Thank you all very much for the kind words! (Wow, Michelle, you're good for the ego!)
I was very surprised this turned out; the viewing angles are limited (the public is allowed to enter and stand on 1 landing, with large solid wood walls preventing you from going up or down from that landing. You can basically lean over the landing's railing), the lighting is challenging (bright, hot-spot wall-mounted sconces) and I shot fairly underexposed to minimize camera shake. (You'd laugh at the original RAW image of this!!) I'm thrilled with how this turned out, given all of that, and glad you all like it as much as I do!

Thanks, Nikki! Glad you searched it out! My regular BP gallery is overdue for some pruning I think; I try to keep my chrisbudny.com a little less packed-full, and grouped by subject, loosely. It isn't a perfect system, clearly ;)

Thank you all very much!
I believe I shot this with Renee & Linda, on the same day I shot my Lincoln Memorial Finalist, and my Pension Building Finalist, and the day before my Passage Finalist---making that weekend certainly one of the most successful on record, for me personally!
I recommend shooting with Renee & Linda all the time, now. ;)

This is my favorite - it is truly spectacular and so very elegantly presented.

The title says it exactly right.
An elegant beauty. I am always on the lookout for stairs.
Congratualations on your gold.

Thanks, Christine--I've been on the watch for stairs too, ever since getting the ultra-wide EFS 10-22 lens (inspired directly by Katarina's magnificent stair captures across Europe.)

Thank you, Dave! How can you not love a great spiral? ;) They're so appealing as subjects. Glad you like 'em both!

This photo is so captivating, so skillfully taken. Resubmit this one. Second place is not nearly good enough for this.

Thank you very much Dayna; it is definitely a favorite of mine! I may work up a revision to enter, in light of your re-entry suggestion.
