Cambridge with the 7-14mm PRO

This sort of thing is why I wanted the 7-14mm. It is quite dark so the ISO is up to 3200 as I'm shooting handheld (I don't normally carry a tripod) so excuse any noise although I don't think it is too bad.

This was a single shot so as expected the glass windows (7 of them) needed pulling back. This was done by processing in adobe raw (elements 12) and then masking onto the jpeg from OV3. I also lightened the right hand pews of the church to match the left and gave them and the centre aisle a nice glow. I reduced the saturation in the stonework to get rid of the slight creamy yellow texture as I like my stone to look like stone. I also toned down the very bright left hand side a bit and put back the original wall plaques with another mask. The ceiling was also given a bit of lift to expose what detail there was.

Here is the result.

And the original
