NHM: Dark Stairs

These are the stairs that lead up to the Sequoia on the second floor; I was standing on the balcony above the stairs looking down on them... It was the light that caught my attention: I took many photos of people climbing the stairs (casting interesting shadows), but the simplicity of this shot made it seem more appealing. The floor is surprisingly reflective, and I (spot) metered for a bright patch on the floor which led to this dark tonality; I converted to mono, and while I liked that version, I think that I prefer the almost mono original (albeit slightly desaturated here).
