Here go my reviews! At least one of them will be fake, can you spot which one(s)?

This is a haunting little forest scene, and I find that the low contrast on the grays makes it ambiguous whether that's a staircase or a small road. We have some overexposure in the trees at upper center, but perhaps a bright light in that area just adds another story hook. A decent mid to upper tier photo for a round like this.

It's a staircase in a wooded area that is useful. Must mean there is a house of trail nearby. Not sure how this fits the prompt.

If I just focus on the staircase, I can trick myself into thinking that the staircase may also be going up. The background keeps me telling me otherwise, but I guess that's just me fooling myself.

Either way, this does pose some interesting questions about the location itself. Why are there stairs here in the middle of nowhere? Maybe there's some ruins nearby? Who knows? This may be an archaeological find (which would be quite a bonus if this is in the USA).

I'll have to agree with Griseus that I don't see how the prompt makes its way here, but I like the photo nonetheless.
