Lectern at Tyntesfield House
Taken in the privet chapel of Tyntesfield House near Bristol.

I have edited this a lot more than I usually do hope I haven't over cooked it.

Levels and enhancement in Darktable, then over to Gimp for: mask around the Lectern then curves only to the eagle, reversed the section and increased the level of blur in the background, cloned out some lights and a sign then finally Crop and resize.

An imaginative camera position shown but the Lectern as in your title is not visible. Perhaps a different title might be better but again the Eagle seems to merge with the BG. Maybe using your flash would have helped to bring it out from the similarly coloured BG to make a lovely bright shiny foreground object, which is, after all, your main theme.
I can imagine a super range of pictures here dependent upon sunshine entering via the stained glass windows also if the sun were to be from windows behind or either side of you, perhaps they would provide an interesting light source to use.

The Lectern, if I remember from my choir boy days IS the Eagle, the open Bible placed across the back of its wings, resting on a metal ledge bolted to the wing tips and tail, just visible if you look hard.
A great pov and edit in my opinion.
It shows the Lectern in its correct setting, in front and to the side of the alter with the stained glass windows of the Chancel visible but not intrusive in the background.
I like this loads and think the edit was well worth the time Steve, excellent work Sir.

Went there last year but chose the wrong day as the house was closed, so may return sometime.
Have seen quite a few of these and some are just sparkling, but a good POV chosen here just looking up as it were. I think the crop is a bit tight, and a pity about the noise but the light was not too good Perhaps ???
Anyway well seen and trust you enjoyed the visit, there has been a lot of renovation work there in recent years.

The POV in this image make it very appealing Steve, good detail in the eagle with nothing too distracting in the background. It looks like you had your work cut out in the editing but well worth the time and effort.

Aplogies for the lateness steve, it looks and sounds like you took on a hard editing challenge (with all that shiny metal!) - but came out on top.. love the view and the windows behind, looks like it's about to take off too!
