Black Engineering Staircase
Location: Ames, IA
Time: 9:59 pm October 18
Composition: Standing on the platform of the ground floor. This location tells the viewer that the stairs go up and down. The stairs and light guide your eye around the photo. The person gives scale to staircase.
Critique: Since the shot was taken at night, the curved glass wall does not illuminate any of the interior. Since the window faces west, this shot would be a prime candidate for a sunrise shot.
Process: Increased the exposure by .5 and slightly increased the brightness to bring out the details in the stairs closest to myself.
Meta Data: 18mm f/3.5 SS: 1/8s ISO: 400
