Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Busy (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Canon EOS-350D Rebel XT
Lens: Tokina AF 12-24mm f/4.0 AT-X Pro DX
Location: List Art, Brown
Date: Oct 31, 2005
Aperture: f/4
ISO: 800
Shutter: 1/20 secs
Galleries: Abstract, Architecture
Date Uploaded: Oct 31, 2005

The stairwell in the List Art building at Brown. It is a huge collection of graffiti, murals, drawing, paintings, installations, quotes, paint marks, stratches, textures, etc, that has been going on for at least a decade. Each year something gets added, and since there is basically no white space left, some things dissappear while new things appear so this stairwell really has a life of its own constantantly in metamorphis.

It is a quite dark stairwell so i had to go up to iso 800 to take this without a tripod. I used my tokina 12-24 and this picture is actually a center crop of a much larger shot.

An amazing shot, looks and feels like something that came from a scene in Se7en. Gets a 10 from me.

This is a great photo, and I love the color. I didn't even realize it was a birdseye view at first.

I think it was a good choice to use black and white, while still looking busy it doesn't distract from the image with to many colours (I assume) in the graffiti

Wonderfully rich and complex image, definitely a different interpretation of a classic theme.

the B&W brings out the gaffetti but the picture seems to confuse you to much is going on, but that is the idea of this challenge so i give it a 8

Great picture! Love it! I would have cropped just a little more off the top for this challenge, just to make it look busier.
