The Grand Hotel in city Sete is well known for its age and authenticity. It is more then 100 years old, and kept in the old style.

In this image you look up in the staircase. Up ... where the light is.

Hello Joop, a great shot looking up the stair well, especially as we can see the wrought iron balustrade.I like the angle that you have taken it from, presenting it on the diagonal.The colours, almost black and white but not quite, are perfect.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Looks like looking to infinity! I think I'd get dizzy going up and down this staircase. Good composition, I like the little tilt. Great lighting and dof with sharp details. Well done, tfs.

Olá joop
Good perspective ging a good grafism
Um abraço

Olá Joop,
Photo refined and great visual impact. The composition of an economy is bright, it only goes that must be present in the scene.
Extreme sharpness and great beauty.
