Yes the guy in green does appear to have passed out...a bit of a "wheres Wally puzzle" !..good spotting!
That would be both heaven and hell for me... I love studying knowledge and learning, but I hate being around large groups of people!
By hook, or by crook,I wanna go there and would study there and I know that all will agree with me about that, the hall is realy worthy of praise.
Impressive hall, and excellent photo. I guess we could put the study hall I had in the University about 20 or 30 times just inside that frame.
this is the first time ever i saw this type of big a study hall..my god,,,its huge...also make this picture huge by a great photography skill..thanks for sharing .
It's almost surreal to see a place this open and full of learning. A fantastic piece of architecture.
Outstanding geometric shot! Fascinating to look at and observe all the different aspects of this photograph. So neat and tidy.
Nice Shot and nice composition !
But interesting thing when you know that the communist party of China burnt 5000 years of knowledge and litterature during succesive reforms of Cultural Revolution.
I'm just curious to know what kind of books there is are in this enormous library.
My favorite thing about this "Study Hall" photo is all the people sleeping. It reminds me of most of my study halls back in the day.
I find the one unoccuppied computer/desk an interesting point in the crowded scene. Very interesting.
@Wesley Swing Knowledge in his head was too heavy :-)
