It is Sculpture by the Sea time again in Sydney when artists show their work around the headland between Bondi and Tamarama beaches. As I looked at this sculpture by New Zealander David McCracken I heard lots of people saying "Stair way to heaven". That isn't its tile - the title is something much more arty "Diminish and Ascend".
It had a pretty spectacular position framing the point at North Bondi.

Well taken, good angle to give a diagonal on the blue sky, impressive monument, beautiful landsape with the view of the blue sea and the village.

I'm surprised you haven't gotten more critiques on this one. This stairway into the sky is very striking. I like this kind of art; it's a bit surreal and it compliments the natural surroundings. I like the placement of the stairs across the frame diagonally, and the view of the water and town below it. Do the stairs really taper off as they ascend, or is it just a visual trick? Nice presentation of this unique work of art.

'Stairway to Heaven', for me, is a much better title, for that is exactly what it appears to be achieving!
You have created a very nicely composed shot, the stairway emerging from the corner and following a diagonal to a very strong vanishing point. It conveys a dynamic movement!
This is a striking shot.
I just enjoyed gazing at it!
Have a lovely day,

This is brilliant, I have never seen a sculpture like this before, and the perspective in your shot really gives it meaning, it really does like it goes on forever. Its such a striking contrast to see this heavenly staircase presented in front of the urban area on the left, which even by itself is great, but with the sculpture is really beautiful and unique. Love this shot, very nicely done.
