Paul I prefer this natural look to your other photos of the church's exterior. I'm not sure what you do them, and to many of your photos, maybe it is HDR

I only use HDR occasionally and usually in church interiors. My camera (Nikon D850) has a d lighting option which I often set when I feel there is deep shadows in the shot - this lightens the shadows but not the highlights. There is also an option in photoshop to adjust shadows and highlights which I occasionally use. The difference in the shots you refer to is the direction of the light which was full on in this shot. The weather didn't help either going from dull to miserable very sharply. I do agree that this shot is the best of the three.

The major difference I can see is the huge difference in image quality between Paul's DSLR (the Nikon D850) and those from his compact camera (the Nikon Coolpix A1000). I see from the EXIF data that the A1000 was used in this shot and some other recent ones of his. To my eyes, the images produced by the A1000 show excessive sharpening and chromatic aberration, typical of small compact zoom cameras. Some people may prefer this effect, as in the old film days some people liked Lomography. Of course the A1000 is a much more convenient camera for travel, because of its small size and its light weight, but for me, the D850 must win on image quality every time.
