I like the unusual POV, not shoving the end of the stairs, but focusing more on the wall, , also the moment of the sht, with the shadow continuing in a way the stairs. Also the almost just silhouette in the corner, gives somehow the feeling of loneliness, beeing lost.

immagine composta con grande mestiere ed eccellente colpo d'occhio.
Edificio, ombre e scale formano praticamente tre diagonali racchiuse in un perfetto equilibrio.
L'uomo sul margine destro è la classica ciliegina sulla torta.
Un grande abbraccio a te, Cinzia e Federico.
P.S. Mi dispiace molto non esserci incontrati a Roma, ma purtroppo la mia situazione non lo consentiva.

excellently noticed and composed picture.Simple idea,but really eye-catching.You choose good POV and close-up to immortalize this scene.I like especially this captivating play of ligh&shadow,which creates here nice armosphere.
Have a nice day

Hello Giorgio - The contrast between the shadows and sunlit wall is very good but perhaps the figure gets lost a little in the deep shade. I like the composition, it is off-beat but successful. The detail in the wall is well captured and I like the stairs which seem to disappear into the darkness. Warm regards rosemary

a nice graphical cityscape picture, well composed, dynamic (the man climbing the stairs), well framed and contrasted, between light and shadow.

Nice minimalist shot, good play of shadows and calid colors. The human presence is a plus here.

Perfect POV indeed, I couldn't think to take this stairs from this angle, love your almost symmetric composition.. I wish, that man were walking near the wall, just to be seen more evidently, thanks for sharing..

One side in the shade with the man climbing up the stairs and the other one in full light with beautiful ochre colors and much luminosity
Very well done, very elegant, bravo

ottimo taglio e contrasto cromatico. la sagoma nera della persona rompe le geometrie delle scale

another cool looking photo!
I really enjoy how you composed this one, so smart, so effective.
the single man really makes an impact aswell, even if he is in the shadows.
lovely combinations of light, shadow and architecture.
