Levels,color-balance,neat-image, hue/sat,curves,crop.
Took away one small sensor dust spot-
Hate to spoil the magic but this ring on the right corner is just a lens flair. Still it took some time to spot it right,
Little more to the left,click. Little more up-click and so on ;)
"The soul" is me jumping in the capture. Taken in 32 sec so i waited for the first 10-15 sec and than jumped in, looking in the direction at the flair i already spotid at the corner.

Could have made it better if this would have bin advanced ed but still hope you will like it:)

I'm glad it wasn't advanced - I think it looks raw and real, but of course with the lens flare, very magical. Glad to see this in the top.

Would love to see you re-edit this using all the tools. It deserves the full treatment. Great photo and great imagination and use of flare and long exposure. I know it is very tedious to get it right when you know you cannot use advanced editing. Great job.

Good job. My initial though was a high edited image, but after reading your description, I can just say "well thought, well executed".

surreal but not really on theme...

Addresses the concept of the challenge. Excellent use of lens flare. How was the figure made transparent with basic editing?

congrats for the photo. very good idea and realization. the only little problem could be the bit of overexposition on the house but probably it could be interpreted as the heaven's lights :) 10

Very creative take . THe distortion of the chuch is a very strange effect, but that is one cool ring that the 'traveler' is looking at

Good idea to use glare rim as portal :) Even nicer idea to use (yourself?) a person to put into this theme. I like it :)

A really strange and captivating image. I like the light rings in the sky. The front left of the church building is somewhat blown out, but in general this is an intriguing image.

magnificent. it doesn't look to me like something that could be done in basic editing so i think it's just wondrous. you're my 10!
