Mozart's Vienna

By GillyB    
Staying with Vienna and black and white, this is the Mozart memorial in the gardens of the Hofburg Palace.
Mozart died young and poor and so was buried in a paupers grave and not in the composers section of the main graveyard in Vienna.

Many thanks as always for your time ....... I know these are not everyones cup of tea!

edit - I have uploaded a variant in colour just to show a better idea of location.

Nice play of light and shadows across the foreground and the statue bathed in light makes a good focal point. Like the conversion too Gill.

V1 is superb - composition, light and shade and the inclusion of the treble clef.

Looks good in mono.
Beautifully composed, I really like how you can see the note in the foreground. Looks brilliant in b&w.
Very well done!
