Real Alcazar Baths

Real Alcazar Baths

Inside the Real Acazares in Seville are these beautiful baths. While it is very dark and one often sees shots that make the baths look rather drab, here I used a long exposure of around 8 seconds and then in post processing boosted the colours to create this image. The baths themselves are called the Baths of Lady María de Padilla and are in fact rainwater tanks.

Gomi Street, Tbilisi

Gomi Street, Tbilisi

Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, is fast becoming one of the must visit tourist destinations. This is a shot of a yellow painted balcony with the spire of the Upper Bethlehem Church in the background. I was fortunate to capture this on a day when the sky was also yellowish. With a little enhancement in lightroom and photoshop, I think the sky compliments the foreground providing the photo with balance.
