Having seen pictures of this hall I kinda knew what to expect. However on arrival I was blown away, intricate carvings all painted white, skylights letting in wonderful light. This surly was a place to behold.

I had high hopes of shooting a mega-panorama here, however it appears that it’s not to be. The regular settings that I use (60 degree increments) simply dont give enough overlap. Usually this works a treat, however this time the symmetry and regularity of the location just didn’t work.

This image is a ‘vertorama’, three images stuck together vertically. There was a fair deal of messing with it once stitched. The Free Transform tool was used to pull it this way and that to produce a fully square image with as little bend as possible. I’m happy with the results, I may re-process this at a later date to de-grunge the processing.
