The Best of a Monumental and Majestic Work of Epic Proportions by your lowly and humble photographic servant.

Hey Jkirlin.. this shot would have been beautiful had it been taken with a tripod - more sharpness and then shutter speed management to get the chandelier on top more in focus. good composition though. and thanks for adding me on your blogwatch list. Cheers! Nitin...

This was actually a shot for my 'DeFocused New York' project. ;)

I like the composition too but would agree with Nitin, it really does require a little more sharpness. Makes a change NOT to see pictures of the interior, where I understand it is difficult to get permission to use a tripod.

@Curly: I have a bad habit of shooting and walking when I use the 10mm assuming it's capturing everything like a peach basket then I find crooked photos of course and they lose even more sharpness when straightened in post processing. I've tried sharpening but the XTi that I like to use with this lens can be a bit noisy and it makes the grain worse. So I pretend I wanted the soft image. :) I've even shot for half a day without realizing the autofocus was off with this lens.

It's a grand shot - no need to fuss with a tripod.

@rumbarber: I have this really nice Manfrotta tripod that I carry with me sometimes but have never actually used to take a photo, but it looks really nice standing next to my desk!
