St Ignatius, Prague: High Altar

Posted by MadScientist (Düsseldorf, Germany) on 28 October 2010 in Art & Design.

Ignatius' mighty High Altar, and if the light wasn't coming from just behind me, we would be able to see J. G. Heinsch's painting depicting St Ignatius' apotheosis.

If you are interested: Here's yesterday's image as it was coming out of the camera and here's today's image. This is my raw material, the best I could made of a mediocre light situation and when you are not allowed to use a tripod. The difference between these images and the ones I'm presenting here is achieved by using software: 15 to 30 mins per image, then I'm usually satisfied.

@Ronnie 2¢: With some images it works, with others it doesn't. It depends on the intensity of distortion and the subject; sometimes processing adds too much noise and blurriness; the image is lost then!

The whole is so over the top gorgeous and your wonderful photography
shows no limitations. Amazing and unbelievably beautiful.

@P. Morris: Every city should have such a gem, no?

António Pires from Lisbon, Portugal

Outstanding work, I mean, both, the church and the photo.

@António Pires: This church is really magnifient, much more than a photo is able to show. It's strange that it is a bit neglected in tourist guides.

I enjoy even more the closeup, the sharpness of the multitude of details is most satisfactory! You did an excellent processing job!
