In the 1850’s there was a cholera epidemic in a mountain city here in Mexico and because of some strange circumstances with the burial of the dead some were mummified and are now in one of the strangest museums I have ever been in. Creepy! For more info go here
Settings are not important as it has been processed quit a bit.

I find it interesting Lenny.
I would tempted to clone out the portions of the partial mummies on the extreme LH and RH sides.
Overall, I fell the mummies could be sharper (although I realize that you’re shooting through glass).

Definitely agree with bucweeet, and this is freaky…

Gosh, this looks quite disturbing but I like the scene nevertheless.
The image you posted looks too soft for some reason, is that because of post-processing? I feel like there’s a significant loss of detail.

I don’t comment on technical aspects (noise, focus) cos I usually don’t care. From the artistic/creative point of view: image seems to me like first documentary shot. I’d try to do something more to emphasize emotions (horror, creepiness, etc) like different angle, fill the frame, etc. + some postprocess.
For example the detail of one mummy head with other heads peeked out behind.
However I see it is complicated because of the glass pane.

Thanks for the comments!
Paul, I tried removing the partial mummies but kinda like them in the shot.
Jansenka, your right it’s soft. Shot with a pocket camera. My choices were between softness and lots of noise.
Petr, yes, I should have worked the shot.

I think I agree with Federico about the symmetry, it could have been a bit more sharp and striking. Welldone either way.
