Here is what Craig had to say about his image:

Thanks so much to those who voted for my photograph. It feels great getting the nod amongst a solid group of images. I always find built up stringers for curved staircases a true work of art. It took me a bit to get this scene properly set up. I found the overhead fixture to be a bit of a nuisance. I still feel removing it completely might be the best option. I was forced to shoot wider than I wanted in order to get everything in frame and I applied the marquise/transform tool in post to tighten/constrain the composition. I love square comps and feel it definitely made for a stronger image. This was taken with a Pentax K1 // Pentax 15-30mm lens using only ambient light. Five frames, 1-stop increments, applying my standard editing procedures in Photoshop, ACR and Lumenzia. Thank you!
