Here we go, this is the shot i was so eager to present...

Fully processed image from top to bottom, nothing is manipulated though, it is all as i was shot. I did spend a lot of time in the lines correction and transforming them to look as straight as possible, the tonal variation did create a huge problem and the banding was a pain in the ass, thanx to some tips from Joel Tjintjelaar & Julia Anna Gospodarou i somehow managed to get rid of the most visible parts.

I did spend almost 14 hours editing this piece, and i did shoot 3 different exposures and i did combine them in the end, and then Levels and Curves is the most used tool here, also perspective control to give a shape, Dodge and Burn, and thanx to Nik Software and Silver Efex Pro 2 for making all this much easier than it actually is
