Michelangelo's fresco in Sistine chapel (Vatican)

It was very dark and flash was not allowed (light damages the fresco). tripods were not allowed either, so i placed my Pentax MX film camera on the floor and took a long exposure shot (probably 30 sec or 1 min). it turned out amazingly good, especially since i estimated the exposure time as i had no light meter.
