Challenge: From Above (Classic Editing)
Camera: Fujifilm FinePix S602Z
Location: Commonwealth Bank, Sydney, Australia
Date: Mar 13, 2003
Aperture: 2.8
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/18 s
Galleries: Abstract, Architecture
Date Uploaded: Mar 13, 2003

This was taken from the 13th floor looking down between the spiraling staircase. As you can see its a rather small space it circles around and it takes your breath away. The space that my friend had crawlen into to have this taken was very small. As she was so far away we had a system where I had three poses I wanted her to do so when I wanted her to change I would use the flash!

Congratulations - didn't have you as my first, but very close - and re-inforces my belief that I was right to buy the 602! Keep up the good work.

Very interesting shot -- great work! Is that a person lying on the floor at the bottom? I'll be curious to read your comments after the contest is over. I'm betting this will be a contender this week!

I really loved this photo. It has a real gothic feel to it, like something straight from a NIN video. Great colours, Great idea, Great use of lighting. Originally gave this an 8 earlier in the week but have now decided for a 9. Excellent job!

I was really surprised there weren't more of thhis kind of shot. This is good though: suitably grainy, grim. Good shot.

03/22/2003 01:26:15 AM

A beautiful picture.

Cool effect. Is that person laying down on the floor I think?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/20/2003 07:59:16 AM

Now, this is from above. Good focus throughout.

03/19/2003 12:25:40 AM
Very creative. I'd like to see less GREEN in it however. Great idea however.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/18/2003 10:56:11 PM

Awesome shot, my favorite for this challenge. Good work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/18/2003 08:05:12 AM
I really like this. Surreal effect, great idea to put someone at the bottom, really makes it look like a corridor. Where did you find a building with such a long flight of stairs? Great pic though 9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/18/2003 03:11:56 AM
One of my favorites this challenge. Is that a person lying on the ground? Its very optical illusionish and the tone of it is great. Great job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/18/2003 12:02:39 AM
I wanted to get a photo like this myself but couldn't find an open stairwell. Good job but what is that person at the bottom? Did you super-reimpose them or were they laying down at the bottom?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2003 11:17:11 PM
Good choice of B & W.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2003 10:55:02 AM
like it, even though kind of cliche... would have preferred no person in the photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2003 10:01:19 AM
Great idea.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2003 03:47:02 AM
This stairwell makes a great photographic subject. It's hard to clearly see the person who appears to be lying on the floor at the bottom?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2003 02:16:56 AM
Nice "artsy" concept. I like the colors (if you can call it that). The darkness and dinginess of the top (outside) of the photo seem to push ones eyes to the center and bottom. There is a human form down there isn't there? Good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2003 01:13:47 AM
love the lighting and tone in this shot. kinda reminds me of the movie pie (the symbol)
