Family of Man

By Alan_Baseley    
And now for a change. We took our 17month old Grandson (and all the paraphernalia that comes with him) to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park last week so I decided to take my much lighter TZ40 rather than the Pentax.
This is a shot of and through one of the exhibits from Dame Barbara Hepworth's group "The Family of Man".

Thanks to everyone for the C & Cs on Speckled Wood, with special thanks to Phil, Uma, Nigel, Adrian & Cathy for their UAs. I'm really chuffed it did so well.

An interesting image within an image. Superbly observed and captured Alan.

I've tried several times for pretty well the same composition but not got it right - it's a question of getting the angles on both the foreground and distant sculptures right without either decapitating the other sculpture or including the sky above the trees... You got it right, I covet this one! Focus, depth of field, textures - perfect.

A different and immaginative take on this well known sculpture. Well done Alan.

I love the way you have filled the frame with the sculpture and got a view of another one through the hole.
I was trying this only last Monday, but there was nothing to see through the gapSad!
