Spotted this amongst of series of statues in the Natural History Museum in London - it's in their 'Elements' section (although bearing in mind this was a couple of years ago it may have moved!). I had to duck down to get the angle as the statues are actually roughly eye level - well, they are if you're 6'2" like me! ;)

Aperture: F5.6
ISO: 1000
Notes: Handheld - I squeezed off a lot of shots to make sure I got one sharp! Blurry border round the edge added in Photoshop as I was quite keen on the effect at the time, as well as the slightly cross-processed look which comes from a Curve adjustment layer.
