As with my The Labyrinth shot, this one was taken in the staircase at the Royal Ontario Museum on Toronto. Sadly, in similar nature to the aforementioned photo, editing was quite tiring as the walls were dirty and had to be cleaned up through a marathon clone stamp tool session in Photoshop. I guess the effort paid off as this one was named photo of the day on One Eyeland a couple of days ago.

As you can see, this one was shot in Tungsten white balance to give a more sci-fi effect since the staircase looks pretty sci-fi to begin with. In addition to lots of clone stamping, editing involved blending together three exposures in Photoshop, boosting contrast in Color Efex Pro 4 and finishing things off with some dodging and burning, smart sharpening and a 4x5 crop to give the composition better balance.
