Outside Fitting In


This chapel skillfully both stands out from its environment and fits into it, providing an obvious place of refuge and contemplation in the midst of a refuge. (Note: the small size of the submission fails to show some of the subtle improvements I've made — I pulled Clarity to -100, softening everything (the trees were my target though no masking was used for this adjustment) and pushed Structure to 27 which, due to the fine detail in the brickwork, brought back sharpness to the chapel. The other subtleties of linear-masked Saturation (right to left) and a separate linear-masked Exposure/Contrast in the sky, diagonally from the top left corner) should be visible, but the range of detail I created is lost at 1200 pixels.)
