Picturing the Paintings

During my trip, there were a few museums that we visited and there were quite a lot of paintings we got to see. But most of the museums had a no-camera policy. But a few I could click from Cathedrals and other museums (where sculptures were primary). I couldn’t capture the painter’s names though.

Something about bringing out the essence of a painting in a photograph always intrigues me. Am I doing it justice or injustice by caging them within my camera lenses ? – I am never sure.

  1. The first three paintings have a sacred eminence to them. In person, their mystical value could capture ones attention for a long while, I imagine.
    Was the fourth painting from a museum?
