Yes, Chris has seen it, Nikki. The colors are different than anything else I have taken at the cathedral. That's because I shot with my white balanace on irridescent lights at +2. And I had my camera set to "Vivid" on Optimize Photo. My ISO was also at the highest level. It really turned out different. Thanks for your comment.
