I was fascinated by the work of the architect who conceived these stairs.

I'd like to know your opinion about my shot too.

 

Thanks,

As you say, beautiful staircase, and a very nice photo as well. Lighting is very even and DOF looks good. However, I think this type of pic really needs to be highly symmetrical, and horizontals need to be perfectly level. If those points were corrected the photo would be even better.

Thank you for your comments. I wish more viewers would do that.

I confess that I intentionally avoided a symmetrical picture with perfectly level horizontal lines. The architect took care of all these. I wanted to give the stairs a slight perspective without contradicting the architect's intentions.

 

You did not mention the running water stairs in the middle, made of white marble with delicate blue and light brown veins, which contrast very pleasantly with the old rose stairs.

Well, the uploaded picture is only 1200x900 pixels, the original picture is 2560x1920 pixels which on a high resolution monitor gives you very subtle nuances.

Perhaps I should have said "either perfectly symmetrical, or totally of-centre, but not just sligtly unsymmetrical". The waterfall is a wonderful feature within the staircase, but unfortunately my screen is not good enough to show the subtleties of the marble.

i second paul concerning symmetrical aspects, but light- and exposurewise it looks perfect to me, well done, anton!

Many of the aspects of this are appealing. The perspective, colors, exposure, and composition are all enticing. Im not sure if it really has a good themeand Im not sure if the image could be improved at the top by adding more of the structure...perhaps it could. Good shot! If it was me, I would be going back to see if I could make it better. The one image of mine that you commented on (Fall Colors) took several trips.

Thanks for your comments Matthew.

You can judge the scene from two additional shots I attached here. In the first one you can see what's beyond these stairs and in the second one a close up to the fountain stairs.

I'd be glad to hear your suggestions.
