...I couldn't resets the statue here when I saw the sky behind it. Stands on a hillside overlooking the main route through South Uist.
Lovely use of low viewpoint + wide angle, the sculpture seems to be looking down protectively over the little community.
really like the pov dougie brilliant light and that sky is just wonderful a real beauty nice one
Good pov for this Dougie.
I cropped this very carefully because of a bright pink bench at the left hand edge of the frame, the choice was simple.
I remember seeing this when we drove through last year. The houses look so tiny from this viewpoint and the sky is wonderful.
As the others have said, the PoV is excellent in this and makes the most of a very good sky. I also like the implied vector between the child's gaze and the distant houses which helps draw attention to them even though they occupy a small part of the frame. It also makes you think of longing for home which in the context, makes me think about the Highland Clearances. Poignant and a great image.
she's well in charge here
Thanks for all the early comments my friends.
By pointing the lens up you have brought considerable emphasis on the subject matter, placing the monument against the big sky and minimising the land mass in frame: what you have also managed to do is keep the horizon level, something I never achieve with the lens pointed up, and which I have never managed to correct in Photoshop.
Wow, it's huge. I just wouldn't expect this type of sculpture in Uist, more standing stones. This'll give future generations something to puzzle over.
It's well documented on the web Chris.
A beautiful statue, captured very well, with all the details. Nice to see what the Lady is showing to the child. Worth watching, yes.

Far more substantial than all our 'virtual' archives, though!
A most elegant statue, portrayed with due reverence I think.
beautiful sky, just what we need in a picture such as this one Dougie

She is beautiful against that sky. To think she sees this view in all weathers and skies. Moira
