Some clever interactions as they are all drawn into the corner.

So interesting to watch folks viewing art . . but, wait . . not all the art is on the wall, yes ?

Phil David Morris from Canada

Some of those people are dressed like they are the art, not whats on the wall.
Why do people do that. Makes for an interesting picture though. Beautiful.

I can't quite figure out why, but this image just works. So much to look at maybe?

I agree with Curly, whatever installation that is in the corner seems to be a magnet. Interesting perspective on this too, either you are really tall or you shot this from some elevated platform?

@Ralph Jones: Hi Ralph - This old trick is a little easier with a 16mm lens - I simply readied the shot and hoisted the camera to arms length above my head. I was bouncing flash off the built-in reflector of the 580ex which gave me the speed to pull this off with a sharp result. I hope you are having a grand King Holiday. Today is up there with Thanksgiving in meaningful celebrations. I still don't think that many Americans fully appreciate the 'gift' that Dr. King provided the world - against frightening odds.

David from Detroit, United States

This is a very cool composition. It is interesting that there is an incredible amount of movement and action in this shot, even though on the surface it appears that everyone is static. There is tension here.

@David: Thanks David - the woman who created this installation was talking about the art and her inspiration and challenges - everyone was listening intently - hence the perceived tension. Best to you...
