Sinbad's Dad gave me some inspiration to get in and fix this photo -- there was a lady on the left that wasn't adding anything to the overall beauty of the image so I did a tighter crop and cloned-out whatever was left of her. Sorry, lady...

Then I wondered if I could rescue the image by mirroring the right side with the left.   Well, I'm not exactly sure about the results -- I'll probably end up going back for a re-shoot.

Lord knows I've shot it before.   On that particular visit to MOMA-SF (about a year ago) the guided-tour lady was asking her group how many colors they thought were in the painting.   People were coming up with answers like "basically three" and "seven", but of course the correct answer is thousands or even millions of colors -- all the different frequencies of light.

The Henri Cartier Bresson exhibit is ON, folks...   I highly recommend it.
It is W o n d e r f u l.

Of course, no cameras are allowed in this special exhibit but I snuck a snap of this famous Bresson shot -- it was right outside the gallery.

Did I mention that the Henri Cartier Bresson exhibit was W o n d e r f u l ?

The MOMA-SF opened in the late '80's -- suppose I had better go check my dates and facts.   Be right back.   Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...

I snapped this, not in the museum but down the street on Third.   If you can't tell what it is it's window reflections from across the street on the blank wall.

Wow Don, I think you outdid yourself with this post.
Terrific cloning job. It really makes an interesting composition.
I love each shot and find the last one of the reflection especially intriguing. The little red dot in the lower right adds the perfect detail.
I guess I don't know one fowl from another...Awkkk (:0)

I like that top shot. I think the people in it really make the shot and I think you were probably wise to crop the one on the left side.

Yep, now this re-do made me see it different in a way I had not appreciated before. The two ladies are looking something other than the main subject of the photo (the painting) which creates a mystery for us the viewer. What is more interesting than what we the viewer are seeing? I like this.
