About the Image(s)

This was taken in the Capitol building in Richmond . We gave ourselves a day for exploring the city but the weather was horrendous. It had torrential rain all day “ we got soaked twice when we ventured out.
We spent a long time inside this building trying to take some worthwhile pictures. I liked the angular spiral staircase, but I didn’t have a tripod with me, so I was balancing the camera on the handrail and using a high ISO. I also forgot to change the WB so the first task in processing was to click on fluorescent to remove the overall yellow colour.
This actually produced a good level of contrast, although I have lightened the shadows a little. I did take another shot while someone was walking down the stairs but I didn’t like the ghostly effect as it broke up the pattern. I added a touch of clarity, and cropped off my toes! I altered the crop angle to make the square at the bottom line up horizontally, even though this removed some of the steps etc all round. Maybe I should have left it at an odd angle.
ISO 100, 12mm, F11, 0.8 sec
