    Great shot and an extremely clever edit. The selective color on the books and the apt title work perfectly together here, Katta, and the black and white tonal range is excellent.

Fantastic! Great pop on the stairs and railings; I wish I could find as many varied spiral stairs here as you find there!!

Very nice, Katta. I sure like how the spiral stairs encase the colorful books at ground level. Great find and capture!

Excellent use of sc here, Katta. It takes our attention right down the railing.
