Thanks folks for taking the time to vote and comment!

This is the same work stairwell that appeared in the Pattern V challenge, except instead of shooting down from the top, this one was shot from the bottom looking up. Once again, since the lights on each of the 8 levels are on a motion sensor and timed, I had to run from the top down (twice) to get the lights triggered. You can see the lights had already gone off on some of the levels but I thought it showed more depth.

Thanks again.

Great composition and detail in this pattern architecture shot of the stairwell. I like what the fisheye lens does for the composition because it curves the normally straight edge objects it makes the imagery flow smoother in a swirl/whirlpool direction down towards the bottom floor.

Just read your description on how you achieved the shot - running to activate the lights on the floors, now that is photographic lighting that provides not just light but a full workout:-)! Congrats on the Blue!

Hehe. There were quite a few people that saw me running the stairs. I took the shot before I started work and only had about 10 minutes to do it. A lot of the evening shift (I work in a big hospital) was arriving and walking through the stairwell. I got to my office drenched in sweat. :)

You need to hire stair runners. :-) Like the Escher-esqueness of this; fisheye is perfect!
