Stairs To The Tower

Michelle Alton level-classic 7/19/2011 2:21:43 AM

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. #1394214

Nancy L. Green level-classic 7/19/2011 10:15:22 AM

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!!! <>< #9540312

Laura E. Swan level-classic 7/19/2011 11:31:39 AM

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!
