Bath Abbey on a Wet Night

Bath Abbey on a Wet Night
The Shot

This is a shot looking from the main shopping street towards the Abbey. There was light rain at the time so I set the camera up under a sheltered area.

I took the shot while staying with family in Bath over Christmas

The picture was taken with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom at 16mm with a Tripod. 3 raw images 2EV spacing. Opened in Photoshop first and each image noise reduced with Noiseware Pro and saved as tiffs.
