So I recently visited Bath in United Kingdom. Had a stroll around the location until the point when I found this Abbey called Bath Abbey. One of the architecturally most beautiful places I’ve been to. The place was decorated with intricate details from head to toe – by that I mean from rooftop to the floor. Every square inch of that place had some or the other intricate detail hidden with a beautiful mastery of work. I decided to bracket some shots here to process as an HDR later and here are my outputs.
Find these on 500px and rate them respectively:

Bath Abbey – one of the most beautiful churches I’ve been to. The serenity that settled in my soul after entering this place is something I won’t ever be able to express in words, even if I try. The intricate amount of detail in architecture, the way the windows lit up the ceiling, the calmness in the lights of the candles, the wide openness of the place – it just feels nice.
I couldn’t stop myself from taking pictures, but I also wanted to just sit and close my eyes. Listen to the silence and dissolve in a moment of serenity.
Experimenting with HDR in Photomatrix Pro with some High Passes and CC in Photoshop CS6.
See you soon.

While taking some pictures of this interesting bike I found in Kings Cross (London), I accidentaly framed this couple in the background bokeh. I love the way I still can see the guy smile even though its blurred. It shows how the couple is still having fun in this journey of life just like how the kid must be enjoying riding this bike. It isn’t the journey, its how you make it worthwhile.
Another self portrait I tried with a different source of lighting for removing the shadows. Result was completely unexpected during the first try, but yeah, pretty amazing the way it overlaps the shadows giving the picture a dark but psychedelic feel to it.
