[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
these escalators found in a shopping mall
i had planned this shot since last week :)
part of my "urban indoor landscape" series :P

it was quite exciting to get this photo today, i was followed by the mall's security up and down the escalators as i survey the location, i think they got nervous when they saw me walking around with a big camera :P

remove colors
decreased levels
increased contrast
oval lasso around the center area (80px) inverse, apply soft vigenette filter

Muy bien la composición y el blanco y negro.
Vida cotidiana que se da en todo el mundo.

the thumbnail doesn't look so great but it pays to see the actual photo.

You should have shown the guards the master piece u took with ur camera. They would have been more relaxed...or nervous after that! :P

TFS...also thanks for ur opinion on my food photo :)

You are so good in finding a best location for shoting.You have the artistic eye that can locate a best composition.And one more thing, your photoshop skill also talented.Well done!!!!!

I love the graphism with the many diagonals of this shot. Great choice in BW.
A fav to me.
Regards. Francesco

beautiful photo with great lines xu.
this is amazing.

Its woth to be followed by securities! Its great shot Xu. I like you prefer B&W, so no color takes the attention. Eyes can easily caught by the bright stairs. Very well done, Congrats!

As I allways say, Such a perfect shot need a perfect look around, What you have it in best mood. You saw graphism so well in this shot.

A huge congrast from M.

Hello Xu,

Excellent piece of work. Good repetitions with lovely light. It reminds me of a large retail shop I saw in Kuala Lumpur years ago, elevators all over. TFS,
Many thanks for your comment on
Brighten My Day

The graphism is great, but what strikes me is le light !the bw is of course perfect for the shot, timeless and neutral...very well seen and done :)

I had this idea too. But security guard also stopped me from shooting an interlacing escalators. Yours is cool. I would have loved to see colors on this one. But thats just me.


interesting concept, look a little under on my monitor, but thats fine. Great series, hope to see more.

it is like dna spiral.. i think shopping penetrates our genes.. :) very good work..

The different perspective and forms that all your photographs have are wonderful. It draws me into them to find what atracted you to that scene in the fist place. With this one I saw the shape and had to open the file to find the little suprises of the people and what they were doing. Great urban landscape. Have you ever thought about useing dramatic stage lighting in urban settngs to tell a story? I saw a show last night and thought it may work well with your style.

Hi Xu, I like very much these X's you have captured, great pp work and I like the halo you did. Good reflections on the metal.

This is really a great pov with all the people going up and down thos busy escalators.

Cheers, Yan :)

Hi Xu,

Great B&W photo! It looks fantastic with the contrast and details you show us! Very creative work!
Very well done!

Excellent composition, very effective photo, and a good choice for black and white. Nice photo.

Hi Xu,

Hahahaha, I know how you feel... When I was walking around in Timesquare with my camera, I have the same feeling too... but the different is, the one that look nervous is the Security, she came up and told me to put it away, luckily I had already taken what I want to take. :P

I like the POV of this shot, good choice of b&w too... :) Well done. Thanks for sharing,


This is a great photo! Very nice composed, good tonal reproduction. Excellent presentation of depth!
