MarshallG: A 10 stop ND filter. I wouldn't have thought.
Great job. Thanks for sharing it.
Thanks! Yes, it allowed my to slow down the ss to 30s in this light.
ConanFuji: It's a beautifully captured shot. Congratulations.
Thank you for your kind words!
Thanks! Yes, the shutter speed was 1/30s without the ND and not enough to stop the water.
Good to see the humble pancake 16mm win! Great colours and athmosphere.
Congratulations! This is a fantastic shot with amazing detail.
The Mick: Congratulations Caris! This is one lovely image and well deserving of the challenge win.Regards,Mick
FreedomLover: Golden colours.
Do the jagged lines come from the camera or the software?
The original size is much bigger of course, I had to downsize it to fit the competition rules ( the original is now in my gallery ).Ok, I'm guessing you are referring to the iron lines holding the chandeliers - they are partly twisted/spiral in the middle, not jugged. The camera processed them correctly and you can see this in the original, so it must be the downsizing issue ( under magnification ).
This is a JPEG straight from the camera. No pp except for slight increase of contrast and saturation. I'm not sure which jagged lines you are referring to?The pointy spires between the column arches are carved out of wood.
RuthC: Congratulations, Caris, on your win in this challenge. Your entry led in the voting all week. This is a beautiful, extremely detailed picture which would make a worthy, drive-you-crazy jigsaw puzzle. Wonderful warm, golden colours enhance the picture. Ruth :-)
Thank you so much for your kind words.This Chapel ( more of a huge church then a chapel ! ) is a stunning piece of interior architecture so this in itself was a great help :)
