I agree with all that commented...the focus neededto be at the top or much more DOF.

Why I know this is not perfect it should have done better than this. I gave you a 7

If the focus would've been at the top of the stairs, this would've done very well.

This is a nice picture and a great concept, I just feel a sharper focus on the near railing (as opposed to the florr below) would have looked nice. But its still an excellent shot, good luck with it.

It took me a bit to figure out what this was. I think including more of the bottom of the stairwell would make this a better shot.

Okay, let me take a wild guess: you tried to pull the attention to the floor downstairs by focusing on it, and making it, by the unusual composition the off-centered object, right? Well... I must admit that the large blurry foreground makes it a little unconfortable for me to look at the image, but certainly not less interesting. It's a very original approach on the stairs-theme, and it gives me a 'special FX-feel'. Welldone!!

i love the composition, but would have preferred the focus be on the foreground rather than the floors below. either that or all in focus with a wider lens. the blur is a bit distracting. -Pedro

May have been a bit stronger had the foreground been a little sharper. But if you're falling through several flights of stairs, it's probably hard to concentrate on that :)

Its a good idea, but if it were more sharp it would look better, also maybe a wider angle lens would have improved the photo, 7
