Found on a walk round a rather overgrown churchyard and it struck me the Angel was still watching over her charge after many years!

Very attractive - overgrown cemeteries are one of my favourite subjects. There's contact with lost personal stories.
I think the main problem here for me is that you are looking down at the sculpture. This is a subject for muddy knees - get down on a level with the face, or even looking up at it. It would be easier to isolate her that way too, and if you moved a little to the left, at a lower viewpoint, you could avoid that background headstone being a distraction.

Charisma, I have an advice too,

might save you from the muddy knees exercises, soiled clothes, family groans

and will make you feel like a proper man of the Wild West (of Europe).

Shoot low subjects from the hip! Your camera has conveniently a flipping back.

Good advice about the shooting angle. It would look better without the stone behind it.


It also is a little flat, menaing low contrast, so Ive uploaded a mod to show what a higher contrast image looks like, and removed the stone also. Also moved the Angel to the left.

Scrol up, click the modifications tab. and view large.


regards


Willie

Mostly covered. Needs a bit of drama, low viewpoint, lighting and so on. Main thing is to put the figure to the left of the frame, not the right.

Willie Hi You are right it is not the best lit subject. It was taken on a walk with the local camera club in a walk round a local village and the weather was not being kind to photographers! In fact I am going there this evening to shoot it again and this time I hope the light is better. Pushing up the contrast really helps and the the removal of the distracting grave stone is good to. If I cant take the photograph from a different angle then that is what I will do. Thanks for your time and helpfulness.
Regards
Fred
