Altar View Teguise Church Lanzarote
This picture was taken inside the Church at Teguise, Lanzarote. This is an inland town which was originally the Capital. The Church does not look very special from outside but inside it has beautiful columns and arches and HDR is very good at bringing out the detail.
I have taken this Church on past visits to Lanzarote but this year I was able to bring a different approach with the fisheye lens which I feel add to the curves in the arches reflecting them in the curve at the base.
The picture was taken on a Tripod with a Sony A700 with a Samyang Fisheye lens at 8 mm. 3 raw images 2EV spacing. Opened in Photoshop first and each image noise reduced with Noiseware Pro and saved as tiffs.
The 3 images at 2EV separation were outputted in Photomatix detail enhancer with a custom preset for Church Interiors with adjustments.
The 0EV image was opened. This image was then copied in as a new layer. A black layer mask was used to exclude this. Then a white brush at low opacity was used to build up detail in highlight areas from the windows.
General adjustments in levels and curves to enhance with a layer mask and brush used to exclude highlights.
Brightness and contrast increased with a mask to exclude highlights.
Vibrance layer increase 27 points
Topaz Vibrant preset group Detail 2 preset used to add more detail.
Layers flattened before going on to sharpening.
Duplicate layer Noiseware Pro and a little sharpening.
The healing brush and clone were used to remove sensor dust marks and some distracting highlights.
