St. Dympna’s Altar

St. Dympna’s altar and window detail at the St. Dympna’s church located in County Mayo, Ireland. I was very impressed by the construction of the church, their use of the local materials and how well everything fit together. I could not help but imagine how services were held at this church during the difficult Irish winters. Making the windows narrow and the walls thick was their main way to protect themselves from the elements.

This image of St. Dympna’s Altar was taken with my Sony A7R II using my Sony FE 24-70mm f/4 Lens set on 24 mm. The camera was set on Manual mode with the aperture set at f/8, shutter speed at 1/320th of a second and the ISO set at 100. I hand-held the camera for this image. This is a single image processed in Lightroom and completed in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
