St. John's Chapel, Tower of London

There’s something amazing about a building which is still standing after nearly 1000 years.  This is St. John’s Chapel in the White Tower…in the Tower of London.  This image is from 3 handheld exposures — part HDR, part composite.  The dynamic range was extreme here with the dark shadows and the bright light streaming in the windows.

  1. Wow…incredible to be in this place…1000 years is holy ground when you think of all the lives that stood here in the very place where you stood to grab the shots! Thank you for sharing…:)

  2. Impressive for handheld! And I agree about the effect these ancient places emit. Love the tones in the stone work throughout. Great capture in difficult light.

    Oh, that is awesome. I don’t suppose they’d allow you a tripod in there, would they? I am visiting the place myself in a couple of weeks.

    • Thanks. I don’t believe any tripods would be allowed but I’m not certain (I didn’t carry tripod for any of my Europe trip). Have fun — it’s a fascinating place to visit.

        Yes, I suspect they won’t. Anyway, thank you.
