That is amazingly beautiful. I have no idea why, but (in my opinion) abandoned places make beautiful photographs ^.^

I left Facebook well over a year ago.

 

In my personal pic files, I set up a folder I call "After man". Abandoned derelict ruins and empty horror of man's works given over to the elements. Many are of Cherobyl, but some I am not sure of, there being no descriptions. One may be a fantasy painting of a post-apocalypse world...

We should treasure the wrought iron and those arches as that form of art is dying.Beautiful

I have just favorited a LOT of your photographs. I normally turn my nose at such artwork because they can be taken in an instant and it doesn't require as much effort as a painting or an inked picture. ( I am heavily biased). But you had to actually trek out and find these places to get your shot, and to get it perfect with the right mood, light, color AND composition. I am very impressed, and since you've asked for critique on this picture I will give you some.
First off, the architecture is like nothing I'm used to, something between the victorian era and the 1920s. The staircase reminds me of the staircases in New Orleans, the ones in the old houses. It's interesting but mundane at the same time because it's abandoned. The faded color of the walls suggest the the plaster or paint or whatever used to be a cream color, something warm and happy, the gold light from the outside reflects that creme feeling. I really like the contrast of the blue and the mystery of it because the viewer can see that it comes from outside but they don't know from what. There are a lot of interesting textures of the walls and the tiled floor that add different layers to the photograph. The openness of the picture is hard to explain, there are no doors and it looks easy to get outside, but there are a lot of walls and makes the building seem like a maze. Finally the position of the camera is the best part, the viewer can hardly see the stuff they want to look at, like where the blue light is coming from, or the picture on the second floor, or that thing that looks like a fire place blocked behind the railing. Is it really a fireplace? or is it another door? the viewer has to think about it! they have to imagine it in their minds. Very cool. Light, a bit whimsical, and just haunting enough to be considered magical.
I really like your photographs and I'd love to buy this particular print as soon as I have the cash to spend on it. I didn't just critique because I really like this picture, it has also inspired me and given shape to a place in my head that I didn't have a real clear idea of before. I don't normally gush on artists I don't know, only the one's who's work makes me want to work even harder at my own stuff. Keep doing what you do, because it's working for you. :)

There is just something about staircases that just demand to be photographed. This is an amazing pic!
