Two more different aspects of the model at the Eden Project. Both full frame, not cropped, and I admit to altering the backgrounds.
This was assembled using 3.3 tonnes of carefully selected WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) which reflects the amount of WEEE that an average person living in the UK will throw away in their lifetime.

V2: 1/150sec @ f7.1, ISO100, -0.7stepEv, 9mmFL, AP.

Reminds me very much of Short Circuit. I love version 1, if the subject had been something from nature we could have called it a great landscape with a lovely sky. Not sure what to call this - sculpturescape? Robotscape? But whatever it is, it looks really good!

Thought-provoking is the word, especially when portrayed thus. You have made V2 look almost tragic, which I suppose augments the sculptor's intention.

Suitably scary plus strangely poignant, it's a monster that's suffering. V1 gives the more menacing aspect, and the greater sense of pain for me.

I love this WEEE man Pamela - your images make me want to go see him.
You have captured some fabulous detail in V1 - the sky suits - cracking image.
V2 love the skyward look - brought some 'Genesis' lyrics to mind :-
Watcher of the skies watcher of all
His is a world alone no world is his own.

These two images will have to share my User Award Pamela. Smile

Your images invoke a sense of struggle to be alive in an in-animate object - that says so much for the sculpter, but even more that you have captured the angst in its expression so clearly. And I agree - the background is just right.
