Hope Diamond, Natural History Museum

Silly picture, I know, but this thing is so difficult to photograph because it's rotating and in incredibly harsh lighting, to say nothing of the crowds surrounding it. They recently removed it from its diamond setting, and it's even more beautiful than ever. (Just wish I could capture that ;-)).

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3
1/60s f/2.8 at 12.8mm iso100 full exif

I think this is a great shot - well done especially as it was rotating. ~v~
