Great tyro 2014-04-01 8:42

Hello Rosemary,

This is a delightful photograph, very well composed and taken and full of wonderful vibrant colours. Very sharp and clear too considering that the light would not have been that great. On that note, your exposure values in your exif data appear at variance with what is stated in the little box on the right - your data say this was taken at f/3.5 at 1/2 second which, to me, seems somewhat unlikely.

Anyway, you have given us a very thoughtful note and I quite agree that it would seem less than appropriate that much of the artwork here came out of North Korea. That central relief artwork in your picture would appear to typify the attitude of North Korea with the aggressive stance of the two soldiers - quite unlike the obliquely placed painting of groups of happy Africans on the right.

An interesting note and a fine photograph too - and a very appropriate upload for TE.


Kind Regards,

Thanks for you comments John!

Regarding the shutter speed, it was 1/40 sec at ISO 800. The light was really poor so the exposure is not great. Maybe next time I'll go alone with my tripod but with 2 small boys there wasn't really time to be too fussy.

It was interesting to see the museum after so many years of delay in opening it. Well worth a visit if you ever get to Namibia

Hope all is well and thanks again
