About the Image(s)

This picture was taken inside the Corolla Lighthouse on the North Carolina Outer Banks. I particularly liked the shadow of the railing on the wall.
Sony A7III 24mm. ISO 1600, f6.3, 1/13 sec hand held.

I am a sucker for curving stairwells. As you mentioned, I do like the shadow rail enforcement. What if you flip it so it curves the other way?   Posted: 11/03/2019 16:00:29

Bob, you are quite right. It looks much better flipped.   Posted: 11/04/2019 12:36:08

The shadows are very neat, and this is great in BW. I like both versions, your final and the flipped. As a preference, I lean toward your final, but probably because I tend to do things right to left (incorrectly at times). I see no changes needed. There are many details and textures. Very nice.   Posted: 11/10/2019 17:41:57

You are right, the double subject of the object itself and its shadow is great. And hand-held at 1/13--well done. How did you brace the camera? What was the light source?   Posted: 11/10/2019 21:17:31

The juxtaposition of the rail with its shadow brings the image to a higher level. You managed to get a lot of texture on the wall, and everything is perfectly lit. I'm indifferent between the original and the flipped image.    Posted: 11/11/2019 11:28:01
