Beautiful composition and colors.

Unique, maybe better in black and white?

I had no idea this was actually a staircase looking at the thumbnail. Thought it was a roll of paper. Great composition and very artistically done. ((7))

Beautifully thought out, beautifully composed, beautifully shot. This would make a great print and/or poster.

Argh! The gamma is off on the monitor I'm using right now. Nice strong composition here with the curving lines. The bad thing is the monitor is too dark, so the stairs are melding together as we follow them down. The lines themselves aren't quite smooth, which makes my eyes hop around the page a bit much. 8

ok after five minutes i'm still stumped. I have no clue what I'm looking at. I would gues it is a hand formed concrete structure to to the imperfect curves. This is truely a dizzyingly wonderfull photo. The lights and shadows are very pleasing to the eye. Keep up the grat work.

i love your image, and mean no offense in suggesting that i would like it more if it was rotated 45 degrees ccw.

Not enough contrast/detail but otherwise great shot.

Arresting image & a nice crisp shot. Tempted to give it a 6, of course. Or it could be a 9. But ...7.

I'm a sucker for a really good abstract and this is one. I love the colors and the composition. What especially appeals to meis the pattern of the black stairs inside the spiral. This is a 10 in my book.

I'd love some more shadow detail here for the darker steps. The composition doesn't 100% convince me... I'd have cropped the photo leaving the centre of the spiral at one of the thirds junctions. This is an exceptionally great looking staircase though.

What a find...One of my favourites in the challenge

Wow, really neat shot. It looks like the inside of a conch shell. ...6...

Nice lighting. i like the composition. this seems like the inside of a shell, but as the title says it's not a shell but a ladder.
Good photo overall.

Good composition and a fantastic title. I somehow dislike the hue, seems like a white balance problem between daylight and electric light. Perhaps this would be better in b/w or sepia? -7

I love that only a small part of the stairs has light. Works very well.
