  Mini#36 Get Well Soon, Elliott!
Entry 2 of 19
   
 
Soaring Stairs       ©2017 RobertLavker
Panasonic DMC-GX7       2nd place, 163 points
1/50s, f4, ISO 200, 14mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: reduced shadows, reduced highlights, increased contrast; tweaked curves; transform - skew; filter - unsharp mask       Extra Info: I was inspired by Elliot’s “up down inside out” image that he submitted for the mini challenge “Best of 2015, so far…”, and “great exercise” submitted for the “From above” challenge. Therefore, I am humbly trying to imitate, in some small way, the geometry of stairs that Elliot so admirably captures. I have entitled this image “Soaring Stairs” and hope that Elliot’s health soars upward from now on.

    This is so good on so many levels. No pun intended. Everything works together beautifully.

    thanks for the thoughts and kind words.
yes this works for me. i was at the dali museum in st. petersburg florida a few months back with camera. they don't seem to mind cameras as long as you aren't annoying with flash or tripods. i came away from there with only one shot of his paintings but tons of shots of the architecture of the museum and surroundings. may have to give a link to share some with you.

    I think you captured the sweep of these stairs beautifully. The lighting is just perfect, and I love the angle you have chosen.

    Beautifully done - especially like the contrast of the curving staircase with the linearity of the window panes - and a good tie-in to the theme.

    Good eye. Was this a location you'd shot before and remembered it for the challenge? Just curious...
I love the focus and framing. The light coming through the window is just right.

    A sweeping, dramatic composition that seems to the asking a question? Did you try spot cloning out the down lights?

    I saw couple of Elliott's amazing staircase shots too. I think this is a beautiful shot, love the composition and colors. Great tribute to Elliott. High in my TT.
