Full title:
The Pterodactyl glides silently across the deathscape that is the empty white room



Museum of Natural History
New York


An fitting finale to my New York series, I thought. Thanks to everyone that followed the series -- I had a lot of fun making it :)

Another great piece
The skeleton reminds me of pictures of the grim reaper, a skeleton with a scythe
Definitely an image of ending
I like the way the background has shapes and pieces that are half finished like the arch and the square and yet farther to the right similar shapes are whole and complete it gives an strange backdrop to the really neat shape produced by the pterodacyl
Really cool

haha I like the full title better 8D

I really like this photo... the pale background really brings focus on the skeleton.
The angle of the shot and the composition really gives the illusion that the pterodactyl is actually flying :O

Wow, neat. Well deserving as the grand finale. I love the low contrast, so sterile looking you do get a feeling that nothing could be alive in it.
