The Lobby of the Millennium Biltmore Hotel
26-NOV-2011 Dr. Joshua Ong

The Lobby of the Millennium Biltmore Hotel

Los Angeles, California

This beautiful and historical hotel was built in 1923. The lobby has been decorated for the Holiday Seasons (2011). Although photography is allowed here but strictly handheld. I had to crank up the ISO setting and I took 4 frames of the same image and braced myself each time. This is the best out of the 4 and indeed, it is sharp at even the pixel level. The other 3 turned out to be only OK. BTW, I shifted the lens slightly upward and tilted forward a bit to minimize the distortion and to get an extended depth-of-field at f/5.6, respectively.
