Great Court

By AntHolloway
The classic view of the Great Court of the British Museum but slightly wider with the 8mm fisheye lens capturing the sides of the opening. I was trying for a few things in this shot - I used three exposures to enable you to see the clouds and dome of the reading room through the roof as well as detail in the shadows, I timed it so that the sun had come out to give the shadows of the lattice onto the floor and I stopped the lens right down to try and capture some motion blur of people moving around.

Great image. It is a much photographed location. I've had a go but I have never seen such a wide shot with the fisheye. This has something extra.
