Photo: "Not Just the Ascent"


I shot this image last month with my good friend +Brian Matiash (who now lives in the Bay Area after getting a job with Google!) while out at the Mare Island Naval Shipyard in Vallejo. While not the most elaborate staircase, I loved the pastel colors and large windows in the lobby of this office-style building.

I recently picked up a few of +Nicole S. Young's Lightroom presets and finished editing this image with a preset called 'Stormy Skies.' Though it was designed for landscapes, I felt the tones and clarity really helped this image pop.
