This is the beautiful stair case at the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Arts. It is beautifully designed and makes a great photography subject. This is, I think, my best interpretation of it so far.

Thanks for all the kind comments and suggestion. I made some changed base on them and prepared it for print on DPCPRINTS. Thanks again.

Very, very nice. The bw works well and adds a touch of elegance, and the cropping is very effective.

Very well done!

So well suited for black & white!
This is nearly hypnotic and seems like there is a never-ending "something" somewhere to look at, which normally would hurt a shot, but in this layout, it works quite well.

One of the best architectural photos I've seen in a long time. Beautiful composition, lines, and full range of grey scale. 10.

Great perspective! Just think the "blacks" could have been "blacker" but it's a minor detail. 8

Wow. Love this staircase. Where is this. I'd love to see it in person.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 09:58:27 PM
Pretty f**king good. I only wish you'd been standing a smidge more to the right so the frame in the window at the top would have been symetrically revealed. Still, a very minor complaint. Excellent shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 09:25:58 PM
Excellent composition, well spotted. The patterns and shapes that the banister and lights make is mesmirising and your post processing has worked nicely here :o)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 06:17:13 PM
Nice architecture shot. Like the composition - and presenting it in B&W was the right choice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 06:12:35 PM
cool symetry. I wish I could find these!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
