The photo was taken in Vienna Cathedral. It was very dark and busy. They put some colourful lights on to show the interior of the cathedral, but it made the light darker, even so, people were still busy taking pictures..I tried a few, but they were blured..
Miraculously, I saw a beam of light..
This is an handheld&high ISO image, inevitably they generated a lot of noise&softness on the image..Noise has been reduced , Perspective is corrected,slightly sharpening after resized.. I couldn't sharpen it more, I was worried that the noise would be brought back. Light part, layer mask is used on the window, in order to get more detail back, there is still some CA, I couldn't get rid of. Also, there is a line in the middle, that is the electrical wire for the light underneath the image, I cropped it off. I tried to clone off the wire, but I just couldn't do it...I'm simply very pleased that I could record the moment.. I'll upload it on Critique gallery, anyone who could improve the image, you are very welcome to get a try..Thanks for looking.
