The story behind the image

The dinosaur museum in Denkendorf, Bavaria, is the perfect way to spend an afternoon with kids. It has a park featuring life sized models of many dinosaurs and other animals of the past and an area where you can search for fossils. But it also has a genuine museum explaining the field of archeology and some of the most exciting findings.

The highlight of the exhibition is without doubt Rocky, the genuine skeleton of a teen Tyrannosaurus rex. I took multipole shots of the exhibit with my smartphone and think this is the best. At 1/17 exposure time and ISO 200 (on a smartphone) it is not super super sharp when examining the photo at 100%, but I think the composition is great and compensates for these shortcomings.
