The cloisters revisted

took another attempt at photographing the medivial wing of the modern art museum. the cloisters are in the bronx over loooking the hudson river.
for a photographer it presents one of the most difficult places to photograph. dark rooms with skylights and stained glass windows have rays of bright light overloading any and all camera sensors.
pictures are either so dark you can barely see things or so bright they are washed out.
the photos below have as many as 7 different exposures combined in order to capture as much of the range as i could.
even so ,out of 400 pictures about 25 were acceptable

When and why were The Cloisters built? I assume they are a replica, but of what?

Just off the lovely Palisades Pkwy. What a quaint road that is used as a modern day commuting speedway. 50 MPH speed limit and everyone does 65. Do you know those right lane drainage grates are put in every couple of hundred feet for the entire length? Thump, thump, thump. That's why everyone is in the left lane going so fast.

As someone who has taken photos inside of a dark cathedral before, I am very impressed with some of these. My pictures were definitely a lot darker. Beautiful photos.

It was sooooo tough, not so much because of the darkness. thats easy to deal with on a tripod. the real problem is all those bright openings every where with light coming thru.

we deleted over 300 photos because even using hdr we couldnt get them the way we wanted them.
