There is a lot of dimension and depth in this photograph. The colours make up a perfect dissonance and the stairs railing detail adds a dash of mystery. The angle is unusual, as though you are standing there yourself and staring at the ceiling. It's visually pleasing. In my perception, blue stairs represent the sky and as I look at this picture I can see myself looking up towards the "sky". They say the sky is the limit when you wish to achieve something. The stairs represents the road filled with mysteries that leads to the very end, where the light is (bright spot at the end of the stairs). All in all, this photo leaves a certain alice-in-wonderland'esqe feeling. It's magical.
The focus is a little bit off in some parts. It doesn't blend so well. The stairs really blend in to the photograph; I like the technique of that part. The contrast how the stairs go up is really amazing. It's a great original piece. The dimensions are great, but also a bit confusing. It makes me dizzy. It reminds me of the sky at the top almost. I think that it's a little too blurry at the bottom steps. The light from the window blurs out a bit of the stairs, but in my opinion this is a great piece.
Beautifully exposed and composed. The textures of the paint give it character, while the angle of view gives it depth and body. I disagree that the slight blur around the edges is a problem, it's the nature of the lens used and gives the capture a signature look caused mainly by the effects of the "eye" you see through.
