Reading alone

By duratorque    
Taken at the British Museum. I noticed this girl reading a book on the stairs. Used wide angle lens to widen the distance.

I like this alot but I'm being Miss Picky tonight, is there anyway you could tone down the building above her head?

Good stair shot, agree though about the above the head building distracting from the stair emphasis. Click for the capture!

EXcellent use of perspective!
I'd just try isolating the aforementiond building and lighten it up so that it blends into the background a little easier.

Nice composition. Can try to change it to B/W? May be good too.. click!
Mmm like this - but agree with above in that it may look even more stunning in b&w...

Powerful, but I agree with aop. It's cheating but I would use the wall texture to the left and clone that to fill the background area. I would also rotate a few degrees clockwise to straighten the photo using the second step down as the horizontal reference point.
