Hi Helen;
The tones in this image are warm and invite my eye to move into and towards the light entering at the top of the stairway.
Just beautiful.

Thankyou to all :) Robert, this was taken as I was walking through some ruins in a place called Sigiryia,Sri Lanka. I liked how the steps were leading through this rock structures. I post edited subtley in CS5 as the original was quite flat, mainly to bring the golden colours as I saw them on the day. cheers, Helen :) #9711391

Love the way the stairs lead you back, but when you get there, you feel a sense of urgency like the roof is going to fall down on you! #9713377
