Long Delays Possible

Upstairs

This one is taken in the British Museum in London.

I tried to emphasize the shadow and light patterns with local contrast and tonal adjustments. I applied some perspective and rotation correction to straighten the vertical and horizontal lines. I thought that black and white was better for this image. The shooting involved a bit of patience waiting for those museum stairs to be empty except for one person. I didn’t care at that moment if he/she was going up or down. Now, I think that strong person’s silhouette works well, and adds scale and interest to the image. Thanks that day was sunny!.
