However, I'm not a really big fan of shooting churches. I don't know why frankly speaking. I just prefer landscapes to them. But when I was in Madrid I couldn't resist taking some photos in Neo-romanesque crypt near (or rather below) the cathedral because the light there as well as textures were pretty amazing. After seeing that, cathedral didn't look that beautiful to me so I just shot a few photos there.
Above photo was fused using Exposure Fusion processing method in Photomatix Pro. Then I tuned it using luminosity masks to get the final look. The last step was converting the image to sepia and blending it with the original one to get the tonality I wanted.
