San Fernando Cathedral Interior

Today's photos is another shot from the interior of San Fernando Cathedral, but it is the first time that I have processed a shot from there using primarily Nik software products. I think this looks much better than the original version (posted here) for a variety of reasons.

This I believe is the first photo that I took inside the cathedral with an "L" series lens. the 60D is a much better camera than the T1i, and of course the post-processing software that I use is much better now than what I started out with. Another reason that I think this shot looks better is that a lot of my very early images were composed from a single RAW shot, and as I have learned more about photography in general I realized how very important having the camera capture a lot of the shadows and highlights is much more effective than having software do it.

  1. What a beautiful image Brian, I love it. Great tones and colors, I particularly love your composition that leads us right through the frame to the alter at the end there. And the alter is bathed in the most beautiful golden light. GREAT photo my friend!!!!!
