    Normally I try to straighten things out a bit, but in this image the verticals seem to lend something (drama?)...who would have thought an office fire escape could be exciting?

    Yes, a great staircase indeed.

    It's a very nice record shot showing how the staircase looks. I think a more interesting photo would be a closer shot filling the frame with part of it, or possibly looking up at it from very close.

    Yes, I agree. However, the big locked gate and forbidding "private property" signs, plus the security guards having a crafty smoke were a bit off putting. Next time I'm in town I might take my folding steps to get a better angle.

    Yes, a different time of the day would be a good move, I feel. The afternoon would bring the sun right round to the right...early evening might be even better the whole stairwell would be lit up as the sun set.

    very nice
    I agree that the converging verticals add drama and meaning.
