Let me start by saying that I should have taken this photo a couple of hours earlier when the sunlight was falling on the front surface of the church. Also, it is metered for highlights, but still at least one stop underexposed (for highlights).
Now I only have this photo and it’s very challenging for me to bring up all the dark areas while keeping the sky and without introducing too much of the artifacts (like halos). I’m really interested and would like to see how you would approach such photo in your raw converter of choice.
