Wanting to show the statue in context, I have deliberately retained the highlights in the shop window.

Its a lovely composition Bill a splendid contrast between the solid still figure and the movement in the window- would still be tempted to lower the brightness of the three lights, the two on the left are a little like two eyes and so somewhat distracting - but then that's not how everyone else is seeing it

The white pillar and her pose puts in in mind that she is a pole dancer, the two eye like lights is someone watching. Sorry to lower the tone Bill! Wink A well thought out and composed image.

A lovely viewpoint of this elegant statue. Such a shame about the window frame though. It's just too white.

The very image of dejection....setting this against the grunge gives it an added depth of meaning. Very poetic. I have mixed feelings about the white post, in a way it adds to the image and acts as a dividing line between two worlds.

I agree with baclark about the pole dancer, but I do not think there is need for me to apologize about lowering the tone to you Bill !! Or perhaps the tone on her pole does need a tad bit of lowering for less brightness ?
Nice one.
Mick.

A thought proving Image Bill and it's still provoking my thoughts.

Very unique capture of this Statue, Bill, with the white partition, dividing the image into two partitions. I would agree, that 'toning some of the bright white highlights down,' would be less distracting & restore some of the details that are obscured in the mid-lower regions of the white molding. I like the colorful & abstract reflections in the glass, and has been commented, the picture is a 'representation of two image frames.' This is a 'unique perspective' in making this particular capture. I can imagine, that if you did a reshoot, Bill,...that a 'totally different perspective of the Statue,' could be portrayed, without the white partition included in the image frame. On another point, a 'sepia or B&W, monochrome,' rendering "could unite 'the somewhat diverse colored elements(Statue, white molding, colored reflections)'," into an image, with greater photographic impact & more focus in the monochrome. Just my thoughts. Good show.
Ciao...Peter Wink

This image just took my breath away - it is exceedingly beautiful. You are one good photographer. I wanted that something special as my UA is overdue and this has to be it.

You kind of have 2 pictures here. I nice, reflections abstract in the left pane, & your dancer in the right. I'd be inclined to go for this "2 for 1 offer" & split them. Personally, I find the one distracts from the other, & my eye is back & forth without settling. I know that the statue is the main subject, but I keep drifting over to the window.

I'll go now. I'm starting to sound like the judge at out last club compo.
