A fine composition. But would it work better in mono? the bright green leave in the background catch the eye.

Thank you, Albert. I tried it, but it did not work well.

The composition is fascinating. That's a very calculating gaze. For me the damage to the sculpture adds to the urgency.
I have no experience of Topaz but have seen some interesting stylised images produced in it. I'm not sure that this effect works for me here.

An unusual statue, presumably from the 19th century. The pleading look doesn't somehow quite accord with the body language. I think you have selected the best possible angle to take the photograph as all the important elements of the figure come into play.
I'm with Albert on the bright green; it's specifically the bunch of a dozen leaves on the left, not the overall tone.

Thank you and thanks to Bill. I took this under rain and it was not a good shot. What I did was to enlighten the face which was dark using PS and tried to clarify it using Topaz. I did not use an effect. Still, it is far from what I'd desire it to be. It looks like a bad video shot which I hate. So, the question is why I uploaded it. Because I am fascinated with the subject, a very sympathetic and sentimental little statue left in the garden among ancient statues, it was hardly noticeable. I'll try a proper shot when I visit the place again.

strong image. It's a shame that these figures deteriorate!

Plenty of detail here, Nezih keep experimenting with the Topaz processing as there are good results to be had when you are used to it.

Love the processing which makes it look like its coming to life.

I quite like this shot! fingers not a problem for me! nor the bush behind! the only thing is the small green shrub which could easily be removed by her feet, I feel if that's remove the rest would fall nicely into place! all in all a very pleasing photo, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
