Beautiful shot! Superb color, excellent detail and I love that you've capture the shot with the two people in it, which provides scale to the scene. I'm also particularly drawn to the handrail to the right side of the stairs and its slight reflection washing onto the orange.

@Ron: Thanks Ron!....I'm still learning with the lens I used on this shot - it's an extreme wide angle Sigma 10-20.

It's fantastic for landscape photos but much more difficult for architectural shots.

His use of color, your capture of it -- both masterful! I love the layered angles you've captured on the two levels of this space.
