You've done a nice job of keeping the lines close to straight, which can be really tough. On a comp like this, where you are centering the image, you might consider cropping the right to match the left. Noise level appears to be very high, but salvageable. Not sure what PP program you're using, but Noiseware Pro can clean this up nicely. I think selectively pulling down the Ev on the stained glass windows in the center would even out the image. At the the top portions seem to be on the verge of being blown out. Other thing I'd do is clone out the shiny silver lights on the ceiling...they don't fit with the rest of the image.

BTW, I took the trip through your other Ireland images. I'm jealous! Spent 10 days there in 2011, and would love to return. Your image 103 looks like Dunquaire Castle, which has to be one of the most photogenic castles I saw! And nearly every town and village overflowed with character. Thanks for the trip!

Ken, Thank you for the tips. You've given me a lot to work on! Thanks. I will go back and mess around a bit..

As for the castle, you are correct. Only down side is that we were on a tour bus, and it was a quickly pull over on the side of the road and everyone piles out with there cell phones to take a picture :)! I saw some opportunity further up the road shoot back at the castle (right of the picture shown) but "there was no time for that!" That was a long day...

Good shot. Might try to keep a bit more detail in the windows.

Nice looking church (and capture). I agree that it would be best to try to keep as much detail in the stained glass as possible. Even a two exposure blend would help a great deal. You may be able to selectively adjust the exposure of the windows if the original capture has enough raw detail. The posted photo (of course) doesn't have enough rez to make much progress.

I think this is a gorgeous shot. I like the dropped exposure in the windows.

What I would try next is to selectively saturate the colors in the windows. Lower your tool percentage and bring the saturation up slowly. You'll have more control.
