Challenge: Natural Light Indoors (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-5D Mark II
Lens: Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM
Location: Raglan Castle, Wales
Date: Apr 9, 2010
Aperture: f/7.1
ISO: 3200
Shutter: 1/6sec
Galleries: Emotive, Black and White
Date Uploaded: Apr 13, 2010

Toured several castles in southern Wales during this challenge period, so tried to get some of the rooms with light pouring in through window and door openings. There's no specific subject, per se, so might get slammed by voters for not adhering literally to the challenge details ... but this is natural lighting indoors.

ISO 3200, handheld, f/7.1 @ 1/6sec and -2/3EV (underexposed a bit to save highlight detail)

Thanks for the votes, comments and favs ... I would have been happy with a top 10 in this challenge, so blown away with getting a red.

The room in the photo was from Raglan Castle (color photo below) in south Wales. Over four days we visited something like 10 castles/abbeys, and I tried to find something for the challenge any time there was a room with light. I've included a couple outtakes, all coincidentally from Caerphilly Castle I think.
