Here in Tenerife is a sculpture that seems to suit many purposes. Thanks for looking, Sylvia

Looks like the RAS fans will be thrilled. Like the twirlly section though clearly the bit to the RH side makes a far better seat! Tongue

"What a great piece of modern sculpture, one of which is both aesthetically pleasing and practical.?"

I don't like that sculpture at all, Sylvia, but it does provide a convenient place to park bums Wink Carol

Wonderful composition. Find your frame, wait for something to happen in it... The walking man balances the seated figures perfectly, as does the fact that he is looking at you whereas the others have their backs turned.
Public art works best for me when the public interacts with it. So I approve.

It's the figure placement that makes this should a good composition. I'm with Moira on the interaction. A very well worked image.

Quote: I am trying hard to get composition right. Sylvia

Can I recommend an excellent book, The Photographer's Eye by Michael Freeman? It's not about rules, or 'right' composition, and he never once mentions thirds! It's about how different compositions and formats work, how the eye 'reads' an image, how it travels round within the frame. In a sense I found it quite shocking as it gives an explanation for things that I had previously regarded as sacred mystery, but it's an incredibly inspiring read. And it was another member here who recommended it to me.

This is the type of art that Mikbee would appreciate if only he were here to view it!
