This shot is a little darker than the previous shot because illumination usually works from the ceiling to the floor, not the other way around. I didn't fix it too much in processing because that also allows more of the detail to be brought out in the shot, which is what I was really trying to capture in the shot. I included the re-taken shot as well so you can see how much of a difference the different field of view made. The arch that crosses at the top of this photo is the same as the arch at the top of the original photo, it is just a different perspective (and a few feet closer to the front of the church). I am glad that I was able to find time to shoot this church again, and if/when I get another chance to visit the DC area St. Matthews will always be very high on my list of places to shoot.
