For everything in this world, there is a start point. By the way here it is for me to a new world of light. Thanks to 'Johann Zahn' who seeded for this world long ago in 1685. I am a recreational amateur trying to grasp the concepts behind lenses, Excuse me !!

I appreciate the low iso again.
and is the lighting natural or artificial?

@ sojo,

The picture you see is as such seen by the naked eye.

The cave had very very few tungsten bulbs - the fact is that even these very few light sources is not really friendly for these caves, so these are put off once the visitors leave the chamber.

you know what, tripods were not allowed inside the caves and you cannot touch or keep anything on the rock. This picture is shot by keeping a stack of candles as the support which i fortunately found on the floor.

@ VBR,

thank you very much for looking back my archive. I personally feel all the digital pictures should be post processed -atleast a little degree ( basic corrections ) and my pictures are not an exception.
