There is just so much to enjoy with this photograph. Your eyes flicker and drift to various parts of the image because of all the beautiful chaos. This artist shows how things that have been abandoned and destroyed can be found again in order to be shown and appreciated by the world. I like the curved structure of the stairs in the front and the golden appearance of the twisted staircase in the back. Even though they are different from each other, they create contrast and adds to the image's depth. The walls also add to this effect by creating a balance in the image because it's not too damaged like the stairs in the front, but not smooth like the spiral staircase. Overall, this image is really good, and I'm glad you could to the world the beauty hidden within abandoned places.

On first glance I thought the spiral staircase on the left was brand new and the staircase on the right was rotten, Giving quite a contrast.

The sense depth, paired with the stark emptiness of the space, makes for a stellar shot here.

I would have photoshopped some shit near the spiral staircase, just to keep it extra grungy, so it matches the main staircase.  Though, this is a nice pic.

I love the spiral staircase in the background. It caught my eye immediately amidst all of the rubble, telling of a majestic past. I bet that the mansion was gorgeous in its prime. Beautiful shot.

At first I thought the title said, "Leaving the Party", and I wondered what kind of party could have possibly trashed a place so much. :blushes: Well, now I know better, and I have to say this is a beautiful shot. Abandoned locations never cease to amaze me.
