    The first is a nice composition with the walkway (?) (reminds me of cloisters) disappearing in the distance and its light so different, it almost looks like a picture on the wall.
    The noise of the high ISO bothers me some, though, more so in the second. Wouldn't a run through NeatImage help here, what do you reckon?

    filtered through neatimage (but I am a total klutz with that program so I can't speak for the results.)

    That looks much better in my opinion. The photo cleaned up well.

    I love how you used the mirror. Did you do any HDR for this?

    Nothing fancy done with this. A single jpg from a raw. A duplicate layer masked to allow the window to be levelled.

    nice to see the first images of your trip :)

    for a start just a comment on the use of neatimage, it can be easily overdone, and then textures disappear and parts of the image start to look plastic-like.

    For most part of the image, your try with neatimage gave a good result, really improving the image. however, in some areas too much detail got lost and surfaces look artificially smooth/hazy. IMHO this happened with the white cloth wrapped around the statue and some of the very brightly lit surfaces.

    You could try to play with the settings, but then more grain for the rest of the image might remain visible ... or you apply neatimage with different settings to different areas of the image (through photoshop).

    If the full version comes with more complete - or any - documentation of how the program should best be used, I would gladly purchase it.

    Does anyone know?

    Hmm, I purchased the pro version, but cannot remember if i could download a documentation ...

    but what about this one:
    http://www.neatimage.com/userguide.html

    I never really looked into any documentation though, just learned by (lots of) playing ;) .
