    Saint-Étienne-du-Mont near the Panthéon contains the shrine of St. Geneviève, the patron saint of Paris. Originally constructed in 1222 it was enlarged and restored several times and finally dedicated in 1626.

    You did a lovely job here. When Dick and I photographed it, we saw it as a much duller sandy color. This exposure makes it look lacy and delicate. I'm going to have to revisit my photos and see if I can still match this light airy feeling. Also, it must have taken some maneuvering to get into position for this view. When we were there, areas we wanted to get into were roped off making for awkward shooting angles. In short, I can fully appreciate what you accomplished here. Very nice.

    Thank you Marianne for your very kind comments. I visited twice - the second time because I was not happy with my images from the first visit. I have a number of images from different angles and they all show color, and different colors in the ceiling - probably from different colored stained glass up high. On this second occasion there were no ropes, no people, and I was able to bracket on a tripod. My RAW images are duller but not necessarily sandy, (your white balance?). I did several iterations in Lightroom using just about all the tools and very selectively teasing out the grain and the more subtle pastel colors that are in the stonework, as well as layering in the overblown stained glass windows with a better set of windows from an underexposed version using CS6 and Harold's Hand-HRD technique. I appreciate your comment about lacy and delicate. I was originally going for crisp and was planning on a close crop, and it occurred to me as I worked on the stonework that I had something else evolving.
