'Hogwarts' Dining Hall

The Great Hall dining room at Christ Church, Oxford University.

 

Note: Time for a re-do of this shot. The chromatic aberration and noise will be much better then, and the new version will view full-screen.

 

During the English Civil War (1642 - 1651) Oxford became the Royalist capital of England and the Great Hall was the seat of the government of Charles I.

 

Likely only of interest to Harry Potter fans, this is the movie setting for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry's dining room scenes.

 

(No tripods were allowed here so I shot 5 exposures on Continuous High at ISO 400 with the camera held tightly against the back of a chair. HDR processing was done in Photomatix Pro)
