Trinity College Library This image was taken in the Old Library Building’s Long Room. (Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland) The trinity college was founded in 1592. It contains the largest library in Ireland. The Library is also well known because it is the permanent home of the famous Book of Kells. The library contains more than 4.5 Millon Books as well as a lot of other historical writings and manuscripts. Canon EOS, extracted from a single raw file. Unfortunatly I have not been allowed to use my tripod in there but I placed the camera on my backpack and used the remote control to trigger.

Slight blurring or ghosting bottom right side. Otherwise very nice for a Single image capture. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for your comment Ed. Yes, there was a lot of movement in this room. This is why I decided to expose for 10 seconds. At least I am happy with the result. Not that one I would have taken with a tripod but okay.

@axel_hahn I never saw this before . 4.5 million books? Wow! I probably couldn't even read the titles in the rest of my lifetime.

@steve_zasadny Yes, that was really impressive. Also the atmosphere was great although there were many people in there. There is a great wikipedia page with more details.
