Hi everyone,

Arlington Court also houses the UK's largest collection of horse-drawn Coaches. The museum allows photography but no touching of the exhibits are allowed nor is the use of flash. The museum is located in a series of barns and converted stables and lighting is challenging to say the least. This series taken with the a99V SLT on high ISO, a combination of the Sigma 24-70/2.8 DG HSM or Minolta-Rokkor 58mm/1.2 and all, needless to say, also hand-held:

1. Broken Cane Wheel Guard



2. Door Handle



3. Detail



4. Acetylene Lamp



5. Family Crest



6. Steering Assembly



7. Coaching Lamp



8. Aged crest



9. Wicker Guard and Lamp



10. Hearse



11. Red Wheel



Thanks for looking and comments always welcomed.

Kind regards, Neil.

Neil,
I'm with Michel - your lovingly composed and crafted detail images are most appealing, but I'd love to see the odd whole coach too.

Great stuff with lots of details. My favourite is the last one with a very strong composition and colour.

Excellent series, Neil - lots of fascinating details - #3, #7 and #11 are my favorites.
I very much like the dark "background" and the mood that it conveys, there is a lot of "love" or respect for things of the past transmitted here. You did a very good job to preserve that feeling. It must be a fascinating museum.

TFS and all the best, Harald.

Thanks for the positive comments everyone!

Now - the issue: I don't believe I have any 'general' shots of the coaches mainly due to the fact they were packed in quite tightly and were predominantly black in colour. Now even I and an a99 couldn't manage those sort of exposures! I will check again on my inventory of unused images but I suspect there may not be anything present...

Best regards, Neil.
