Went on a photo outing wanting to get a shot of the inside of a church... but unfortunately their was a wedding going on, so only the outside was doable... The church is opposite where I study, so i've always wanted an excuse to go shoot it...

Shot @ 13mm w/tripod, 3 exposure done for my own HDR conversion, but just tonemapped a single RAW for the challenge (editing rules)

- Tonemapped single RAW
- NN
- HSL colorize for the sepia toning
- curves for slight brigtening on church
- slight brightnening of door area and windows w/overlay fill layer
- more brightening on windows an door frame w/selective levels
- contrast curves on church
- gradient overlay on sky
- USM w/large radius for local contrast enhancement
- gaussian blur on sky to smooth out banding issues
- resize+sharpen

You might have me with this if it wasn't green...

I'm not too keen on the green tones but it is relevant to the Irish nature of the pic. I'd have given you an extra point if you'd made part of the pic orange as well for balance ;-)

Don't think this color improves the photo.

Great symmetry in the shot. Don't know about the green hue.

dont like the green would have been a much better photo if it was just its natural colour.

Nice image, but the green just doesn't do it for me.
