Upscale sculptures

This shop had halogen spotlights all over the place so it was a real pain minimizing the glare and preventing those lamps from getting in the shot. The large number of specular highlights was unavoidable. Couldn't stop down the aperture further than I did because 1. there wasn't enough illumination (I was already at ISO 800 and didn't want to go higher) and so camera shake would completely ruin the shots, and 2. I wanted a shallow depth of field to blow the cluttered background as out of focus as possible to separate the subject from it.

I shot the image below a couple of times. With the focus on the charioteer the horses were very out of focus. I thought this shot's better. Even the wheel is very close to being tack sharp.
