Zenobia In Chains, Study #1
One of the more celebrated statues in the St. Louis Art Museum collection is "Zenobia in Chains" c.1859 by St. Louis native Harriet Hosmer. At the moment, the statue's face is not well lit, but I rather like this back view. I'm still working on a faux-Fresson appearance that I think suits situations like this. I think the bokeh here is very painterly. The new AF-S Nikkor f1.4G is my main museum lens.
Technical: Nikon D700, Nikkor 50mm f1.4G, ISO 1600, f/1.8 @ 1/500s, custom white balance from a Color Checker Passport (2950K), handheld. RAW file processed in Lightroom 2.6, noise reduction in Nik Dfine, Fresson look created in Nik Color Efex Pro Film style.
