post challenge:
Wow, my second blue! Thanks for all the votes and comments.
On my profile page, this is going to sit next to my my 'Cathedral' image which was also a hand held - slow shutter - not taken for the challenge shot. (I'll have to keep trying less hard - lol)
You can find out more about this place by googling Fountains Abbey. It was built in the 12th century. This mighty chamber is called the Cellarium and is 300ft long. My picture shows only one end of it because there was a guided tour right in the middle.

Really pleased to see this in the top spot.
There really ought to be a rule that says if you're going to shoot in my back garden - then you should invite me along so that I can piggyback on your success.
Seriously - huge congratulations.

This needs more, such as some action in the scene, a person peeping from behind the column or something to give it a pop of color. It is shot well and I like it however it is a little static.
