About the Image(s)

This is another image from my Toronto workshop. Frank Gehry designed a staircase for the Art Gallery of Ontario. It is clad in a beautiful warm red Douglas Fir. The twists and turns and the different light provide an almost unlimited number of angles to capture. But I decided B&W suited this image best.

I think that this is a very good architectural image...I like the way the swirl leads you to the light at the top. I'm assuming you needed to shoot this handheld...if so you may have wanted to consider shooting at a higher f-stop and lowering the shutter speed a bit...a tripod here would have enabled you to go to a higher f-stop and capture more detail in the staircase. But overall, well done!

So simple yet so effective. This had to be in monochrome.   Posted: 11/17/2023 06:27:45

I love John's comment and fully agree. Why let color compete with these wonderful shapes and lines that mono focuses our attention on. It is interesting that your crop cuts off part of the swirl on the left, right and top and this helps keep us focused on the center of this wondeful composition.   Posted: 11/25/2023 19:03:10
