Detail of the famous spiral staircase you have to decend when leaving the Vatican Museum.
Coats of arms of several popes are depicted on the banisters.

Well framed image of the spiral staircase, choosing the magic number three for the number of floors. You have captured the carved detail very well.

Hi Janneman, while I like both your spiral staircase photos, i think i prefer this one. The definition is sharper, and the soft glow of the lights add greatly to the atmosphere. Well done on recognizing the photographic potential in this scene. Regards,

well this is an intriguing and fascinationg perspective. The sculptures on the banisters contrast vigorously with the minimalism of the wlls and lights.

I've seen many times the photo of this ladder, but from the highest part. The diagonals create an interesting pattern.
