One of two spiral staircases at Delaval Hall, a National Trust property in the north east of England.
This was taken from the bottom of the staircase looking up.

I love this composition. Very well seen. Interestings stairway
This is an amzing shot, I can't see any way to improve it without destroying it's natural beauty.
Thanks to nellabella and Bufpuf2009. I was pleased with the shot in general but I was concerned about the blue door which is open (there isn't anyway I could shut it myself). It could be argued it detracts from the lines of the composition. Mainly I was concerned that I didn't notice it in the viewfinder !
well I didn't even register the blue door until I read your comments above! It's a good composition, don't sweat it!
I had not noticed it either....I love the circles and angles...well done!
Canít say that I was bothered by the blue door or even really noticed it. Iíve made a feeble attempt at removing it as youíve enabled mods. Hope that I havenít ruined your picture. Rob
Thanks Rob - a well exectuted removal, not feeble at all
It works just as well with or without the blue door in my opinion. Excellent capture.
A warm welcome to EPZ, landscapepics and thanks for the upload.
There are some pleasing colour harmonies here in the stairs and the walls, nicely offset by the white edges to the stairs. It works best for me if I look at it as a pattern picture rather than as a shot of a circular staircase. I think this is because you have not taken the shot centrally, looking straight up to the top, so I find it difficult to follow the stairs around.
I shouldn't worry too much about the blue door. It's not very intrusive and the blue blends well with the other colours.
It's good work, well exposed and sharp etc and gives us a fresh take on the usual straight up the middle staircase shots.
Hope you enjoy the site
I flipped the shot around to try and lead my eye into it a bit more, its often worth a flip and/or rotate for abstract shapes. Hope you like the idea.
Very well seen, but very un-nerving. To me, it is on it's side, and I have to turn my head to look at it 'properly'. Surely it needs a -90 degree flip as second mod. (90 degree anti clockwise)
Cath, Stewart, and Paul - thanks for those thoughtful comments. I can certainly see the benefit of the flip - I find it difficult to accept a flip when I know the site, and how it actually was - but to someone not knowing the site, and examining the picture in the abstract, it certainly makes sense. I did deliberately take the picture off-centre, for two reasons (a) I wanted to reduce the amount of white ceiling visible at the top of the staircase, to even out the exposure (b) to make the shot a bit different to others I had seen.
Thanks again to everyone.
It's a bit unnerving until I realised you're looking up, not down!
