Found this little gem on the UW campus while there on a walkabout shoot with my faithful DPC gang. I have so many awesome shots from that outing - was VERY pleased :O)

We didn't want to carry our tripods around (infact, I'm the only one that walked around with my whole kit) - so this was shot handheld using f/4 at ISO800 - it was really low light in there :O( Definitely need to go back.

Normally, I'm scrambling to find a Free Study entry... and typically get one in at the last minute. This is so early - I don't know what to do for the rest of the month! Shot this on May 7th - entered it on the 8th.

24 days until rollover... AAAAaaahhhhh!!!!

convert from raw (only used one image, even though I shot for HDR).
used some key actions from draganizer to add some highlights & grunge to the brick.

Hope it does well - i LOVE this shot, and I'd like to see it hang around on my front page for a while! :O)

Post Challenge:

Well, while this definitely didn't make my front page, I'm really happy with the finish - especially with so many stellar images in this FS! :O)

Note: this is the same stairwell that landed me a 6th Place finish in the ABC...LMN...XYZ challenge (photo's were taken a couple of minutes apart).
