I'm new to this forum and already went to browsing the forums, until I saw this one. I like the picture, it gives a special feeling.
The beautiful-lighted stair and the old-looking "exit", I recognize that from somewhere... maybe a movie? It almost gives the feeling of doing a difficult job and reaching the end, filling yourself with pleasure.
nice! the softness works for me.. but what really does work for me is the little star at the bottom of the staircase, it completes the pic.. also this kind of shot leaves a lot to the imagination! well done thanks for sharing
