and tall.

Nice composition and perspective. A great place to visit, although its been years for me.

Great composition and exposure. I love the architecture and the patterns. I wonder what it would have looked like if you had used fill flash but it is probably too high for a flash to do any good.

Is that part of the Museum of Science and Industry?

Thanks for the comments.

That ceiling is probably 50 feet up from the floor so my little flash wouldn't have worked. If I remember correctly, I was on the second floor balcony when I took this, but still quite a distance away. The square spaces between the coffers are skylights, so I was surprised I was able to capture the detail at all.

The Museum of Science and Industry is a few miles south of the Field Museum.

This is where the famous T-Rex Sue is on display, the ceiling in my photo is above the dinosaur, out of view in the pic.



Thanks again!
