  Mini#29 Best of 2015, So Far...
Entry 7 of 33
up down inside out?       ©2015 elliott
Panasonic DMC-FT5       7th place, 140 points
1/4s, f3.3, ISO 100, 30mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
Post-Processing: resize and minor usm       Extra Info: i think a lot of us would rather call these 'favorites' than 'best of'.
i like this one for the geometry. when i look at it, the part that i know is furthest away starts to look like i'm looking down on a cone shape. anyway, it is one of a few that will print well.

    I second ysal's comment.
Mind you I think you should return the camera and stay out of the Main LOL Good luck with shooting on your trip.

    This was in my top 3. Such an awesome shot. I thought it would finish higher.

    Different take on the spiral staircase, like the oval shapes created.

    Great composition and clarity - makes me dizzy just looking at it.

    Fantastic shot, love the angle. Great lines leading my eye all the way to the top (or is that bottom?) One of my top picks for sure.

    thanks for the feedback. i'm surprised that no one asked if i had tried bw. i did, and it lost something in the 'translation'. the muted color adds something to this shot i believe.
if you look at the exif you might see that this is shot number 200 on this camera. mostly i have just been doing test shots to get familiar and comfortable with it and hope to use it in some extreme environments next month. i came away from this outing with plenty of 'notes to self'. it is a great little camera and lets me participate in the main category here.

    Love the symmetry and detail. Lighting is great! My favorite this round.

    Nice though we have seen many variations of this sort of short, the off angle and lighting make my top 10.

Jul 5, 2015
    It is one of my favourites for sure. Excellent shot and well presented. You have used thelight very well.

Jul 5, 2015
    In my top 3. A great vantage point.

    Striking geometry , as you point out, but something about the angle makes the stairway look as though it's been squashed into an elliptical shape.

Jul 4, 2015
    Took me some time to get my mind around this subject but once I mastered it I can appreciate the quality of the shot, excellent, all the way to the bottom.(or top?)

    you have two for the price of one with "cone" and funnel effect. I agree with your comments about favourites rather than best of
