    Great image, Lina. A bit spooky! I can’t imagine that they use to lock up people that had mental illness in places like this, of course before it deteriorated to this point.

  • Thanks Tori!
    A bit spooky?… It’s an understatement! It took us about 30 min to finally dare to go inside LOL

    This is a beautifully balanced composition. And it should be used to convince those who reject the concept of HDR that it should have a place in even the purist’s photographic toolbox.

  • Aw… you’re the best! So happy you liked it!
