Challenge: Wooden (Advanced Editing IV)
Camera: Canon PowerShot A80
Location: Peoria, IL
Date: Jul 21, 2005
Aperture: 4
ISO: 50
Shutter: 1/250

Side stairs at a local safe house. Walked past these when out shooting for the construction challenge. It's actually an old historic building in town with some interesting architecture, but there is quite a bit of distracting clutter around it.

Brightness/Contrast, Saturation adjustments, dodge/burn, resize, slight USM.

Fantastic shot - Love the processing and presentation. You're right - I don't want to climb them! ;-)

really like the blacks/browns/blues here (minor point but I'd like the sides even/level) the title draws a conclusion for the viewer but there is more mystery in the photo - potentially ;)

One of my ribbon picks

This is great in many ways- subject, composition and treatment. I'm curious to know how this effect was achieved!

Interesting, reminds me somehow of a scene in "Batman Begins" when Batman and Gordon are chatting in Gordons "back yard". Love the darkness and tones in this shot, good job.

Very cool... I love the darkness in this. Also, makes a very interesting picture with the bits of color in the windows and doorways. 10

Like the subject but it´s to dark.

If this is after a fire, difficult to lighten black....7

the colors seem very un-natural and dark and even a little "splotchy"/uneven. i think it works though, it's very artsy. 9.

This is a nice photo. It seems a bit dark or too contrasty though.

I like it has a dark, aged effect. Good composition and use of lighting!

In this challenge, "Creativity is the Key" is what I am using to score images. Not too thrilled about the title but I love the image. The tilt on the right is a little distracting but it is due to a ground level POV - we take what we can. I really like the tones - many might complain it is too dark but I think that is what works for me. The reflections in the glass add movement to what otherwise might be static. Crop is a little tight for my tastes but overall, well done and creative! 7 - good luck in the challenge!

Great leading lines. I love the zig zag of the stairs. The hint of blue and red here and there is effectibe. I like all the dark of it too. Nicely done.

Very nice picture. You might want to adjust the verticle lines so that they are straight up and down. It's also a tad dark.

This seems like it would be an interesting composition but it is way too dark.

Looks like a Joey Lawrence

You have really captured a mood in this photo, like the people who live there are fighting against overwhelming odds
