This is an original wine cellar located in the basement level of a 1700’s era tavern and guest house located in historic Old Salem, NC. I did not want to use a flash, so I stood up against the wall opposite to brace myself and steady my hand and camera as best I could.The image came out pretty good in my opinion. The light next to the open window is obviously modern day to allow for safe passage of visitors like me, but it is interesting to wonder just how dark it would have been in there when a candle or two would have replaced the electric light. However, I guess if retrieving a full wine bottle were to be your goal, you’d find a way to get to it. (Nikon D300, ISO 200, 18mm, f4.5, 1/13 sec. Developed in Lightroom 3, Beta 2)
