Hi.

Congratulations on your selected subject (staircase) and your positioning for capturing the width and grace of this construction.

If you don't mind I will make some suggestions that could possibly make this picture more interesting.

Viewing it form the thumbnail picture in the gallery I thought it was devoid of human presence. -Nothing wrong with people in some architectural pictures, they help the viewer establishing an understanding of the space.- As I clicked in to view it closely I noticed the presence of a woman, I think her positioning does not flatter your image. To me the best location she could be when you were firing the shutter would be the broad step level with the third side-light from the bottom. You could have her whole figure and a model providing some life in a rather graphic background, presenting its exact function.

I think I would have shot it without using the aperture priority function, probably manual or ata shutter speed that according to your taste, either freeze the moment and her movement, or prolong her presence in the picture creating thus an airy figure.... (boooo); or you could try both as people would go uI and down this staircase.

That comes to the point I was wanting to underline. Picture taking, of such spaces, requires patience. if you waited a bit longer she could have been off our sight, or you could have another person following her to that direction. The good thing is that you have found an excellent spot from where you can take pictures and If I am not mistaken your camera can fire the shutter quietly without making your human figures aware of your purpose.

I will vote for it. The format and the lens-senssr combination are great in showcasing the space. The rest is up to you.

I omitted to say that the positioning of the lady I proposed satisfies the rule of thirds.

Ditto. Sod the rule of thirds.
It's a very striking shot with great composition and detail.
I'd say you shot it the way YOU wanted to and that's fine with me!
Deffo get's my vote. Wink

Really like the composition and end of the sweep of the staircase ends in the centre of the frame leading the eye into the pic and towards the figure (which is well placed) in my humble opinion. Ruls are there to be broken. I break them all the time! Gets my vote and mono really suits. Paul
