Down the steps…

Of just one wing of the New York Public Library; no idea what wing or where these they went to.  In this post I am combining the WPC of intricate (the amazing stone work here) with Monochrome Monday.  How’s that for a two-fer! I converted the color image using Nik’s Silver Effect Pro 2 pumping up the contrast in order to bring out all of the detail in the stonework.  Again, amazing craftsmanship.

    Nice shot and I like how you processed it. It makes me want to see what is down there. Cheers =)

      Thanks! I wanted to go down there too but wasn’t sure I was supposed to 🙂

        lol – I was recently asked to leave the property of one of the Newport mansions that is now a museum because I did not have a ticket and was outside making photos.

        Wait! You were outside and they gave you grief? How rude!!!

        The good news is that I got my shots in before being excused. 😀

    Good shot – very complex you did a great job capturing all the conflicting angles.

      Thanks. There were some parts of that library that made me think I was at Hogwarts with all of the angles and stairs.

        I can see that = especially in the dark areas.

    Interesting and detailed shot. Were the ghostbusters anywhere in sight?

      That section was closed for repairs or something because I was going to be right there if it had been open!

    The black and white is perfect for highlighting the intricacies of the stonework. I love the beauty of the old buildings.

    Wow, the details in this shot are absolutely stunning!

      Thank you. That building is amazing I could happily go back and find more places 🙂

    Your two-fer came out perfect. The intricacy of the stone work was captured and the monochrome came out perfectly. I am able to see the downward progression easily but as I step down I want to know what is behind that door at the bottom??

    A very nice symmetrical image. It really works in b&w.
