They're looking to be a bright bunch. ; )
Tom Wilson: They are indeed!
That barrel ceiling is spectacular Tom... there were ten times more tourists there the day that we 'toured' it....petersmile
Tom Wilson: This was a lull in the crowds, Peter - most of the time one could hardly move and this was about the only decent shot I got!

Like this, Tom, but intrigued by the word "Trinity"...is there 3 of something here that I cannot see?
Tom Wilson: It's the old library of Trinity College, Dublin, Ray - founded in 1592 as part of the British Government's plans to keep control of Ireland smile
I love these big old style libraries.
Tom Wilson: This is certainly a beautiful example, Chantal.

Are they seekers after knowledge I wonder?

Thought not..
Tom Wilson: Rubberneckers and fellow photographers smile
The over saturation brings much interest in the shot. The books seem to be made of gold.
Tom Wilson: It does give it a boost, doesn't it? smile
Looks like it's in a state of transmutation Tom
Tom Wilson: From a working 18th century library to a tourist attraction, Janet smile
I like this in all respects, a judge at my club would probably abhor the HDR effect.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Brian - well, some like it, some don't - I think it is fine if it is used sensibly, and when you have a rather dimly lit room like this library, the HDR affect gives it some life, I think.
superbe cet effet
Tom Wilson: Merci pour votre visite!
Blue seems to be a popular colour of dress for both the tourists and the guards. Looks like a magnificent library, Tom.
