Alvastra Abbey (12-16th century)

Posted by
Albert (Sweden, living in Mechelen, Belgium) on 18 November 2011 in Landscape & Rural.

The misty parts were masked in from one the original raws used for the HDR. Applied some softening. Cloned away a small tourist sign. Curves, etc.

Canon EOS 7D 1/4 second F/11.3 ISO 100 18 mm

Fine work Albert, I quite like the softening, and the greens are showing nicely without being over illuminated.
I can imagine how grand it was before its demise.

brilliant compo and frame, and very effective and attractive processing! the "hair" on the wall is fascinating! where exactly is this abbey that i've never heard of?!?

@franz: Thanks Franz. The abbey is close to Linköping in Sweden, more exactly here.

This is brilliant, indeed. You and Jack both are pros at this mastery of photography. What great eyes you both have.

What an exceptional and almost surreal mood of this piece of history! Beautiful capture and rendering!
