In madrid I stayed in the hostel in Calle de la Cruz. The location was fantastic, just a few minutes from Puerta del Sol, so I could go everywhere on foot or by train or metro to more distant places. it was very convenient. I shared a room with some other lone travellers from all over the world - the girls were from Japan, China, Korea, Argentine - it was great fun with them. But Madrid do not sleep, and I could not sleep either. Just under the window was a cafe open a long time, the people celebrated there till 3 or 4 a.m. And this hostel had interesting stairs. I do not remember other triangular stairs like these.

Unusual shape of the stairs with a good mix of warm hues. Hope you can recover from your tiring stay in this place!

triangoli ce ne sono molti.
Ottimo taglio per metterli in evidenza.
Molto bello il gioco tra i triangoli e le linee degli scalini.

The graphics of the straight lines in the triangular staircase make this a visually interesting picture. I like the way you managed the light giving each floor some different warm tones. A really spectacular and eye catching effect. The image is sharp and well framed and shows off a nice depth of field.
Well seen and well captured.

The framing is great, the picture is spectacular, the staircase is made to wonder. I appreciate the excellent quality of the exposure and contrast, sharpness and depth. Bravo.
Have a nice day

fascinating symmetry and a real sense that you are tumbling over the edge. Love the lines and light here that are compelling and so effective. Executed and presented perfectly.
Enjoy your weekend - Brian.

J'aime beaucoup les formes géométriques qui se rencontrent dans un ballet de contrastes . La lumière est spectaculaire et l'ensemble du plus beau graphisme.

Very visual effect these stairs are Malgorzata, and your choice to take the shot at this angle was perfect. Wonderful clarity showing the marble staircase and wooden rails. Excellent color and light control combined with your POV has made this a pleasurable photo to view.

J'aime le graphisme particulier de cet escalier en triangle. Les couleurs chaudes me plaisent aussi beaucoup.
jjcordier (75086) 2012-05-26 23:50
Superbe cadrage plongeant de cet escalier original et très beau travail de posttraitement donnant des couleurs particulières et intéressantes. Excellente photo.
ChrisJ (95734) 2012-05-27 2:27
A nice unusual variation on the usual circular spiral staircase shots. Superb sharpness & downward pov with excellent graphism & repetition of patterns & shapes. Good warm colours and a soft diffused light yet still with superb lighting contrasts. Tfs!

Trojkatnej klatki schodowej nie widzialem ;(
Interesujaca geometria w kadrze.
macjake (54830) 2012-05-27 11:31
wow, you certainly do know how to travel! :)
I havn't stayed in a hostel in a long time!
Good for you though, it does make you more social and you meet interesting people that way.
as for the stairs, its a wonderful subject. Its even better because its like finding a rainbow - its very unexpected to find a gem like this one.
Wish I was there to photograph it too.
have a peaceful Sunday
dkmurphys (48078) 2012-05-27 13:36
A true work of art here. You've captured a beautiful graphical scene. Well done, have a calm night.
notrap (5797) 2012-05-28 3:22
very pretty staircase, and well executed photo, isn´t it worth some sleepless nights?
yquem46 (38510) 2012-05-28 12:37
Catching up with what I've missed in a 3 days-long WE
A quite original view of staircases, using triangles rather the usual helicoidal pattern
Excellent warm colors and light
worldcitizen (6717) 2012-05-28 13:07
Really eye-catching composition, and very well-presented. I love the geometric patterns and shapes. It is a simple subject, but one that I could look at for a while. Great job with the lighting and depth, too.
abmdsudi (41936) 2012-05-28 22:41
Impressive stairway with great control of highlights, shadows and colors. A craking shot! an interesting design good for abstract image. Lovely repeated triangles and its dynamism with good sense of scale and excelllent viewpoint by placing the lower traingle base off center at the bottom whilst the natural lighting and soft shadows intensify the depth and contrast is splendid. This gives a fresh innovative shot. Nicely done and great effort.
bayno (18342) 2012-05-29 8:08
how nice the visual effect of your shot, great job in PP, these are the shots that only a good photographer can see and realize...nice one...
ManuMay (34411) 2012-05-29 10:43
Hi dear Malgo!
Amazing, striking and wonderful!!
The old fashion could smell here!!
Great composition and point of view, great graphics indeed!!
batalay (35129) 2012-05-29 16:52
You know how much I like geometric shapes and spiral staircases. And this is a good combination. Your recommendation for the hostel Calle de la Cruz. Just six weeks ago you were there. Who did you see among Trekearth members?
Warm regards, Malgo,

Hello Malgo - I am back from my self-imposed exile and very glad to see that the Pinterest issue has been resolved! I am so pleased not to have the opportunity to comment on this fine shot. The first time I saw it I was very impressed with the composition and quite fascinated by the triangular nature of the staircase too. I don't think I have seen such a shot before. Pity about the noise but worth it perhaps in order to see the triangle stairs! Warm regards Rosemary
adores (35614) 2012-06-02 7:15
The shape really makes it different and unusual. I like the light and the graphism a lot! Great to know you had a great time there:)!
AiresSantos (56155) 2012-06-04 2:42
Bom dia Malgorzata
Wonderful graphism provided by the stairs
Excellent colors and contrast
Very well seen and done
Have a nice week
brianmcc (6095) 2012-06-05 2:28
you have stopped this scene and composed the picture perfectly. the repeating patterns and lines are mesmorising and seem to have some sort of hypnotic effect on the viewer. the colour tones are lovely and rich. an excellent image.
