Fabulous stairwell. You have captured the depth and form beautifully. If this were mine (I wish) I would tone down the highlights a bit, but hey, this is yours, not mine.

Well spotted here - nice picture. Allow me some critique however.

1. As regards the highlight comment above, I tend to agree with Lynne, they might need some toning down as the contrast is too harsh between the shadow areas and the highlight area.

2. Moreover, there seem to be areas where chromatic abberration is visible, you might need to check if you can fix this if you still have the RAW file for your shot.

3. Cleaning - there are some areas where a bit of cloning would have helped. There seems to be (white) litter in the bottom left area of the picture, that distracts a bit. I would clone it out, I don't think it should be a hard job to fix.

4. And finally, I think the image looks a bit over-sharpened, particularly in the details on the staircase railing. I think a slightly softer image would look better, but that's just my opinion here.

Still you get my vote for attracting my attention and making me want to write some stuff. Well done!

Alistair

I've edited the picture a bit and turned into a duo-tone version. If you want I can either send the edit by email, or in better EPZ style, I could upload as a Modification. For that latter option, you need to turn mods on though.

Let me know!
