Photographer's Note

Another Romanesque church of Avila... At this pace, the travelogue of this trip to Spain won't be finished before next Summer. :-) I hope I don't bore you too much.

Its construction has supposedly started in 1100 and most of it was finished before the end of the 12th century. I have read somewhere that it suffered a major reform in the 14th century. It lies on Plaza de Santa Tereza, which looked to me as one of the most lively squares of the town, at least outside the medieval city walls, which have a gate on the opposite side of the square (behind the POV).

I hope it hasn't a very unnatural look, because I had to use an elaborated PP on this one because of the huge differences of light, as the sky was much brighter than the rest, which was under shadow because the sun was already setting. I began by trying using just the level curves and masks blended in divide mode, then Shadows & Highlights but I ended up producing 3 images with different exposure compensations from the raw file and blended them together.
