Catedral de la Almudena

I took this HDR photo inside Almudena Cathedral (Catedral de la Almudena) in Madrid. Although the cathedral is quite nice it didn't impress me that much. I much more liked neo-romanesque crypt which is nearby - much better atmosphere, you can almost feel history there.

As for editing I went with exposure fusion in Photomatix, then made some global adjustments in Lightroom and finally made local tweaks using luminosity masks in Photoshop.
