Stairways, natural and man-made, are paths up and down. They offer a wealth of opportunities for photographs. Think of overall geometry, point of view, lighting, detail. This is meant to be more than just who can travel to the most exotic location. The stairs are just the starting point. Can you tell a story or set a mood? Think about different compositional techniques that will make the stairs be the focal point of the image.  Photos will be judged on creativity, effective lighting, and overall impact of the image.
