Are you a God

By kel55
Hi all, took this shot at weekend , 20 mins drive from home (if you take the right turn offs) but have never been there , took a mad scotsman to get me there (aka Almiles) .On the day sky was a bit boring , so used couple of effects to to make things bit more interesting. started out to get mono shot with blur sky but may have got a bit carried away in the processing , not sure if this works , any advise to improve would be great ,thanks for looking ,Kel

Quite dramatic and very effective. The composition works well. Is that the mad Scotsman? Smile

This iconic statue has been given an exceptionally dramatic and impactful treatment Kel, The sky looks amazing, the colours and tones of the statue are sublime and "the mad scotsman" at the bottom of the frame gives it epic scale. A very cinematic presentation which I like very much.

Works very well indeed. I agree that the inclusion of the figure has a positive effect.

The Angel of the North or the Gateshead Angel...
Cos they're aall up there blubbin'
Their image is doon the pan
Folks were dyin' te get to heaven
Now nebody wants te gan

When a bairn now draws an angel
Ye knaa what yer get
Not a nice heavenly body
But a rusty jumbo jet

Lookin' like it's been landed
By a pilot from ower the toon
Who didn't knaa the proper way
And just revorsed it doon

I can see it clearly from wor hoose
Which isn't very nice
Whaat wi' that and the neighbour's clapped oot car
It's knocked thoosands off the price

Folk taalk of it's mystic powers
Just give it's feet a rub
One local wifie did it
And now she's in the club

A lottery grant paid for it
So aah shouldn't moan and shout
It may be an ugly rusty thing
But still... it cost us nowt

Personally, I can't abide it
But hinnies, let's be fair
Love it or loathe it
We aall knaa it's there

It wisnae me at the bottom of the frame, my camera's much bigger! Grin Great angle and I love the relationship between the figure and the statue. Scale and as your title suggests, some reverance. The processing on the angle is excellent with lovely colour and contrast. The sky is a bit OTT for me coz there's some burn out and some halo around the angel (yes I know, sort of appropriate!). Still jumps out of the thumbnails as a classy image! Just need to find the time to start processing my versions now. Top weekend cheers Smile
