Monmouth Church 2
Following on from my last image from this Church this time looking in to the Apse, the edit was much more difficult and I have had trouble controlling the noise in the image.

Another smashing indoor shot of this fine church Steve and I love that splendid Norman arch with the stained glass window beyond. Your fine use of the software had come up trumps again and done an excellent job of controlling the lights and darks and leaving much to enjoy. I'm not sure if it's lens distortion or clumsy congregation that's pulled the RH rear pew out of alignment but a little tweak will cure that, however, the bright line down the centre of the shot really is distracting and could do with toning down somewhat methinks. A fine shot nonetheless Steve, very well done.

I meant to mention earlier that I think the image could do with a little more sharpening, somewhere between +30 and +50 I think should do it. Compressing images for the web and The Studio plays havoc with many parts of the image and is always a compromise but almost invariably, images for web viewing require this extra bit of sharpening to get them looking right.

Thanks for that Keith a very good point

The bright line down the centre of the pews draws us into the main part of the image but is a tad bright, other than that the exposure and composition are very good with the Apse very nicely lit, making the most of the beautiful window.

A gorgeous shot Steve, you're certainly making good use of the 70D.
Summed up perfectly by Keith so I will just nod in agreement, excellent shot.

Another nice shot of a church interior and some good advice for some additional editing.
My thoughts were that it could do with more contrast, and if the bright line mentioned by Peter could be toned down it may be better.
But a good attempt at a tricky subject, well done.

Not quite the same impact for me as your previous church interior but technically little wrong with it other than what has already been suggested by the Wise Ones. I quite like the highlight on the divider down the pews; it acts as a good lead-in.
