Moore Heads

By baclark
Hi everyone, many thanks for C&C's on - You Tickling My Nose? Sorry for mostly clicks yesterday, we had a fun but tiring day trip to Kent, to see the new Turner Contemporary gallery in Margate, loved it! Pics to follow.......

Then on to my childhood holiday haunt of Broadstairs. Yes we paddled in the sea, but let me tell you that after 10 seconds, my ankles hurt from the cold! Smile It is the North Sea after all!

Here's one of Moore's bronze sculptures from Hatfield House. This is called King and Queen and dates to 1952-3. It stands 164cm tall and is one of just a couple on the lawns. V2 gives the setting, it's much more cropped that I wanted but the bright sky and other visitors gave me little option.

Thanks for looking, hope you are enjoying the BH weekend?

You have chosen the pov for V1 most carefully - the figures look more imposingly tall than they really are. And in V2 they look more active than the chap in the chair!

V2 for me - love the inclusion of and lack of interaction from the man engrosed in his book, taking advantage of the shade

V1 is enigmatic, slightly disturbing. I'm reading expressions into those blank canvases. V2 - I love the way they are watching the seated gentleman. And he doesn't realise...

Like both. V2 is wonderful in including the detached reader echoing their pose but for me, has to be V1.

Great shot Barbara, definitely V1 for me.

The pov in V1 is great - the two beautifully textured and shaped heads against that clear blue sky is riveting. V2 is not only a great composition but it's fun too. Love both these shots.

Thought it was a couple of ducks with headphones on untill I read your description. Still what do I know about sculpture Wink
Nice work Barbara, hope you enjoyed your visit to Kent, we were just a few miles from you at a zoo in Canterbury.

Two super images Barbara. V1 is a super image with that blue sky for background, but it's V2 for me today, with the juxtaposition of the sculptures and the seated gentleman; an excellent composition, well done!

Two great captures, Barbara, they contrast well against that lovely blue sky. Nice to see the wider view in V2 also Smile

I favour V1 for the close detail of the sculpture, but getting V2 not only puts them into context but is amusing as well.

Beautifully done - I think the comp in V1 is wonderful - and against the clear blue sky - just wonderful!

Two cracking shots, Barbara, both superbly captured, V1 for me, love the point of view.

I love the imposing composition of V1, but would have to pick V2 if pushed, for the amusing contrast between the regal couple and their subject.
