Thou wilt light my candle: the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness..Psalm 18: 28

This is another experiment, shot by existing light .. .I wanted to get enough detail to include the print of Christ on the wall plus the still life on the stand so I manually stopped down, which required a slow shutter speed to compensate for the dim lighting in the room..

    The detail and tones are perfect, so crisp and clear.. difficult to do in such low light.. This is an interesting and really beautiful image!
