Great shot with that light streaming in.
I just pulled the right side a bit straighter from the top with PS Elements Image/Transform/Skew. What do you think?   Posted: 08/04/2019 19:27:54

The streaming light really makes this image! Good capture. I would use Edit/warp and straighten the lower right.   Posted: 08/09/2019 12:04:41

I also think this is a powerful image. It is hard to get stained glass when light is streaming through, and warp would be good, but I would also try to dial down some of the light spots to see more of the details.   Posted: 08/15/2019 17:59:17

Beautiful! I have seen this scene so many times and love it. My thought when I first viewed this was to dial back the sun rays I Usually, it is darker and the rays are a soft glow. Perhaps, this is very bright and that is the way it looks. However, I would dial it back a bit and it would bring out more detail. The pews are very sharp and then it drops off. It might be interesting in black and white.   Posted: 08/15/2019 21:29:50

I love the composition and the way you have captured the sun's rays. I use LR Classic to convert to mono. One of the courses I did in the UK recommended being very bold with adjustments, so this is 90 on Contrast, -50 on highlights, 80 on texture - the teacher suggested starting everything at + /- 100!   Posted: 08/30/2019 10:08:05
