@João Mourão: thank you.. looks like a dangerous place eh? the lighted doorway draws me.. looks like a safe heavan... but who knows what lies beyond!

Kylie Greenan from Richmond, Australia

It does look very inviting, I like the warm glow from below that beckons you in to explore what is inside. Looks like a very interesting place and very inviting. Well seen and captured Emily!

i really like how the doorway towards the back is such a contrast to the rest of the picture. Great shot!

@J. Castillo: thanks J! yup, it's kinda milky n smooth, the light, vs the grittyness

Jasp from Plymouth, United Kingdom

I agree.. it did not look too inviting until I saw the warm glow.

@Howard F.: wow, i'm not sure, looks like it may be! it'll be pretty cool if your shot is what lies beyond!

Emily, Jiufeng is probably my favorite place in N. Taiwan- the history and the culture. I checked the fire extinguisher and we were in the same area. It is like a maze in there.

@Howard F.: I went on a tour.. many parts of taiwan in 10 days so the places have kinda merged in my brain. reviewing the photos i took that day, was it quite hi above sea-lvl? it had a nice atmosphere/feel abt that place slightly diff from the normal ye-shi..

Andrew Gould from Sydney, Australia

Just like the previous one, this is another excellent interpretation by you of your subject matter. The strong saturation makes this really dramatic. The composition and perspective has mystery to it!

bisha from Saitama, Japan

The light at the bottom of the stairs really draws you in. Lovely atmosphere!

23 Oct 2008 8:38am

@bisha: thanks.. the strange thing is my eyes lingered on this photo longer than they did on the actual scene - was in a rush. i guess this photo allowed me more time to appreciate this scene - and others too =P
