Calaruega 2

My second time in Calaruega.

This was shot inside the Transfiguration Chapel.  I shot the picture using camera metering then decrease exposure in post by up to three stops (the stained glass remains beautiful).  Graduated filters are used on the top right and bottom left portions.  Shadows and blacks were also increased (decrease in luminosity) and then I used the radial filter on the girl to highlight her (bless Lightroom 5’s radial filter).

Slow shutter speed achieved by using the smallest aperture (f22) and ISO 200.  I did not bring out the tripod nor the ND filter so I braced the camera on the steel railing of the bridge.  Came out quite nice after passing through Nik’s Color Efex (tonal contrast) and increasing vibrance of the greens.
