I am litterally lost for words on how stunning this image is, but here goes.... This is what I expect my eyes to reaveal to me in this Crypt, I did not expect a camera to ever get this realistic view, its almost like I am stood next to you while you took this image. It makes my Pyramidical Orchid HD look bland

You had to have used a tripod for this shot. Did you have any trouble bringing a tripod into the church? Did you have any problem with the authorities allowing you to set up the tripod? The quality of this photo is very impressive. What lens did you use?
sergiogold July 09, 2015
Yes Barry i use tripod, with my camera i can't shot without tripod in low light. Many churches are not allowed, but i managed to take some photos :) This is HDR photo from 3 pictures. I use canon lenses 10-18mm :)
