About the Image(s)

This is another image from my honeymoon trip last October. This was a little tricky on the blend because the outside went very flat after the Aurora merge. I did not try a LR blend to compare. Took a bit of contrast adjustment within Aurora and later in Color Efex Pro. Then used Capture One to remove a blue cast in the shadows. There was a little cloning in the hallway and near the fountain for 2 people.

I feel your blend ended up looking quite nice. Maybe shift the hue of the sky a bit more into the blues, but that is minor. I like the general composition as it conveys a lot of depth to the scene. I do find my eye going to the dark inset on the near column at the right edge and that I wish the cross piece in the middle wasn't overlapping the trees (much like the cross and mountain in my Tetons chapel shot). If you aren't focused on the reality (no pun intended), would you consider cloning both areas (probably content aware fill)?   Posted: 01/16/2021 10:33:55

Maybe the dark line in the column, but probably not the tree.   Posted: 01/16/2021 17:08:35

I wasn't thinking about the tree as much as the wooden cross structure.   Posted: 01/16/2021 18:53:38

Remove the whole cross?   Posted: 01/17/2021 07:15:14
