Photographer's Note

I've decided to re-post this picture from the Kodak Theatre, as the original was too dark at the bottom half. In order to be able to increase the brightness, I cropped off the big window on the left side, not to "blow out" that part. At the same time re-positioning the curved bench and the big urn, leaving the top lighter than the bottom and the star-sprinkled stairway running somewhat diagonal through the picture.

Which shows tourists - such as I - visiting this entertainment and shopping complex at the intersection of Hollywood & Highland, which since 2002 is the new home of the annual Academy Awards ceremonies, also known as "The Oscar Night".

So this is the entrance, where The Stars last week climbed their stairway to heaven...

Image is now differntly cropped, adjusted for brightness +20 and contrast +20, resized, USM 150/1.0/3, framed (color from the urn) and saved for Web.
