Default Virgin and Child - HDR


Virgin and Child by clee130, on Flickr

9 exposure hand-held HDR (since I thought tripods weren't allowed in the Cloisters).

The Cloisters is a museum located near the northern tip of Manhattan in New York City. The building, which is a branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, was reconstructed in the 1930s from the architectural elements of several European medieval abbeys. It is used to exhibit art and architecture from Medieval Europe.

The Fuentidueña Chapel in The Cloisters, with its barrel vault ceiling and 12th century apse, is a beautiful example of Romanesque architecture. The apse is dominated by a fresco of the Virgin and Child with the winged figures of Michael and Gabriel on either side.

The apparent eye shape of the ceiling makes an interesting frame.

It does not look HDR to me. Please accept that as a sincere compliment.

Thanks everyone. I don't really like the over-process HDR look myself which is why I edited the photo conservatively and yes, the Cloisters is a great place. I have some photos I have to edit so look out for those!

Beautiful image, love the framing. So... are tripods allowed? Permit necessary or just bring it in?

I'm not sure. The Cloisters are part of the Met and on the Met's website, they say tripods aren't allowed at the Met so I just assumed that was extended to The Cloisters as well.

I didn't even bother putting the tripod in the car because of that but when I was walking around, I saw someone using a tripod.
