One of the most beautiful libraries in the world, built between 1712 and 1732, the Long Room at Trinity College’s Old Library holds the collection’s 200,000 oldest books. The CI shows the library, here I show you a detail with the lightfall from a window.
Excellent image of this beautiful library, very well done. I really like the highlighted parts with the books in the shelves while the rest remains almost in the dark. It gives me this feeling of "it was only reserved to a few people in these days that they could learn to read and write while the rest of the population was left in the dark". A must-see in Dublin, no doubt about this.
I just ticked the "I Like it" square above but that does not adequately describe my feeling for this image. I LOVE IT! The light grabs your attention the minute you open the image and its receding intensity give the image depth. The recede busts of famous literary people give size and dimension to this lovely space. I don't recall when Joanne I visited whether photos were allowed as I did not make any images. This was in the film days so I was a bit stingy trying to use slow outdoor film on an interior that absolutely required a tripod. You captured the essence and beauty of this space with this image.
What an amazing building well created for a library purpose, we can smell the old books on the many shelves and admire the sculpture of some famous writers. Good play the the light and the heads perspective.
This must be a fascinating and awe-inspiring place. The play of light and shadow in your photos is beautiful and it causes a special atmosphere and an impressive room depth. For me a little photographic artwork.
Greetings from grey and cool Westphalia!
A well composed photo with wonderful play of light on the books. The CI shows how impressive this library is. I like the atmosphere a lot. You have controlled the exposure in both photos in an excellent way.
