I went photo hunting in Frankfurt on Saturday October 23, at the tail end of a week long business trip. I encountered this scene when I wandered into the Cathedral. This candle lit shot was taken handheld at ISO 3200 sensitivity.

Adjusted exposure in RAW import utility; degrained with Noise Ninja 2; in Photoshop, optimized contrast, cropped, cloned out distracting bright spot, resized, sharpened, and converted to JPG.

I would have cropped the top a bit more but I like the overall image very much

nicely done and an excellent idea. I might like to see it without the woman in the shot, seems to break it up a bit.

Great subject matter. But your composition is so neutral that it undermines any drama. The result is it feels like a well lit snap shot.
