Daily Deviation

Given 2014-06-30
the-black-swan captures a wonderful urbex piece that has a subtle HDR effect. The brilliant angle of Villa Grammaire produces a fascinating, unique perspective of a building with an intriguing interior design. ( Featured by 3wyl )

As a painter and illustrator, I often am not able to understand photography as an art form. I like pictures of my kids, and sunsets ... but that's usually about it. So keep that in mind when you read this critique.

This image struck my eye, and the first thing I wondered was whether it was actually a photograph or not. I enjoyed this sensation, and it made me want to look closer.

It is photographed in such a way as to appear like an abstract painting or 3D art, because it does not initially correspond to any recognizable interior. Before I looked closely, I thought it might be the airlock of some kind of spaceship.

When I realized what was happening, and that the camera was aiming up, I appreciated the cleverness of the photographer, and it expanded my understanding of photography as an art form, so mission accomplished!

The only thing I think that might improve it would be to increase the contrast a bit ... but again, I am not an expert.
What do you think?

Beautiful, very unique. Usually you see stairwells from the top down, but this showcases them wonderfully from another perspective :)

About the only place I have encountered a staircase like that was Allentown State Hospital. The disorienting effect was disrupted by a metal cage to prevent people from falling or jumping.

It's amazing how humans, over centuries, have been able to create structures straight up in perfect lines without having tape measures and stuff. We have understood geometry and math for so long.

That's pretty cool.

Side note, when I saw the thumbnail of this, I thought it was like a sci-fi space ship corridor because of the angles and such.
