This is very very lovely. I love the angle shot you took and the lighting is excellent. You could just imagen people walking through the hallways of the balcony and up and down the stairways. It brings you back in time to the Romantic/Renaissance Era (sorry if the era of this building construction is incorrect). You capture the depth of the levels between floors and everything is perfectly in place. I love how clear the picture is and the pure richness of it. The rusty, bronze shading with the nature lighting gives the area great history. Amazing work capturing this.

The concept of the piece is eerie and you have achieved that extremely well. The musky colouring has been captured to enhance the idea of loneliness and can help see the past of this once wonderous place.
Shape is also very good here; the recurring spiral and circular shapes (like along the staircase and the windows) contradict how beautiful this place was in its entirety, and by chosing this angle you have definitely shown this feature, and it creates a very bold impact of the photograph. I must say, along with this, the lighting is very effective, and by including this you have achieved a great sense of volume.

Overall, I love the story that this phot tells, and you have helped recreate a new world through this piece :)


Well done! :heart: Wonderful work

How can a beautiful place like this end up abandoned? I'm fascinated by your work. :thumbsup:

I bet it's entirely a beautiful building, it's a bit sad it's abandoned though.
You took a great shot of it. Amazing!

great shot! ... please don't take the following tongue-in-cheek comment as negative, i just couldn't resist ... i think it's the way the staircases flow that brought about the association.

it's hogwarts in the distant future ... or possibly the stern-end grand staircase on the titanic (the round openings are reminiscent of certain windows on certain cruise ships) ... maybe it's the bastard offspring of the two?

i LOVE what this photo has done for my imagination. thanks for sharing. it is truly magnificent and thought-provoking!

This almost looks like something out of a video game or a set design! Although it's probably just me wanting that than to see this beautiful building fallen into such disuse. Great capture!
