    This is a great image for the theme. Just too bad the exposure is a wee bit off. With better exposure, I am sure this image would have finished much higher.

    I still think this is really nice - other than the exposure, I think this was the best shot!

    I like the light and ark areas, they add depth. A bit too much light on the face though, it could possibly be improved by some localized adjustment. Nice composition and a beautiful smile!

    Hi folks.

I agree with your comments about the exposure. It could had better light balance in some areas, the trouble appeared because this framing was just possible on the top of the tower, were the stairs ended and the light came from a permanent (and bright) opened door.

To get two shots would be a good idea also (thanks Jade O.)

To Forkcandles: I didn't knew that about the defenders, no body told me that on my preview visits to the castle.

If its possible to correct the over exposition I will upload it =)

Greetings.

    nice photo, though exposure could be more uniform

    Nice shot and concept. The ladies face seems over bright

    I like the idea presented here! I wish the face wasn't overexposed though. Good luck in the voting!

    Wow -that staircase is really confining!. Love the angle of the shot - it makes for a really interesting composition

    Nice framing! A bit underexposed on the top right, and overexposed on the bottom right that could have been balance out by taking multiple exposures and merging the results. However, no real harm done to one of the best images in this challenge.

    a good looking down picture with human interest . circular steps in castles were always anticlockwise so the sword arm of the defender was unhampered

    Great effect of your point of view. The sweeping curve of the stairs adding a very nice sense of movement!

    A great idea...though I feel the person rather takes over the image.

    What a beautiful face! This is showing a pathway but to me much more an environmental portrait. It jumps off the page of entries and for that it is going to rank high no doubt. The lighting looks like it was tough and is a bit harsh on her face.

    This is good so I'm going to be critical. Great immediate impression; great colours, unique perspective, human interest, abstract geometric patterns, textures, composition, contrast, framing, and free of any unnecessary elements. The blown highlights in the face are so blown as to be a notable negative since this is the focus of the shot. The other blown highlights I can live with and around the edge actually enhance the image giving it a high key effect. This calls for TWO shots, one as you have taken it and another to get the face properly exposed. Then you would have gone from good to great.
