Thankyou for your interest in The Shopper 1.
I found your comments very helpful.
I have been playing with several of the other images that I took of it - rotating, cropping, mirroring, etc.
Here are 4 versions of the same image, and I'd be interested in knowing which you favour.
This time they are all in colour as most of you preferred that.

This is part of a sculpture at the Henry Cort Sculpture Park in Fareham Centre, the pedestrianised area of West Street. The "puddled" wrought iron sculptures are themed on Farehamís market town history and the exhibition is the largest of its type in Britain, providing a unique and interesting thoroughfare.
The project commemorated the inventor of the "puddling" process for wrought iron and focused on combining the materials and techniques available prior to his death in 1800 with contemporary design.

Another great presentation, Pamela Smile Think I prefer the orientation of V2 & V4 - don't know why, it just feels more right! If choosing between those two, then it's V2 in the landscape format Wink

Between V3 and V4 for me. The slant in V1 & V2 is too extreme. As to rising or falling diagonal, I'm surprised that it seems to make little emotional difference here.
I do wish her foot wasn't cut off, even if it meant a bit less at the top of the frame.
I do like her, I might even be tempted to go to Fareham to see her!

V2 for me, I love the diagonal composition and the way all the lines are converging on the RHS out of the picture.

Cannot put my finger on it precisely, but the base of the statue seems to be fighting with the statue for attention in V1 &2 so I prefer V3 & its mirror image V4.

My preference is for V2. It's the extreme forward movement that appeals I suppose Smile
There is something of Wallis and Gromit in the 'hands' - or rather, of one of Wallis' ladyfriends Blush

Torn between V3 and V4, the statue just fits the crop better.

V3 or 4 for me. The more portrait format suits the image better. As mentioned, V1 and 2 the slant is a bit too muchWinkSmile

The correct lead one for V1.
It is the slantiest of them all !!

I cannot decide which I prefer but they are unique variations on a theme.

Super lines on the diagonal, although my eyes prefer the angle in V4.
Lovely subtle colour and detail.

V1 for me too, the hands are brilliant here.
Is that vandalism along the edges of the bag?
