Stairwell Abstract

Uploaded: February 28, 2007

Description

F7.1, 1/8, 72mm equivalent, ISO 100, aperture priority.
This is a staircase and rail at Universal Studios. I used the Xero plugin Bad Dream which provided softness and color adjustment. I found a small flaw in the first post, so I fixed it and reposted.

Carol, this is a really interesting handling. Wonderful lines and colors. You had excellent vision to see this and then to see what to do with it.

member since: 3/19/2006 Thank you so much Mitch! This stairwell has fascinated me since I first saw it at Universal. I love the colors of the wall and the faded look of the rail. I have taken many photos of the staircase and never been happy with the results. This time I decided to move in close. I really liked the diagonal of the rail leading upwards.

Aw right, Carol! Good for you! And I even get to see this staircase pretty soon. #4087788

Carol Teal March 23, 2007

Thank you Mitch and yes, you do! Don't be afraid to explore if you have the time; we actually went up this staircase and looked around. There were doors leading out to a balcony where you could watch everyone walking along. There is so much to see there! I guess Saturday we will be photo-taking before the concert because Justin fractured his arm Wed. so he can't get his splint wet (they will cast it on Monday) or ride the rides! #4088269

Toni Hopper March 24, 2007

good use of the filter. I hadn't tried that particular one yet. congrats! #4094119

Carol Teal March 25, 2007

Thank you so much Toni! I used it sparingly on this photo, but it did brighten the color of the wall. The filter is fun to try, although it can result in some strange photos (guess that is why it's called Bad Dream!) :) #4096274

Congratulations, Carol. This is beautiful. #4098777
