Default Went to the museum today...

...with my kids and wife, we had a great time!! I also got the chance playing with the camera...some pictures turned out quite ok, despite my shaking hands and manual focus...all pictures were taken with my ricoh lens most att aperture 2.8 or 4 (when the light were enough)
all handheld and PP in lightroom, mostly sharpening and some rotating were done. Almost no WB correction since I believe the camera actually did a pretty decent job with that considering the lighting availible.
Please feel free to comment on what I could have done different or what was good...

Awesome shots! You should be proud of them, they are very good. Museums are not the easiest places to take photographs, these worked. The only suggestion I might make is to clone out the OOF railing in the lower right corner of the first scull picture, I found it distracting and the picture is otherwise excellent. It shouldn't be that difficult a clone job.

Next time you might want to take an auto bracket set of the stained glass windows and do an HDR version of the scene. It might not be any better than your shot here, but it's always interesting to do it and compare the results.

Thanks mtngal!! I am actually proud of the two sculls...I think they are great! With these pictures I also have explored the art of sharpening..
