About the Image(s)

ISO 100, 15mm, f/16, 13s
This photo was taken in one of the staircases inside the Palmer House, Chicago. I tried different mono colors and found this seems the best. I'm still hesitated to make adjustment to the brightness near the top.

These circular staircases are always a joy to photograph and the unusual angle you have used here takes it out of the ordinary. I don't think the brighter light at the top is a detraction, if anything I think it adds to the scene. Well done   Posted: 08/14/2019 19:25:49

Hi Jane - this composition is surely engaging, I really like it, and I agree with Barbara, the bright light is really not a distraction. However, though I like the heavy contrast for this particular interpretation, perhaps a bit Dodging (or lightening) of the handrails and the concrete base they are anchored to would be a viable alternative, and would surely balance even more with the bright light at center. This could be completed while still in color in PSCC, for example. Just a thought.   Posted: 08/15/2019 11:37:37
