Steel Stairs

By NDODS    
Good day to you at ePz.

As you will be able to tell from the time of upload I have had a rather torrid night, and instead of disturbing Julie's sleep I decided to catch up and upload.

I must thank you all for you great comments and votes following yesterdays uploas 'Egrets in the Mist'. A following mention going to young James (JamesMoorePhotography) for presenting me with his User Award.

Today's upload is in keeping with yesterdays upload in that it is monochrome, and that the weather was somewhat inclement. The reasoning behind the image, was quite simplky I liked the way that the strong geometrical shapes and lines wormed their way through the rugged hillside.

I hope that you all have a great day. For me who knows, maybe a quiet affair..

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrin

Lovely mono with nice composition.
What a gorgeous composition, Nathan, almost feels like a mathematical sequence. I love this.

Top creation. Well done Nathan.

I like the light caught by the aluminum banisters and the geometrical repetition of the steps. Well seen and taken and works great in mono, Nathan.
Great mono image, Nathan. Sorry to hear you have had a bad night. Keep well.

Love the subject and I think mono is a good choice but I would prefer more contrast to add to the dramatic geometry.

Nice one. You have the handrail starting from the corner top left, I'd be inclined to crop a sliver off the bottom of the frame to have the lower rail exit into the bottom right corner.
And I would like to see more contrast. OK, I'm hard to please...

Well spotted Nathan. I'd have never seen this potential image.
I think because you like the image is reason enough to take the picture. And I like this too.

Nathan think this is rather special sort of reminds me of the struggles in life, never straight and always seem uphill. Excellently composed.

Hi Nathan
This is such a nice simple B+W image, I agree with Moira that the hand rail ending at the bottom corner is a better crop in my opinion I also notice a slight slant on the level steps so a quick adjust with the straightening tool seems to give it a good geometric corner to corner. (I tried it first and I think it looks good)

Nice work Erik

ps the readers award tells it all so my suggestions are just that take care Erik
