Lovely image from inside a church. By the look at the ISO you have used it was very dark? The noise seems to have been handled well. I like that the candle and flame are blurred meaning that your eye goes straight to the background details.
I do find it a bit dark and perhaps you could have lightened it a little in LR or Photoshop?   Posted: 03/02/2023 12:20:12

Interesting shot! I think it's a bit dark, but maybe that's the look you were going for? I agree that the blurred candle pulls your eye right to the background picture. I think a subtle lightening of the picture would help bring out the details.   Posted: 03/02/2023 17:25:53

Good capture in low light. Having blurred candle in the foreground draws the eye into the photo. I find the brown rectangle on the right side distracting and would try erasing it in Photoshop. Could try brightening picture and perhaps darkening curtain. Well taken in under obviously challenging conditions.   Posted: 03/03/2023 14:54:11

Good Evening. Indeed the building was small, narrow, and there was a lack of plenty of light. Another cons is that at that specific time i was equipped with only one lens (this is why the focal lenght is 17mm). The brown rectangle is a curtain (in this instance). This door or curtain is used in orthodox churches to separate the inner part of the church. Actually the church of the picture is a Byzantine chapel following a medieval architecture.   Posted: 03/06/2023 09:39:24

Mr. T, you have captured the spirit of the scene, and I feel that. I suggest you straighten it and crop off the right side and the cup and flame then support the picture. The essence remains without distraction. The flame is handled well, in exposure and placement.   Posted: 03/09/2023 08:46:08

Nice photo of the inside of the church. The curtain included does tell a story of the separation of the inner part of the church from where the public are. The candle and flame are nicely blurred but add to the story.   Posted: 03/13/2023 12:58:43

Very nice image. Great job letting the viewer know that the image is the subject of the photograph by blurring the foreground.   Posted: 03/20/2023 15:35:39
