I shot this a few weeks back at Winchester Cathedral. There was a wedding going on and as a result very few visitors were in the cathedral as the main attraction of the flooded crypt was not accessible during this time, As the light began to fade and the interior lights were switched on I spotted this view down the left nave looking towards the public entrance. I waited until the light had faded just enough that the artificial lighting became the dominant light source and composed this shot.

I shot a single frame in and exposed for the mid-tones allowing the extreme highlights to burn out to emphasise the lighting. I processed for a quite saturated punchy look in camera raw 4.3 and lightened the upper half of the image using a low opacity duplicate layer blended to screen with a soft gradient mask approximately following the line of the lights to the left of the image. I then dodged and burned some of the more prominent features of the architecture in the ceiling and also in the stone floor to bring out detail and texture. Finally I corrected a slight magenta cast to the illuminated portion of the column to the left edge of the frame using a hue saturation adjustment layer.

Exposure 15sec @ F13.0 ISO 100 28mm Focal Length.

Hope you like, Ben

Hi Bokeh, no problems getting straight lines on a 28mm. Its an L series lens so pretty low distortion, helped along by the fact that my camera is 1.6 crop in the field of view.
