    Thanks - it was a bit random - camera hanging round my neck and firing when the guards weren't watching. Not right that they don't let you do non-flash IMO.

    I worked in a museum for 7 years... there are copyright and legal issues involved, especially if the artist is still alive. I've even been refused permission to photograph in the gift shop during a Dali exhibit in Philadelphia.

    I'm not an advocate for deceptive photography, but thanks for taking the chance...impressive image.

    Hi Craig - artists copyright should be respected. Artists (and their backers) should be the only parties to gain commercially from the work.

    But charging people to view art and then preventing them from recording their experience of it isn't realistic (and must be a bugger to police). The whole world carries a camera and a good chunk of it is sharing what they see through social media.

    Why should art be excluded from that?

    Great capture---Times have changed greatly, because of the new technology. Along with the changes, humanity's --as a whole-- measure of character and fairness has deminished. I was an Art History major, and have been a photographer since '75. Standards have gone from: "Take a picture of anything you'd like."(--all the way to--)"Sir, are those your real eyes, or a camera? Please remove them anyway." I have shots of some of the greatest pieces of art in the world, and (overall) the sames rules, laws, and ethical standards still apply. If the heart of the artist is as poisoned as the rest, then the motive remains the same for all--greed, without honour, respect, and humility. Pawning someone else's work as your own is like 'Playing God' and spitting on yourself at the same time.

    Great shot, and I agree with you, artists shouldn't expect people to view your work and then no expect them share it with others who didn't get to view it.
