Hi Bynx, sorry to say, this one does nothing for me at all. There is just too much in the shot to distract the viewer making it messy.

I'm really sorry to say, but I have to second Mark's comment... I saw that pic and thought: OK - what do you want me to show with this pic?

Just my two cents worth...

Im glad to hear you guys say that. Its exactly what I told the person running the museum. The whole place looked just like this. Messy and with no concern for people with cameras. Out of 100 shots I took, this one I did as an HDR to get the inside room (dingy lighting) and the outside through the window (bright sunlight).

Phew, I thought you had lost the ability to recognise a good photo!

Looking at the space, detail shots and close wide angles would be the only option.

Funny you should say that. Im losing a lot of my abilities. Maybe thats just one more of them. Anyway, here are a couple more pics of that dumpy museum. This place is in the town of R.S. McLaughlin, the founder of General Motors.

Wow, the layout of that place is remarkable to say the least. It looks like one of those museum that you regret paying the entrance fee for.

I’ll give you one thing Bynx, you managed to capture the “crampiness” and untidiness excellently. Well done!

Looks like lots of nice old cars, but I agree, what a mess.
