Church in San Juan Capistrano...

This church doesn't have stained glass windows, but it seems to glow with it's own color and light. The candles are beautiful, and lights the way for those entering the church. There's a small chapel off to the right that is also quite nice. The church looks very dramatic, yet is simple architecturally, a peaceful place.

To capture this tranquil composition, I made various exposures and merged them to HDR in Photomatix. I used the Tone Mapping Filter, and Nik Color Efex Glamour Glow to enhance the look I remember seeing as entered this picturesque church. Have a wonderful Easter. ~ Deb
