This week’s after-before image is an interior photo of the Leon Cathedral. I wanted to do something simple that showed the power of shooting RAW and processing in Lightroom, and with a just few simple steps we can straighten the columns, bring back the detail in the stain glass window, colour correct for the yellow cast. Below is the original image.
In Lightroom in the Lens Correction panel, three simple clicks; Enable Profile Correction, Remove Chromatic Aberration, and Auto Upright. In the Basic panel I moved the highlight slider to -100 and clarity +25, Vibrance +25, shadows +61, and I used the auto white balance to tone the image. It always amazes me how just a few steps, and Lightroom can make a difference to an image.
The Leon Cathedral is one of the great Cathedrals in Spain, for more before and after image visit Stacy’s after-before blog and see what the other photographers have done this week.
