Just a random shot of a stairway at a park. It's old and a bit decrepit, so I processed it to make the clouds/sky suit it better. It came out more or less as I imagined it could when I took it.

PP - converted from RAW, cropped, B&W, cloned out a couple of bright spots in the grass, "lomo" filter in FilterForge, reduced saturation on blues, blended in multiply mode, resized, USM.

It works great for me. Love the tones and the border. Looks kind of dramatic. "Your stairway lies on the whispering wind." :)

Imposing! Threatening. Very emotive image. There is a fantastic balance where all the lines and textures meet at the top of the stairs
