This is an image of the Roman Baths in Bath, UK with Bath Abbey in the background. This is a shot from the archives I got round to processing from 2011.

The picture was taken handheld with a Sony A700 with a sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom at 12mm.  3 raw images 2EV spacing. Opened in Photoshop first and each image noise reduced with Noiseware Pro and saved as tiffs.
