This is like an optical illusion, can feel sucked into it! Really well composed :) My brain tells me it might be a tad off centre, but still really good.

What did you do in post production?

Jason Hart's picture

Thanks. I almost lost my balance and fell on several occasions trying to setup the camera dead center under the arch. Once I was happy with the placement, I walked around popping a speedlight from a few different angles to light the undersides.

In post, I decided on three images with the lighting I wanted and blended those. There wasn't much else done besides removing some light fixtures and making some global adjustments. I used the transform tool to ensure everything was level and squared, but like you, my mind still tells me something isn't perfect, and I start to lose my balance again. ;)

Wow...I almost don't know how to look at the dimensions correctly, and that makes this so awesome!

Exactly what I thought!

It's really challenging to take a unique photo of such a well known landmark, but you did an amazing job here!

Setting up these kind of shots are quite a challenge. Excellent job. The detail from the far left and right arch ceilings is fantastic.

If M.C. Escher was a photographer he may produce something like this. Wonderful shot and post production.
