Critique by HoekPhoto Jul 18, 2012, 2:04:00 AM
Just a fantastic image. The light play and contrast (or lack-thereof) give this such an eerie feel. The layers of lighting are wonderful, the slight spot at the bottom-left of the stairway catch my eye and begin my journey up. The subdued light in the first window set a tone and make me pause for a sec to take a peek, but don't stop my eye from climbing. The brightness of the middle light stop me at the top.

But that isn't the top and I have to break free from that strong highlight to travel up the rest of the stairway. I'm not really sure if that's necessary to tell the story. I'd take a shot at cropping just to the left of that third window. It competes with that highlight at the lower-left for my initial attention. At the very least the window on the far-right should be cropped out as it's a distraction and doesn't really add anything to the view. I'd also clip that little bit of window above the main highlighted window just to clean things up a bit more.

Last little nit-pick is that, cropping out that right-window but keeping the third one in the image, I'd use the crop tool to straighten that window. As it is now it's leaning off to the right. Using a wide-angle lens will create these little distortions so cleaning them up help make the image for natural-looking.

Hope this helps. Really fine work, I do like it a lot.
