So you've been to Demre (or ancient Myra) the burial place of St Nicholas a.k.a Santa Claus to see this impressive Byzantine edifice built to commemorate him! I know people come here for pilgrimage also Shame I haven’t been there. However, only for having my eyes calibrated for the legacy of the Byzantine architecture since my early childhood alone, I could still feel lucky!
Now, whether one’s eyes look for what’s already in one’s mind or one’s mind looks for what one has seen so far, the early churhes in basilica style taking after the Roman grandeur always fascinates me! The flow of light from the apse as intended in these edifices constructed on an axis of east to west makes a subject of meditation during one’s loooong stance…
As for editing the picture, clonning out the girl was a good idea which has been applied well. Besides, the shadows tool and gamma or vibrance adjustment plus some sharpening and a little noise removal works quite well as in the example Bynx submitted. On the other hand, I believe a well handled pseude hdr from one frame, after some refinement in PS would do as good, even emphasizing more light –shade interplay on the floor and on the walls.
Thanks for sharing this inspiring image Kevin!
