    In 1936 the cornerstone of my church was set. The membership has dwindled over the past few decades but we all, old and young, enjoy the peace that it brings to us through God. One striking feature of this church is the stained glass windows. For almost 70 years these windows have survived the fiercest storms, street ball games, and age... without damage.

    The calming affect that overcomes you once inside is very strong. You feel the higher presence.

    Faith's strength shines through

    Nice composition and post processing, Patrick.
     
  3. I like this shot, Patrick. It's so different from other stained glass windows. It has a very unique appearance.

    Very nice! I like the framing and the nice lighting. My only nitpick is the hotspot on the railing at the bottom. It looks like it was unavoidable.

    Thanks everyone for the nice responses. This was my submission in the Challenge 7 too.

    Gilbert,

    Any idea how I can remove that hot spot. It was unavoidable in my composition when I took the picture but would entertain any ideas on how to remove it.

    Thanks again everyone,
     
  11. Patrick I am no PS expert but I think it could easily be cloned out.

    If you mean the reflection on the rail, I would probably use the Burn tool on a smallish radius set to highlights with a low exposure (maybe less than 5%). Then repeatedly brush over it until the brightness has been reduced to the point where it is less obtrusive.

    If you do this on a duplicate layer, it is a none destructive edit.

    There are greater experts than me on the forum who can probably give you alternatives.

    Hope this helps,


    Andy
