Default Church's Last Picture

Just finished another HDR of the interior of this church which was destroyed a couple weeks ago.

Very good, Bynx!

Great white-balance (best ever!) and nicely exposed stained glass-windows.

I like this one Bynx - how many exposures did you use and where did you set the focus point to? On the windows? On the wall? Please tell me

This is the middle shot straight out of the camera. I worked on this for a long time to get what I got. The EXIF data should answer your questions maggo. I set the fstop to 6.8 to try and give me good DOF. It was really pretty dark in there with only a few incandescent bulbs burning.

This is a view from the opposite end. HDR converted to B&W with Silver Efex Pro.

Yes, this is a good one too - I especially like how the windows are emphasized in this B&W version.

The only thing that's a bit distracting to me is the soap dispender on the left side - did you leave it there on purpose?

Great B&W on this last one, Bynx!

I would crop off some of the bottom - soap-dispenser and all - just about above the top-step, to get rid of that light wooden chest. And its listing a tiny bit to the left as well.

Otherwise - perfection in B&W!!

A beautiful b&w shot! I like this the best of all of your shots of this lovely church. I do admit to finding the soap dispenser distracting, I'd probably just clone it out. Maybe try to darken the wooden chest, but it doesn't really bother me that much. But that's such a minor thing when I look at this otherwise lovely picture.

i too like the b&w version, and agree that cloning out the hand sanitizer or whatever would be an easy improvement.

nice that you were able to capture it before its demise.
