Scarlett would have loved this place!!!
This is the side view of the main staircase of the newly renovated Omni Bedford Springs Resort in Bedford, Pennsylvania. I loved all the crossing angles and lines!!!
Here’s a bit of history nipped from their website …
“Few properties can boast the historic significance of Bedford Springs Resort, located in the Allegheny Mountains of south-central Pennsylvania. For more than 200 years, the eight mineral springs located on the resort’s property served as an important gathering place. Eventually, the resort would be the site of many significant moments in American history, hosting a long list of celebrities, wealthy clientèle, corporate magnates and dignitaries from around the world. To date, the resort has hosted 10 US Presidents, seven of whom visited during their presidency.”

It’s been treated to HDR in Photomatix from a single, hand-held image that was duplicated 3 times to an eval of +/-2, Orton in Photoshop, some edge blur in I-Photo and some twiddling in CapNx2.
