Life's a puzzle

By AnnChown  
Not sure about this as it was taken in very strong light when we were in Pamplona and the sculpture head is black - but I think it's better in mono. Comments and criticisms are very welcome and thank you for your time.
Ann
I've just uploaded a v2 as I thought the right hand side looked a bit bright - so I used the trusty graduated filter to decrease the exposure a tad.

I think this works well in mono as it shows the detail on the sculpture. Well captured.

Excellent mono, bringing out all the tones of the sculpture. A stoke of genius to catch the little boyin the frame as well.

It's quite candid Danny and heavily cropped. Otherwise I'd have a better image had I paid him! Smile
