The statue itself is very imposing, but is the photographic depiction of it a good photo in its own right? I like the comp except forthe niggle thatmaybe I'd have liked you to have included a bit more below the junction of the two elments.

Think a pic like this stands or falls on the composition and then the lighting. The lighting is quite nice, though the whole thing comes across a little bit flat - try playing around a bit with contrast, or better still apply a curve to just lift it a bit with more control

Hope that helps, nice work

Thanks Stephen, your comments are very helpful. I am just begininmg to use Photoshop elements 4 and have a lot to learn.I cropped the pic to remove the street scene below the crop which perhaps distracts from the statue.

Thanks again John
