    thanks for the suggestion

    the main thing about this shot is just an abstract shape based on a spiral staircase so no human elements

    Hi Ron, I like your photo here. I modified it abit, somewhat like an artist style I know (his name is Rocky Schenck). A bit darker, slightly diffused.

    Nothing special really. Done in PS.

    Essentially I like to darken the photo, but retain the highlight on the handle and lighter area below the stairs.

    First add a curve layer, adjust to make it darker, while retaining highlight.

    Further fine tune the photo by dodging & burning it. You can do this in many ways, but I choose to select all>copy merger>paste to a new layer. Then I create another new layer with overlay mode and select fill with 50% grey. I will use brush at 10% opacity to burn (select black) or dodge (select white) on the new layer. Sorry, I hope it is clear. I am lousy at explaining.

    Finally I duplicate the layer and apply gaussian blur to it. I adjust the opacity of this layer to my taste.
