Lancaster Priory and less noise

Yesterday I showed you two techniques to darken an image. This was done to limit distractions and to reduce noise. Noise is not necessarily a bad thing as it adds texture to the photo and sometimes photos are too 'smooth' but in the yesterday's photograph of Lancaster Cathedral and today's photo of Lancaster Priory my preference is for less noise.

The second photo has simply been made darker. I haven't used the burn tool because I think the distinct light in the bottom left of the photograph is part of its interest rather than a distraction.

Happy snapping
