Steve, I used the old 16-35 f/2,8 on a 5D. The photo was edited in DPP, that allows you to correct distortion, chromatic aberration and vignetting in a very easy way.
Oh well, I recuperated a slight vignetting in Photoshop ;-)

Wonderful graphic shot, tones, reflections, symmetry etc. Well controlled distortion too - what lens did you use?

"This is not a mosque"...lol! Love the enhanced spotlights on each painting. Crisply geometric.

Adal, I agree with Jeanne, this looks like the perfect environment for a Cindy Sherman show. And your image reflects her unique way of seeing/being in the world. I envy you. Would love to see a solo exhibit of her work!

perfect perspective and great wide treatment well done .v

I do so hope your imaginary exhibit actually comes to be...what a perfect use of an extreme wide angle...(and don't you just love the idea of combining Cindy Sherman's outrageous images with this extraordinary architecture! Just saw an exhibit of her work recently and this space looks as if it compplemmented her work so much better than the Neuberger, where I was...)
