Looks like the place from which each human begins their life (:
I love stairs, and this one is cooler than any other, since it's not the usual spiral.

I wish we had some eye-catching architecture where I live. But alas, I'm in Nova Scotia... So breathtaking architecture won't be around anytime soon. Great shot

I am a perfectionnist... so it's a bit pitty that the low part of the fram cut the white part.

Except this very very small detail, your pic is awesome!

I love it, very unique perspective!! The only beef I have with it (unless perhaps it was intentional, in which case you can punch me) is the little light showing in the top right. My gosh though, everything else is suberb. I think that's a fitting word...SUPERB.

HOLY SHAIT!!! That's an incredible angle, it looks like you're photographing the inside of this archirectural creature... if that makes any sense...

WOW! those shapes, and the way the light comes through, it's truly sublime!

"welcome to deviantart.

i would appreciate if you told me _why_ you don't like "humanity in stairs" so that i could improve."

so that you could improve? i'm sure you know what you're doing, I just was telling you what I felt about it. I think it's stupid.

nice nice.

i'm not sure if you've read lovecraft, but he is always talking about angles, and the course they have over the humanity. in some way, that makes this image particulary interest to me, due to the oddness of the involved lines.

An interesting staircase with a wonderful piece of symmetry, resemblence to an eye is quite cool and with the shot being of one looking up it could be said that the staircase and the roof is staring right back at ya!

Nice

the only thing that i would like to wish away in the photo would be that pesky light everyone else wants to vanish...
...however, beyond that...i love the symmetry of this shot...not perfect yet just flawed enough to give it character

I'd like to see the original.. otherwise.. fake.. 3d work. Was it color corrected, manipulated, changed, moved, changed, warped?
If it is a true photograph however, i'd definately dig the piece. Makes me wonder.. dayumm... I think i think i need to get a me a new camera!!
