    People need to take a photo of a 1960s public library (inside) with a sign that simply says 'silence'. Mute all other colours down to almost grey levels but pull the yellows and golds up a bit. It would work well in a library that still had an orange pine finish for it's shelving.

    Should be taken at about chest level, f/11 to get nice even DoF. No flashes.

    That's what I do anyway.
