Photographer's Note

Here's the interior of one of the caves of the famous Cave Temple in Dambulla that I posted earlier. This is a World Heritage Site with 153 Buddha statues, statues of goddesses, murals and paintings dating back to the 1st century BC.
The historical value of this artwork is obvious.
There's also one more thing why I find this pic remarkable. I shot it almost in complete darkness, the only light came from the hidden lamps along the perimeter of the cave, it's handheld and no flash.
Sure it's not perfect but if you look at the crazy iso number and try to imagine the usual amount of noise associated with it you'll understand my delight here:))

Well, I'm not that kind of person who enjoys running around with a tripod, setting and waiting for endless exposures. I prefer everything done quickly but well enough. So I find this low noise performance at impossibly high iso absolutely outstanding. Just what I need:))
