I took this picture of one of the many chandeliers on a trip I took to the Governor's Mansion in Atlanta, Ga. I hope you guys like it. Any suggestions on this type of photo would be great. Thanks

Great pic! The lights, garland and ribbon running along the stairway's banister is beautiful! I like the angle of the shot as well as the warm lighting. I don't know how else you could have shot this and still retain the elegant architecture of the staircase coupled with the chandelier. Great job. Happy Holidays.....Eric D.

This shot is lovely and very festive for the season. The first thing that caught my eye was the wonderful architecture and the view from below of that splendid chandelier. I hope you can go back and shoot this under the same light conditions, but without the decorations. Lovely as they are, I actually think the ribbons and bannister swags and the wreath tend to distract from the lovely architectural lines. This shot is a great seasonal shot, and one sans decorations and maybe in black-and-white or sepia could be a great architectural shot.

What a great stair case. Decorated very nicely. I like the chandelier as well.

I agree that your choices produced an excellent shot. I feel sorry for the guy who has to change the bulbs in this chandelier.

A great subject to capture and the angle is perfect. The curves sweep us away. I agree that the decorations interfere with the gracefulness of the curves. Hope you can submit another sometime with the smooth curvature of the handrail included.
