This is quite interesting. Although the pic doesn't seem that leveled, this would do well in an Architecture challenge. Colours could be a little warm, or perharps a black and white shot could comunicate better? Not really surrealism...4

Sorry but it's not surreal IMO, just vaguely abstract.

i've been looking at this for a while now, and i can't find the surrealism in it sorry, maybe it's the angle? or maybe i'm just not seeing it myself ...

Escher wasn't a surrealist, and I don't get surrealism from this picture, but it is such a beautiful shot, so we'll keep the non-surreal part a secret and I'll vote this a 10

Perhaps it would be a tiny bit more convincing if it had been entitled 'handrail.' It's an interesting photo of an interesting place. Except for the low angle, there is not much hint of the surreal.

An interesting point of view. The brown ceiling support looks like hanging curtains. The shadows at the top of the stairs work really well, and the wall really has the appearance of a floor. Great job. A 9.

nice play of light and angles here - it nearly does look like escher! (though more colorful)
