From 3D to 2D

A fairly popular shot of mine dating back to our September holiday. In photographing art, there is always the challenge to add something rather than just register. Here I tried to convert a 3 D sculpture in the Pompidou Museum into a 2D art piece, including its shadow and adding the frame to increase the illusion that this is a painting rather than a sculpture.
