    Wonderful image, Kiki. I actually thought you had been a mere 9 miles from here at the Bowman's Hill Tower. It's interior looks identical to this.

Youve done a great job with the light, shadow, and curves.

I love this Kiki, you did an amazing job with both the lighting and the comp, I have tried to get staircases like this and have never gotten on nearly as good as this, WTG!!! <><

Yep. Agreed. Great lighting and lines, I love your COMP and POV here. It's really terrific and artistic. You must have REALLY pressed yourself against that wall to get all of this in? (Unless you used a wide angled lens or setting? I just found that setting on my camera a few days ago!!! Didn't know there WAS one...)

This is terrific and as Jack said, the feel of age here makes this enchanting!

Great textures, too!!! BRAVO!

The composition is top notch Kiki. It definitely has an aged feel about it with all that glorious texture. The lighting coming through the window really enhances the image. Just stunning!
