#918. Bective Abbey Vestibule

June 10, 2013  •  3 Comments

Bective Abbey was a pleasant surprise to us on our recently completed Ireland trip.  It wasn't on our original agenda but rather was an impromptu stop on the way to something that was.  It is just ruins of course but what remains is extremely well preserved and since it isn't a major tourist attraction we had the place mostly to ourselves.

Yeah, I'm not sure they do exactly the same thing, but probably close. I'm sure the issue is web based. I've seen it many times online and the print usually comes out better. Funny comment on spooky; had to laugh at that one.

Thanks for the suggestions Doug. I hit it pretty hard with a Structure adjustment in NIK Viveza which to my eye is about the same effect as the Detail Extractor in Color Efex. The detail looks good in print but doesn't translate perfectly to the computer screen. As far as your other comment goes...everything looks spooky to me at night so I tend to stay inside after dark! :-)

Like the B&W treatment. Might like to see more details actually. Detail extractor in Nik Color Efex Pro maybe with tonal contrast . Looks like this would be a spooky place at night.
