Ceiling of the Guggenheim Museum, New York

Both occasions I visited New York with my old College we took a trip to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum on the Upper East Side of New York City. The first time in 2005 was interesting and the building looks fantastic but the exhibits where slightly disappointing on both occasions . The photograph above was taken from the ground floor, just inside the entrance. The viewing gallery forms a gentle spiral from the ground level up to the top of the building, which can be seen around the edges of this picture. I struggled to like this picture, its very grainy and didn’t look very good in colour or black and white. In the end I used Photoshop to covert the original file to Black and White and then erased the center of the glass ceiling to bring back a touch of blue. Apart from the grain or noise produced by the low light, high ISO, compact camera situation I like this photograph, mainly for it’s interesting composition.
