Default Stairs in the Old Courthouse

Before I do any final tweaking on this photograph, any suggestions for improvement will be appreciated. The Old Courthouse was rocking today with a school tour and some type of town hall meeting with the mayor of St. Louis. I had to wait a few hours for things to calm down. Thanks everybody for taking your time to look at this photograph...

Thats one interesting image. Not sure what else you can do with it.

I love the banisters. And so -- as one might not expect -- is the stairs' underside. Very nicely done!

Thanks Bynx. I went to the movies the other day, and watched Alice in Wonderland. Just wanted to do something different.

Thanks vvcarpio. This is what happens to your brain when you see Alice in Wonderland in 3D.

Looks like an HDR treatment. Nicely done. However, I don't particularly care for the angle/perspective.

Thank you for your comment Walter. Sorry you do not like the angle.

Here is another version. The viewpoint is a little different. This one is going to require more work then the first one.

Default This is an impressive pice of HDR, AR!

I like both versions. I like first of all the mood it conveys. I feel like watching a medival masterpice of Remrand or his likes. Golden, warm, with friendly and deep colors. A feast for the eye! So much to look at and such fine movements in the different parts of the picture.

It could almost be abstract art, but it's not when you look closely. Beautiful details in the bannisters, the studs and the underside of this staircase.

Incredible and something you can be proud of, AR!


One day I want to bee as good as you are now...

Hi,

I prefer the 2nd image as the framing allows for my eye to follow the continuation of the stairway around and up. With the 1st one, that section was cut off making it hard to discern just what I was looking at.

I also prefer the exposure of the 2nd image.

I very much like to see old architecture and there was enough visual interest in the stairway to make me want to try and figure out what I was actually looking at.

IMHO, A very good image and one worthy of display.

Zig
