About the Image(s)

I’m attaching a photo of the interior of a Romanian Catholic Church. It was taken with a wide-angle lens (10-24mm) set to 10mm. ISO was set for 8000 so I used Nik Dfine2 to reduce noise. If it is permitted, I’ve included an image of the exterior of the church. I was amazed by the simplicity of the exterior when compared with the interior.

Mary, what a contrast between the interior and exterior . Nik Define really did a nice job on the noise. Did you try the lens distorcion tool in camera raw? Colors are amazing I might try toning down the bright window on the left. Well done, Bruce   Posted: 08/12/2019 17:50:59

I used luminosity masks to tone down that window but it might have used a bit more.   Posted: 08/13/2019 05:21:34

Mary I agree with Bruce. So simple on the outside, with a wow on the inside! The lighting draws my eye to the angels at the top of the frame. A HDR set might have helped with the left window by compositing just the window from an under exposed image. Well done.   Posted: 08/13/2019 13:31:49

Mary, there are no pixels on this window due to overexposure, so it is not possible to tone it down. I cloned the opposite window, flipped it and brought it over. The inside architecture, religious artifacts and the paintings are just incredible. I agree with Walt that perhaps a three (at least) HDR sequence would have helped to improve the windows.   Posted: 08/13/2019 16:07:33

I had just considered the cloning idea. It is sometimes the only way to correct this problem.   Posted: 08/14/2019 11:18:50
