Great Hall of the Biblioteca Nacional de Chile by taffy

Great Hall of the Biblioteca Nacional de Chile

We happened onto a reception in this hall, honoring the release of a new book of poetry. They even gave Junko @jyokota and me each a copy, offered food and appetizers as well, so we must have looked like we fit in (or were official photographers?). The building was quite beautiful.
Photo combines three images using Photomatix, with some tweaks using Color Efex. Lost track of what I was doing as I was processing while watching some old movies.
Stunningly beautiful!!! Fantastic capture and processing!!!

Very spacious architecture... really beautiful. The colors, light and lines of the windows are especially luminescent. What a great trip you had. I also enjoy your "bibloteca" tag. :)

A great way to present part of this magnificent building.

Super processing and capture. Fav!! 😃
December 28th, 2014  
beautiful processing
December 28th, 2014  
@leonbuys83 Heehee! I do agree that it is VERY over the top! As @jyokota noted, it may even be presenting the building as more than what it was. I loved the architecture but found the great hall to be a bit drab. If it hadn't been for the reception going on, it would have been very drab, in fact. But this is what in my mind, I thought the great hall of such an incredible building 'ought' to convey!
December 28th, 2014  
Fabulous processing brings out the detail and reflections on the windows!
December 28th, 2014  
@redy4et Thanks Elizabeth...have been thinking of you today. All the best in what must be some hard times.
December 28th, 2014

A splendid image - would it make a good jig-saw puzzle?
December 28th, 2014  
@busylady That's such an interesting idea! I wonder if there's a company that makes jigsaws from photos? It would make for fun gifts!
