Spinning a yarn

By ripleysalien    
This is a 7 shot HDR, shots 6 and7 being needed to bring in the window detail.
I spun the wheen for each frame as it looked a bit odd when shot still.
A slight curve tweek and a sharpen.
This was taken in the upper room of the restored "cell" at Mount Grace Priory.
V1 has a b/w layer added as I thought the color was a bit harsh, V2 i the tweeked HDR Tiff file.

Gleaned from Wiki

Unlike monks of other orders, who live in common, the Carthusians葉o this day様ive as hermits, each occupying his own cell (more like a small house), and coming together only for the nocturnal liturgical hours, and on Sundays and feast-days, in the chapel; the other hours are sung by each monk separately in his cell. Except for the singing of the liturgy and conversation "on grave subjects" during a weekly three-hour exercise walk, Carthusians are silent, and their diet is strictly vegetarian.

Well worth the effort.Prefer v1, the b/w layer has made a real difference.

Sounds like a blast Wink

I took this same angle when I went, but Naomi sat on the stool and pretended to spin. Didn't make for ideal hdr material! This has though - like the textures brought out, esp with the B&W layer.

Got an hdr from a different room in there - I'll post that to give ya a peep. Smile
