Playing around in PSE2; used Distortion Tool to the minimize tilt effect visible in the columns, then mirrored original image (left side) to create this impossible cathedral nave.

Thank you, Kerby! I'd love to see the cathedral with light like this, in reality!

Thank you, Cindy! I want to reshoot the same shot next fall (when the sunlight does this amazing show!) now that I know more about my camera.

Not sure what happened, Lynne Hoad, with your message. I was notified of it, but it is attached to a different Photo ID than this thread:
"Gorgeous image Christopher, for playing around, it's an exceptionally beautiful and clever shot. Love the colors too!!"
Anyway, thanks again!

Well, thanks, Brinn! This one I think is a tad too dark in the ceiling, but if I opened it up in the shadows, I'd lose that amazing color pretty fast... :(

Thanks, Tamera, Shaon & Brian! This started as one of my very early shots (since starting with a digital camera) and it took me this long to think about "mirroring" it. Would be something else to walk in and actually ever see this kind of effect!

Thank you Don! I liked the original, but was never 100% satisfied with how dark the ceiling was, for a "stand alone" shot... however, that darkness turned out to help me blend the mirror-image in with the original, I think, for this image.

Thank you, Lorri! It lent itself very well to a mirror treatment, to "complete" the gothic arch suggestion.
