Challenge: Architecture In Blue (Basic Editing)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Canon EOS-50D
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm IS USM
Location: Verona, WI
Date: Aug 10, 2012
Aperture: 9
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/30
Date Uploaded: Aug 11, 2012

This is a spiral staircase at work that is pure white. The design of the staircase is actually taken from Fibonacci's spiral, as indicated by a sign at the bottom. Looking up it's a pretty cool sight, especially with the various details available. it's too bad it's basic editing, as I would really like to take out the lights at the top that are a bit distracting.

--------

Wow, wow, WOW! Thank you all so much for the votes, comments, and favorites. I could tell after taking this shot it was nice, but I never expected mid 7s. Such an amazing week where I never once dipped below a 7, although it got close a few days ago.

Thank you again!

Fully agree: remove the lights, and make the shape more perfect... and less interesting!

I was right it wasn't blue!

Still the voters liked it, and it was a great pic.

for the design elements alone, this is super.

This is certainly different. Not sure how effective the image is though - it just doesn't seem to have any context.

Lovely picture, great composition and beautiful colours. Almost surrealistic. And is it the sky I'm looking at in the middle?

somehow I feel this is not blue,and that all you've done is shift the colour palette, not often you see a blue stair case, I could be wrong though, but somehow I don't think so.
