I like what you have done here with the light play and using black and white format. I find it a very appealing photo.

For critique to do even better, here are my suggestions: If you are choosing symmetry when photographing architecture, it needs to be precise. I don't think you were quite lined up perpendicular to the center of the arch. Get as close as you can, and use photoediting to do the rest. Your 'horizon' is not quite straight, and also, I would suggest the cropping be the same on the pillars on both sides of the arch. If you can't do that, then include neither. This is a very demanding type of photo, and occasionally you see them done really well on this site, but more often, the symmetry is not quite on.

For another look, you could choose to move definitavely to the right of your position. The small doorway is not a key feature here, and it would be minimized by an alternate position. Try lining yourself up perpendicular to the center of the stairwell, or off to the far right wall, maybe getting a bit of the next bannister upwards?

I'm going to have a go at a workshop, hopefully I can post it today, if I'm not over my limit.

Cheers, Maura

Default To ravish: the Pinkish look

I think the pinkish look it has is because of the camera roll I was using ... it was this kind of really cool roll I had bought in India ... it is processed the same as the color roll but it gives black and white photos ...ha ha .. neat eh ?
