A great capture of this historic gentleman, Leo. Beautifully framed with the clouds above that added that extra touch. Had too be in mono.

The lead image, it captures the sculpture's wily irony.
Happy Birthday, Tovarisch. Russia has always seemed to cultivate leaders on the monstrous / monumental side.

Two very different images of the man, Leo offering two very different moods.

Both excellent, I prefer the lead, the POV, the drama. I think we could do with some of his stature in today’s politics!

An impressive statue Leo - I've never been good at understanding history as it depends on who teaches, reports or writes the story.

Almost the same birthday as me, mine's on the 26th... I've not quite reached 150, though... 😁 Two excellent captures, Leo, like the strong viewpoint in the lead, and there are some wonderful textures in the version too 👍

Looking good for 150.
Both great images, of course, though I have to agree the lead is the more dramatic.

The lead image is very strong, love the pov and the dramatic sky at the background, the light is just perfect on his eye...It looks lively, a great tribute to this international figure...Well Done...

The man who changed the course of modern history. Impossing figure, superb photos, Leo!
22 Apr 2020 7:59PM
grrr... hope I can be harsh. The statue lends itself well for this kind of stark conversion. Together with the angle it works well. But the bottom part lets it down for me, with those treetops (?) intruding on the rhs, and that gap between Vladimir's arm and body seeming a bit like not being post processed as the rest of the sky. perhaps it was, but it looks like a discrepancy. Can't say it's not good, it just feels unfinished to me
