Stairs of Art by =Nightline is a wonderful example of staircase photography. The curve of the ironwork wraps the image together nicely and pulls the viewer into the picture. ( Featured by AnaNaszynska )

This is pretty, yes, but I get this feeling that it is just a picture of stairs. It tells no story that I can see, and it doesn't inspire me in any way, shape or form.

However, I do have a rule for myself- for every negative comment, two positives.

So, the architecture is gorgeous. I love how the flowers in the railings seem to be part of the building. I love how the stairs are square, and yet somehow round. The tiles glisten in the light, and the colors are very bright. And most of all, I love how the outside, closer to the camera seems bright and chipper in sharp contrast to the more serious setting underneath the surface.

Thank you for your comment!

I, for myself, was quite happy to get a view which plays with your mind. I also like the combination of different textures which almost create a surreal effect.

I see what you mean. :)
To me, Architecture Photography doesn't necessarily have to tell a story per se; sometimes a play of light of shadows, a combination of forms and colors, a detail on a pattern.. can create a visual image, nearly abstract, that makes me see the object in a new way.
In this case, this staircase looks almost like an eye. I love the combination of colors and it's rare that I look at a staircase from this angle too. That's the reason why I thought it deserved a feature. :)

But it's a personal opinion, art is subjective. That's what's wonderful about it! :D

I know. I love that everyone has different views of art and what it is. I guess I like it so much because it has no boundaries, and that there are no rules to go by, and people having different opinions on it keeps me wondering... And this /is/ a very nice picture.

Beautiful use of the spiral format. Excellent use of color and movement. I like how the tile is reminiscent of a window making it more surreal. Escher meets Art Nouveaux
