The Alhabra is a combined palace/fortress built by the Moors. The original, small structure was built 889 AD. It was rebuilt in the mid-13th century by the Nasrid emir Mohammed ben Al-Ahmar of the Emirate of Granada. In 1492 it became the palace of Ferdinand and Isabells after they removed the Moors from Spain.
Editing was done with Luminar Flex. I used the Develop filter to increase the contrast, shadows, blacks and clarity and reduce the highlights and whites. Then I added the Accent-AI, AI Sky Enhancer and Polarizing filters, then used the Tone filter to make a slight increase in the SmartTone. Next I added Dehaze, Details Enhancer, Remove Color Cast (Auto #1) and used the HSL filter to reduce the luminance in the reds and blues. Lastly I used the Erase too to get rid of some dust spots.

Have you ever imagined what it would be like to live in Medieval times?
Yes, I’d love it
Yes, I’d hate it.
No, I never thought about it.
