Greetings from Andi via the Critique Club. Let me start by congratulating you on your first ribbon Vlado

First Impression: Fits the challenge well, a nicely framed colourful shot but, its another spiral staircase.

Composition: This is excellent, the frame is full with no wasted space and my eyes are taken on a rollercoaster ride around the image.

Tecnical: Its a basic challenge and think you did an excellent job with the lighting, exposure and focus. some voters might have wanted more detail at the bottom of the stairs but I like the mystery of whats down there.

Artistic: If you had left out the foliage I think you would have suffered in the voting and having it in the shot has added another dimension to the image. For me, the foliage is the difference between a good image and the work of an artist (and of course a runner up and a ribbon winner).

Overall thoughts: If I were able to get you to change one element it would be to have used a flash to bring out the foliage a bit more, I think it would have helped the image but unless I saw a comparison I can only wonder. Its a shot well worth your first ribbon, and hope its the start of good things for you here at dpc.

I think you missed a bit on your prediction. :-) Congrats on the ribbon!! I had an outtake that was kinda similar but not nearly as pretty:

I knew there had to be at least one spiral staircase in here, they just look so cool from above. Very nicely captured and the color is complemented nicely by the green of the potted plant.

I think the first plant ruins it for me, maybe others will like it, 6
