I know it looks as if it's painted, or at least severely digitally enhanced. But it's not.
Elements 9 helped me burn in tones at the top right, resize, and add some sharpening.
Otherwise, this is exactly as it came off the card.
An amazing building - part tourist attraction, part place of worship. I suspect the styling of "Alien" owed a little to Gaudi's architecture, as well.
Although Gaudi died in 1926, the cathedral is still unfinished, and Wikipedia tells me it's a world heritage site.
Definitely worth the visit, whatever you make of it!
