Tunnel; looking down a staircase

I hope this turns out not to be yet another "cool spiral staircase shot". I like the way it could mimic a tunnel. On the other hand, if it does turn out to be such a shot, I will not complain and keep practicing :) Comments/suggestions on composition and lighting would be appreciated.

The things that drew me to this image are:

1. The stairwell lead into a dark area, like going to an abbys 2. The steps in the upper left become so abstract being close 3. The repeating elements are placed so well.

You are correct that this type of photograph has been done a lot. You did a very nice job.

Going down... nicely

Federico... I like this image! It keeps the interest, great repetition, lines, depth. And I'm a sucker for spiral staircases! I like the placement of the pit in the lower right third.

Thanks for your encouraging comments! It is good to know that one can still make something out of an overused theme.

Aesthetics 7, Originality 7

I like it a lot. It would have been even better with a man, alone, walking up or down!
