Show of Power

150105_Governers Mansion Reception Hall by . Fuji X-T1, XF18-135mm @ 73mm, f/5.3, 1/5 sec, ISO 1600

The entrance reception hall of the Colonial Williamsburg Governor’s Mansion displays an opulent collection of armaments.  The decor was to demonstrate the power of the Colonial Governor’s position and to make visitors humble.

Lesson learned:  This image was taken handheld at 1/5 second with an image stabilized lens.  I know better than to go below about 1/60 second to get the sharpness needed.  I relied on the playback image to decide if it was acceptable.  Wrong choice.  I should have stuck with the numbers, increased my ISO and shutter speed.
