    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.

    Personally speaking, I think that this scene screamed for highly symmetrical shot, don’t you have any mate?

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