Bill Brown from California, United States

I like what you have done with the angle. I get the impression I'm looking up at an almost endless shaft. B&w was a good choice.

13 Jan 2011 6:35am

@Bill Brown: Thank you : )

D. K. Sutton from Philadelphia, PA, United States

Really great idea to tilt the view. It really gives the effect of twisting through the space, maybe even falling down a shaft. Nice capture!

@D. K. Sutton: Thank you : )

JCJ from Troyes, France

reminds me the hotel where i was in NY, the potential graphic was quite the same, but the two shots i did where not that good. here, you find a powerful graphic by tilting the camera, excellent, and the B&W makes it stronger :)
