Shot this on a photo walkabout with my two faithful mentors (Nicholas & Brian). Found this gem of a place...

pp:
convert from RAW
Lightroom B&W adjustments
crop
straighten
curves
dodge & burn on stairs
contrast
resize
vignette
usm
border
sfw

Hopefully the title isn't too much of a stretch ;O)
I get the feeling the title of the shot may be more important than the actual image in this challenge.

This is a perfect composition, the lines lead the viewer around the image and back into each other again, very awesome. Congrats on the top 10

This is awesome dude...truly classic and very Escher to me. The ribboners were all great but this to me is greater. Pure class. Wish I'd shot it :)

My first thoughts on seeing work photo was Escher and then Hogwarts. I like the lighting, angle and use of black & white for this image. Nicely done. Good luck in the challenge.

really nice textures; I actually -feel- like i'm standing at the top of the staircase leaning.... great light pooling in, nice balance between dark and light

Artful with excellent tones.

Wonderfully different composition. Pity you couldn't have cloned out the 'thing' on the floor. A person walking through would have added a dynamic.

Excellent, classic Hitchcock Cinema feel. Maybe the border is a bit thick, but other-wise a great job!
