Beautiful find and capture!
It's all about the angle of arrival of the light you can see it on a plain wall too.

never seen something like this before, but yes, i'd heard about it ... it's common for some other metal too, can't remember ...

anyhow, looks fantastic !!!!
and that work in bronze is wonderful too ....

yeah, it could be copper ...
copper use to change the color in green, after some time ......

Nice work all round Roger, great capture and the bronze work looks good except it looks a bit dull. Did you get to see the MCG ground Roger and is it as big as they say?

Yes Ollie .. photos to come ...
And if I brightened up the photo the rainbow effect decreased so I decided to keep the rainbow
