Sistine Chapel Of Americas, Andahuaylillas

This colonial church is richly decorated with amazing frescos dated back in to Francisco Pissaro times, thus earning a recognition as "Sistine Chapel Of Americas". I will post more images from this church in this gallery. The thing to realize is that photography is strictly prohibited in the church, you have 3-4 guards who enforce this rule and constantly walking around you. So, I ended up shooting from the hip up and at incredibly slow shutter speeds anywhere from 0.5 sec to 1/10. Guards were absolutely irritated and disturbed by ongoing "bip-bip" sound of AF and "tscheetz" of shutter release, while having no idea how to catch this ghost... Not too many people have an advantage to see these shots, so enjoy the moment !
