Saint Patrick's Cathedral NYC

This is a night shot of St. Patrick's Cathedral on 5th Avenue in New York City. I really liked how the lighting accentuated the gothic lines. They were doing some work to the bottom so I shot upward to avoid the obstructions.

 

This shot was taken in color and converted to black & white. There are buildings on either side which I simply painted over since they were just a distraction. I did some minor perspective correction as well.

 

Reworked to do some more intense dodging and burning to even out some of the darker areas of the facade. Also borrowed some pixels from one side of the image to eliminate a bright light on the other side. The original show can still be seen here
