Some nice windows (a700 imgs)

I visited one of our local museums yesterday to get a few shots of the outstanding display of artifacts of ancient Peruvian cultures. While there I also shot the four beautiful windows in the stairwell. These windows were done right after WWII from drawings by Prof. Georg Meistermann. They are about 2 meters high. The wonderful windows are in the Altes Rathaus Museum in Wittlich, Germany.
They depict "Die vier apokalyptischen Reiter".
Shot with a700 and Zeiss 16-35 handheld with available light. Comments welcome.

# 3 my fav, Gary, ...

as IMHO it makes very nice use of the reflection of the window in the shiny black stone beneath it.

Gary,

You nailed these shots; All are very sharp, well exposed and WB is spot on.

These artworks are very realistically represented and show what can be achieved with a excellent cam/lens combo, when in the hands of a competent photographer. What did you PP them in - the 800 iso results are also impressive?

Cheers Steve

Thanks for stopping to look! These are of course The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse as in the last book of the New testament.

Steve ....

thanks ever so much for the very kind words! Where should I send the check?

I use an ancient piece of software for most of my PP. It is PhotoImpact 12 from Ulead (now Corel). I did very little to these; mainly a bit of lens distortion correction to get them fairly well squared up. I did NO NR at all. And, they were done in JPEG.
