Recently I had to stay that night in Canterbury and thought I'd take the opportunity to use my new toy.
I found myself all alone in the grounds of the Cathedral at night. There was low hanging mist everywhere, but I thought I'd practice my low light technique.

What caught my eye was the symetry and lighting

(Hopefully it looks the same as on my screen, I am saving for a monitor and colourmunki)

Its very nice as is. The geometry is straight, the pillar is centered. The one area you can work a little more is reducing highlights just a small amount.

I did this using Adobe Camera Raw, as in the mod, and for colour balance, I tried a reduction in yellow. I prefer the original tone though, with the highlights toned down. Only you can tell which is more like the original!

Banehawi, just had a look at your mod, I can see you altered the WB and exposure slightly. Did you change anything else?
