Spiral staircase at one of the many monastaries near Vienna. We were filled with so much information I do not recall where I was when I took this. There was a mirror at the bottom of the staircase so that when you look down from anywhere on the steps it would give the illusion of infinity. I was near the bottom as I took this shot and of course I couldn't stand on the mirror so I simply stuck my hand out and pointed up, knowing I would be cropping it later.

Very nice POV. Great light and lots of details. This picture is quite nice, well frame, almost unreal.

What a beautiful picture! The colors are great and the composition is perfect. I like the snail shape of the stairway.
The light management is very good.

Despite the beautiful European architecture, the picture itself is a piece of art.

Gregory, great capture under less than ideal circumstances - an almost dizzying POV.

Lovely colors and your eye travels up and gets lost in the swirl of the staircase.
