Sistine Chapel - Cappella Sistina

A photosynth created with pictures taken during a recent visit to the Sistine Chapel. The chapel was purposefully dimly lit to discourage photography. Luckily I have some pretty fast lenses at my disposal that made it possible to take passable photos.

Hope you enjoy!

Great synth, and good job color balancing to get rid of the yellow cast you see in most interior photos.

Thank you so much for doing this. I studied so many of these paintings in school, and I'll probably never get to see them in real life... this helps me feel better about that. Good photos in low light! Although it seems that just the glow of LCD screens in everyone's hands would be enough to light the place up! THanks again.

How were you able to take this many photos without being busted? When I was there, I remember the guards constantly saying 'No Photos'

When I went in, I was expecting the same thing. However almost everyone was taking pictures, so after deliberating for a bit I just did it too. The guards were completely resigned and just stood chatting with each other. The lights were dimmed (it looks even brighter in these photos because of the low f/# I was shooting on) so just about everybody without DSLRs and fast lenses were getting naught but blurry garbage.

i find it hard to think that it was possible in those day that some one would be able to point with sutch clarity

It is very interesting to know that famous monuments can be seen in an interactive manner in which are trying to get close to what you really want and see the details.

Maybe follow up to what Dan Brown wrote in his books.
