Another from Winchester Cathedral
This is the straight down the middle view of the main Nave of the cathedral, I was pleased to find that all of the seating had been removed I presume due to the wedding taking place in the Quire at the end of the Nave. This was towards the end of the day when light outside was fading and the internal lighting was providind much of the illumination. It balanced out very nicely in exposure terms and no filtration or multiple images were require to make a successful image.

I took a long exposure to ensure that the people mulling around were ghosted to provide a slightl ethereal look to the image. From the RAW file I was able to tie down the variable white balance of the image using the HSL controls and aimed to revel a clear dfiifernce between the daylight illuminated portion and artificially illuminated parts of the image. In Photoshop I tweaked the using separate curves adjustment layers for the lower and upper parts of the image with a soft transition between the two. Finally a subtle diffuse glow on an overlay blend layer a low opacity boosted saturation and contrast subtly in the hightlights.

Exposure 25sec at F10 ISO 100

A really pleasing photo. The colours are soft and gentle. What exposure did you use, other than looooong!?

Excellent shot & very well processed to retain all that beautiful detail. Shame about the ghosts but what can you do?

Works very well, lots of detail. I actually like the people moving about, gives it a feeling of permenance and transience.
