I like this one. I'm not sure about candles in a gun powder magazine though.

But they were used at that time to illuminate the magazine of course behind glass panels... Would've made a big BOOM with several tons of gun powder in there...

Very interesting lighting, and I love the way it illuminates the arched brickwork. I am sure that was a difficult shot to pull off... well done!
