Oriel Staircase
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Oriel Staircase
Oriel Staircase
Architect John Root designed an iron staircase that winds down from floor 12 to 2 in the historic Rookery Building. Photographing the staircase is difficult as the building limits access to the staircase and tripods are not allowed at all.

You sure managed to overcome the limitations and captured a fantastic picture. What strikes me as a special POV is the linear lines across the bottom to contrast the curves of the rest of the staircase. Outstanding work, Leslie.
