    I was drawn to look at your beautiful entry again. I was wondering how you steady your camera for a shot like this? Do you put the camera on the floor or ...?
Oh, and my apologies. I thought I'd added this to my favs, but goofed somehow. I thought I'd picked it as my #2 or #3.

    Congrats on your #2 finish. Is this the same place you shot for the main in the Best of 2017 in monochrome? Just wondering.

    Is this the work of Dr. Lavker? It is meant as a compliment if it is not!

The lighting, color, DOF, and framing are all excellent!!! Bravo.

    The lighting and detail are perfect, and the angle of view really shows these curves in all their glory.

    Very nice colour, angle and curves galore. I would have liked to see some room at the right of the photo but this may have not been possible. I would have cloned out the top left triangle and cracks in the paint.

    Nicely executed - good colour contrast and balanced (long!) exposure

    I feel like I've seen this before. Anyway, great shot, beautiful curves. Well done.

    I expected the cliched spiral staircase image to be represented. But this is a well-shot image nevertheless with beautiful tones. My only criticism would be the too tight framing on the right side.
