Great capture, the lighting is excellent!

Thanks Kurt. Is that a Halong Bay photo I see in your top 10 photos? I’m a little jealous because when I went the entire bay looked like a black and white movie due to the rain and cloudiness :)
Beautiful. I love the lighting as well. I love the contrast
Thanks Zeekid! I love this photo too – one of my favourites from the 17,200 I took this year. It was practically impossible to take a “bad” photo of these stairs. I guess the golden ratio really does work.
Have you tried processing it in black & white? While there may not be much midtones it might be a really interesting image with this strong composition and the lines of light and dark
Hi Zeekid, no I haven’t tried black and white, I usually try to have my travel photos look as close to real life as possible for people who are considering visiting in-person. Good suggestion though, might give the black and white a try later :)
I told you, you ARE a photographer. And a good one at that. Beautiful image!

Wow, thanks Melanie, glad you like the photo. My eyes lit up as soon as I saw this staircase at the exit of the Vatican Museum. I could have stayed at this staircase for hours just taking photos (or maybe next time I should do a time lapse :O)
Great photo! I’d love to visit one day.
Thanks Maria. Rome and the Vatican are definitely worth visiting. It’s beautiful, easy to photograph and there is an abundant amount of gelato and pizza too.
