I remember the steps but I don't remember the statue in "Rocky." This has a very dramatic contrast between the lively party in the foreground and the statue at the top. Such an impressive image Michelle! #10530012

This is a resubmit with some adjustments to highlights and shadows and some "cleanup" that wasn't in the old version.
This is the Great Stair Hall in the Philadelphia Museum of Art (on whose steps the famous training scene in the film, "ROCKY," was filmed). In this case it was the scene of a fancy reception following an event I cannot remember.
