A nice picture at an interesting angle, this captures a close up view of the palace in a way that shows a fair amount of the structure around the stairs here while also showing the wonderful cloud line and just a hint of the trees. However, I do think this shot would have benifitted from being at a slightly different angle because it does make you feel like the main structure featured here is hidden behind the stair.

While there is some nice structural character to the stair wall atg this angle, I can’t help but think the main building in this image would have been more impressive. A tad more trees wouldn’t have hurt either, particularly if you could balance them a tad more.

Still the ability to realize this photographic opertunity and snap a photo of the buildings and sky is probably worth a 5 of 5.

Originality a 3 of 5.

Technique this time I think I will give a 4 of 5. While the photo was taken expertly, I can’t help but think it may have been better with just a few tweaks.

This photo definitely still holds the ‘wow’ factor to a high level, but it is somewhat dampened by the urge to try and peak up over the edge of the stairs a tad more. I give it a 4 of 5 for impact.
What do you think?
