    Chartres Blue: The blue stained glass in France's Chartres cathedral's multicolored windows is famous around the world. Perhaps the most famous and one of the first, is the 12th-century "Notre-Dame de la Belle-Verrière". This window is actually a composite; the upper part, showing the Virgin and child surrounded by adoring angels, dates from around 1180.  The lower part of the window, showing scenes from the Infancy of Christ, dates from the main glazing campaign around 1225. (Wikipedia)

  • Nice sunstar. Fwiw, f/16 also uncovers a few sensor dust spots.

  • I must correct my observation on the sharpness. Your SmugMug photo is 7360x4912 while on DPR it is 1600x1028. I wonder how much overall image quality difference there would be if you also posted ...
  • I took the liberty of viewing some of your SmugMug galleries and came across the same photo you posted here. The SmugMug version is beautifully processed and don't think I would change a thing ...
  • I use DxO PhotoLab so this may not be as informational as you would like. I appreciated the daylight feel to this photo, so did not want to darken it much or go for an artistic rendition.  I try to ...
  • I like the scene/composition a lot.  Wish I could hike that path. fwiw, here is my attempt at editing to taste. Everybody has such different preferences and even such different monitors. Lots of ...

  • What was your intent with this statement? It seems off topic and dismissive. It is not unusual to reference "authorship" with respect to photos. Challenge hosts sometimes include a rule that "you ...
  • I understand and respect your approach. You provided the single word "Powerscourt". That is sufficient for anyone who is curious for more information to do a Google search and get all the ...

    Haha!  I know.  Facts can be so confusing.  Like: is Mars a planet, or a candy bar, or Veronica, or Bruno, or short for marzipan....?  Maybe a picture would help??? Cheers back at ya! 😁
  • Been to Powerscourt.  Stately and beautiful.  Here is the Google Search result. https://www.google.com/search?q=powerscourt&oq=powerscourt&aqs=chrome..69i57j69i61j69i65j69i59j69i61l2&sourceid=chrom ...

    ...and a polite suggestion. I think Sabrina's request is a worthy one, but unlikely of changing much behavior in photo posts. For those who are curious about more information than the poster ...
