Thank you, Sanjay. I was shooting up to get the stairway from the 2nd level to the top. The first level had signs posted on the windows and were distracting.

Stan, thank you so much for your comments. I have been looking for this type of shot for over a year. When I was in Rochester MN I tried this shot at a parking garage at the Mayo Clinic and the lighting didn't work as well. Also, the stairways weren't as prominent as this one. Our car was parked 1/2 block from this stairway and I noticed the bright yellow color as we walked to the car tonight. Of course, I had to stop and photograph it! #713686
