    Whats the first thing you do when you get to take photos inside a Cathedral?
    Play dead of course :D

    Shot in Raw, adjusted white balance and slight desaturation.

    What do you guys think?

    Also i posted a Infrared shot from outside the Cathedral here http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=65146
    In the critique section, as I need help with it :)

    Thanks for checking it out.

    Beautiful structure! Very nice perspective.

    I'm mixed on the desaturation. I'd be curious to see the whole shot b/w too compare.

    You asked for it :D I edited the original post.

    Now has original picture, desaturated and the B&W.

    Which is the best?

    For the structure itself, I prefer the b/w.
    But I think you achieved your effect nicely with the slight desaturation. The person just blends in too much in the b/w version.
    Good choice :)

    And thanks for taking the time to post an edit!

    Yeh. I liked the structure in B&W. But I'm not a big fan of selective colouring.
    I think the body blends in nicely and isn't the first thing that you spot. I wanted it to blend in a little. So didn't want it to be any less saturated than I made it. :D

    I think you made the right choice to go with the desaturated one. It's to me, definitely the best one. :)

    excellent work

    I think I prefer the semi destaturated version. On this monitor it looks a little dark at the bottom, where the body is. Pretty good show tho :)
