I took this photo of Mother Goddess statuette long time ago in the Museum of Anatolian Civilizations. It was shot handheld. If I were in that museum today, I would probably do it differently. Your advice, as ever, will be highly appreciated.

It's a good shot. Maybe a closer crop may help a little.

my advice, find a cuter subject

Good job though. You have no wayward reflections from the glass, and there is not much you can with lighting. As sys said, perhaps crop out the extra stuff that isnt adding anything.

Nice job for handheld and reflections. It has a slight color cast I believe, I wasn't there so i don't know for sure. I did a slight levels adjustmentand set the grey point in levels on the base the statue is sitting on, sharpened and saved.

I would have probably angled away from the lights on the ceiling.. either by more of an upward angle, or from left to right.

Go Cubs - your cropped shot is not 8x10 ratio (which is almost square). It is closer to 5x7. Did you mean that you had cropped it down from its orginal ratio, which was about 8x10?
Actually, the 8x10" crop posted is 530x424 pixels, the exact ratio of width to height foran 8x10" print.

10"/8" = 1.25

530 pixels /424 pixels = 1.25

I'm intrigued- how did you set the grey point in levels on the base? It seems to be effective and I'd like to know how it was done.

JimC - I checked again. You got it right, I didn't. Sorry.
