Bath Abbey Tower Tour View

Bath Abbey Tower Tour View
The Shot

WhenI visited Bath Abbey over Christmas an announcement came up that a a Tour of the Abbey Tower was about to start, irresistible of course! The Tour includes the Bell ringing room, the Bells and the roof of the Abbey and top of the Tower with great views of the City.

The picture was taken handheld with a Sony A700 with a Samyang 8mm fisheye lens at f8. There were 3 raw images 2EV spacing for HDR. Opened in Photoshop first and each image noise reduced with Noiseware Pro and saved as tiffs.

The HDR was created using Photmatix and tonemapped using detail enhancer. I went for a less natural HDR than I usually go for as I thought that suited the image better. I wanted to make the Abbey stand out more from the other buildings so went for selective colour using a layer mask and brush.

Additional enhancements were made in Topaz and adjustment layers in Photoshop.
